La Semana de fin

We saved the dog.

Let me set the scene. My friends and I planned to go to an escape room here in Madrid. Pretty cool right or so I thought until I actually got to the place. I was the first to arrive and boy oh boy the street look sketchy and deserted. It was 11:45 and no businesses were open on the street. Finally, my friends came along and come to find out we got the time wrong. Our adventure wasn’t going to start until 12:30. 

Finally, it was time to be locked in the room. We had an hour to make it out the room. The mission was to retrieve documents and a dog from a mad scientist who wanted to create robotic dogs. My group made it out with 10 minutes to spare. It was a lot of fun but a lot of pressure at the same time. A group can not be larger than 5 people. There were 4 of us in the room and having to rely on different people to help you along the way can be tough. 

Afterwards we went to lunch at Montaditos. This place is famous for little sandwiches and cheap drinks. Pretty much any type of pub food can be ordered here from wings to fries to hot dogs to burgers to sandwiches to beer to wine to hard liquor. 

The last thing on the agenda for Saturday was to go to Alcalá de Henares for a wine festival. Alcalá is one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites and is only 35km north east of Madrid. 

The group minus one

I sure do love a good pistachio and chocolate flavored ice cream.

It’s such a quaint little town with the oldest university in Spain. The town square is absolutely breathtaking and I can just imagine what it would look like with the flowers are in full bloom. I actually enjoyed the wine festival and was able to find a few wines that I actually liked. 

Now for the exciting part the clue for this week. This country has the second largest mosque in the world. What country am I?
