TIPA – Madrid

TIPA – not sure which year, but we were in Madrid. Myself and William Cheung stayed on for an extra and popped round to Spanish Publisher and TIPA president,  Juan Varela,  for dinner. We had traditional Tapas and wine and spent a very enjoyable evening living like the Spaniards.

TIPA organised a visit to the Monastery of El Escorial and a trip by train to Sergovia

And in the evening we ate at Casa Patas  and were then entertained by traditional flamenco dancers

I dragged Will off to find a Spanish Cash Converters and bought a couple of CDs
