  • Welcome back, to Madrid.

  • Day number 6

  • So we're just leaving our apartment now

  • and going to go explore Madrid.

  • We're gonna go explore the...

  • ...east side of Plaza Mayor,

  • since yesterday we kinda wandered around the old town.

  • We're planning to have lunch at one of the markets

  • and we're going to, hopefully, end the night with some churros!

  • J: It's going to be really hot! It's going to be 35 degrees!

  • A: But at what time will it be that? J: 5pm A: That's crazy! W: YEH!

  • Cos' the sun! it sets at like 10pm or something here...

  • A: So we're just at the local supermarket...

  • ...and look, they have a great selection of little pastries here. So, if you want a little snack...

  • ...or if you have one near you and you don't have time to get breakfast...

  • So, I'm just going to gra a croissant and I'm just going to grab a "Jah-Mon"

  • W: Jamon! A: Jamon *giggles*

  • W: Look how funny it is, you just sweep your bread to the side. A: Here we go!

  • Winner!

  • Grab a bag down the bottom...

  • ...and then that way,

  • it's so hygienic, because noone else will ever touch your food.

  • And I'm gonna get one of these...

  • ...it looks scrumptious!

  • Winner!

  • This one has a bit of ham and cheese.

  • There were so many delicious bakeries near our apartment in Madrid

  • And because it was Summer,

  • we didn't feel like eating any hot food for breakfast,

  • so these bakeries, were the perfect place to go.

  • Yesterday we walked past this bakery

  • on the way home, and we decided, yep, we're gonna have this for breakfast.

  • What I got, was um...

  • ...chocolate

  • a chocolate flute?

  • and then I also got an empanadilla...

  • ...a meat one.

  • This is how it looks like.

  • and what did you get Jenny?

  • J: I got the empanadilla as well, but I got the tuna and onion

  • J: and this sweet pastry as well.

  • W: Ooo...an apple...apple J: Some apple glazed...coconut...kind of thing.

  • W: and what did you get Anton?

  • A: Tuna and onion...and a croissant for later.

  • and I'm currently eating ham...

  • After breakfast

  • we set out exploring the streets of Madrid.

  • We eventually wandered into El Retiro Park,

  • which is a huge park in the middle of the city.

  • Inside the park, you will find a large artificial pond,

  • can you count how many fishes are inside?

  • For lunch, we decided to go to the local market

  • and see what we could find.

  • Look at all the jamon!

  • Today, we wandered into Mercado Anton Martin

  • and look at all the goodies we came home with.

  • We got some local delicacies. A: Real local food!

  • So we...well Anton...made friends with a lot of the locals

  • and then they recommended a lot of food for us.

  • So, we got some chicken

  • and it was stewed in some onion and garlic

  • and it was locally made by a lady in a small store

  • and the locals were all saying it was really good.

  • So we got a little to try.

  • Apart from the chicken, we also got this black ink squid.

  • W: and then we got... A: Beef Ragu...

  • it's basically a stew that they have here which is a local delicacy as well.

  • And these cherries were so cheap! Jenny, how much were they?

  • W: For this whole bowl? J: A dollar something...

  • W: One Euro something...

  • A: Which for us is ridiculously cheap

  • back home in Australia

  • they're pretty expensive.

  • And then, of course,

  • we are in Madrid, so we had to get jamon.

  • A: But we got some special Jamon.

  • W: Yeh, we got it from the market,

  • there was a stall called "Ismael".

  • So, we got two varieties of the black fur pig.

  • A: So we have two black pigs here,

  • and they're from different areas

  • and they're both fed acorns.

  • These are the highest quality ones that the store has.

  • So, it's actually about $129 euros!

  • a kilo.

  • and then this is a white pig

  • and here...

  • we got some olives as well, which was recommended by the same guy that was helping us out with the meat.

  • A: and then we actually met another guy there.

  • W: Yeh, that was the guy that recommended these stuff to us.

  • A: and so, olives here...these are some stuffed olives.

  • This is with sardines

  • and then inside there, you can see a mussel.

  • So there's olives stuffed with mussel and a bit of capsicum.

  • Then we got...there's cheese inside... they're little bell peppers.

  • and then this one's an anchovy

  • so you can see the anchovy is a lot darker than the sardine, and probably a lot saltier as well.

  • and then at the meat place, they obviously also sell cheese.

  • We got some different local cheeses,

  • Obviously the Camembert isn't, that's French.

  • A: This one's the normal cheese that's aged. W: Is that the fungus one?

  • A: Yeh, that's the fungus one

  • it's actually got fungus through it.

  • This one's a local one

  • and we got three slices.

  • It's not as strong.

  • This one you can have a lot of the time

  • and have a decent amount of quantity, so we got a slice each

  • and this one...

  • is a really nice blue cheese

  • so you can see some of the blue there.

  • From the olive store we got this garlic

  • it's actually pickled,

  • it doesn't taste like garlic!

  • It's really odd.

  • It actually has a really nice light taste to it

  • and then we have some olives here that have been stewed for a really long time

  • in some sort of tomato base, I think.

  • Then we got some two other delicacies,

  • this is just a salad that they have

  • W: Ensalada Russia...something like that...they were saying it's a Russian salad.

  • A: Yeh, they actually name it Russian salad

  • and this is something you gotta have

  • cold tomato soup, the liquid one.

  • After lunch, we had a bit of a siesta.

  • If you are visiting Spain during Summer,

  • you will quickly find, that a siesta is necessary, to escape the summer heat

  • Afterwards, we met up with some friends for dinner.

  • It was so much fun, just hopping around different tapas bars

  • trying different tapas.

  • Everyone: Cheers!

  • This place is famous for there churros

  • and the best thing, it's open 24 hours!

  • We stayed there and chatted until late,

  • and at the strike of midnight,

  • it was officially my birthday.

  • What a great way to end our trip in Madrid and Spain.
