On 9 November the Madrileños celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of the Almudena, their patron saint. It was a lovely day, cool, crisp, and sunny. Typical of Madrid in the early Fall.

There were the traditional procession, the High Mass, people joining in the festivities. They feasted on the "Crown of Almudena".

When “El Abuelo" had to reinvent itself, it decided to serve wine with a prawn tapa. We wondered if that wouldn't be too expensive. But Daniel Waldenburg explained: “My grandfather waited until the end of the day to go to the Legazpi market when he could buy the leftover prawns at a very good price.
