Am I the only one who thinks that time is just flying by? May was here for a flash and now, we’re already welcoming June. For me, June means terraces and sun and counting down the days until the beach. But, for those of us who are in Madrid for the month of June, there’s a bunch of saucy stuff going on to keep you occupied:
Paint Glow Madrid – Just when you were sitting around wondering, “Man, where in the world could I find an all night day-glow paint war?” here comes Paint Glow Madrid, June 22nd in Vincente Calderón stadium. 15€ and you’re good to go in “Europe’s largest paint party”.
Madrid on Bike – Saturday or Sunday morning is the perfect time for the Madrid Bike Tour organized by City Hall. If you’ve never cruised down the middle of Acalá in mid-morning before the traffic starts, I highly recommend it. Also nice was the drunk, toothless man who chased me down Las Huertas while trying to keep up with the tour guide. Oh, this city never ceases to surprise!
Edward Hopper at the Thyssen Museum – A few years ago, someone asks me about my favorite American artist and I eloquently said, “huh?” A few years later, I saw a Hopper exhibition in Rome and fell in love. Go there and fall in Hopper love like I did.
Coño! The Europe Cup! – Forget everything I just mentioned. Why bother leaving the house when the Europe Cup is here? And guess who already has their cheap Thai-factory-made-knock-off Spanish Football Jersey? That’s right – me!! No Puyol this year, but I still have high, high hopes!!!
