a day of sightseeing image or it is by heading back to the city center to the well known street of. this is where numerous toughest bars are located the spanish typically eat top of the snack between meals and they are always served with a treat. in the way that does nowadays is very common i learned many people know that the original the word is. because when the only times when you i mean your stores are doing they would serve it with a clover like this in which would be a bit of a tease are nowadays when you ask for stuff that's a make and serve you something like these you know we have a little bit of cheese we have turkey so and we have great steaks. madrid might have a big city feel to it but life here moves at a slow leisurely pace and then there's also with jurors and enjoy when visiting this city. most certainly everyone

2:50 pm
right spot and have the right size moon or full moon and sell it when you can see just enough light in your landscape while still leaving the sky dark enough so you can see the stars. you took on seeing those three years to take good pictures of all twelve zodiac signs. the resulting photos are now available for purchase and dangles already has ideas for where he'd next like to capture his stars. and finally the first christmas markets are starting to open to the public here in germany and one of the best ones is located in the western german city of aachen with the famous cathedral as a backdrop here you'll find a special kind of junior bread known as printing while the recipe dates back centuries and its tradition carries on to this day and that is why we have put it
