Cutredad madrileña

There is a unstranslatable word that superbly describes Madrid: "cutre".

The word, enchanting and even mysterious, can't even be translated to other "spanishes": if you are from another spanish-speaking country you have no way to understand it other than to come here and let yourself live the experience... Suddenly, you feel initiated and fully capable of understanding not just the word, but a must deeper essence of what Madrid is, and what makes it in a strange way, beautiful.

Figure: calamari sandwich (bocadillo de calamares) defying the concept of a sandwich and fully embracing the essence of Spain's capital.

See you on Monday!
