Andalusia

Lines of orange trees
Tell stories of a city
With its bright fruit juice.

Dear Lover

Lover, Beloved,
With whom air and joy is shared,
By whom tears soon driedโ€”

Being excited about solo travel wished in near future has made me remember places visited alone years ago. One of them is Madrid. Exciting one! Also ridiculous one! This trip was where I had: Korean food for lunch (my hunger came earlier, while people in Madrid have lunch at around 2pm so the most recommended Madrid restaurant was not open yet), Chinese silk bought (order from my beautiful best friend who was craving for it), lapis lazuli earring studs purchased for โ‚ฌ80 (found them only S$40 in Lucky Plaza, might be only IDR300,000 in Jakarta), walking around the same street 4 times to find one place that was shown very clearly in Google Map…. I was lost in mind because of too many handsome faces on the road ๐Ÿ˜‚

Madrid though wonโ€™t be a city I will go alone anymore. This place is too romantic to go without a lover.

One more thing, be careful of pickpockets! Too many, too many!

Salaam. ๐Ÿ’

I still believe I saw Cristiano Ronaldo in Starbucks there but none of my friends believe me ๐Ÿ˜†
