After an afternoon spent in Museo Thyssen, I walked to a corner to wait for my bus home. Then I remembered this restaurant with fancy Spanish decor (thanks again, Jaime) consisting of manton de manila (spanish shawl) and paineta (fancy hair comb/pin).
I was too full to order a meal (Museo Thyssen has a good café) so I headed for the bar. The aroma of hot chocolate wafted in the air, so I promptly ordered a cup.
And a tiny slice of a cheesecake which I devoured in an instant. And I thought I wasn't hungry. Sweets do that to you. They confuse your brain cells and make you feel deprived if you don't give in to your gustatory whims.
But let's go back to the decor. Those painettas look so lovely, ei? I couldn't take a photo of the manton spread out and hanging by a window because there were diners there.
A pity. But maybe next time I'd have lunch by that window and have a good photo of the lively decor from that side. Now, off to catch my bus!
