One of the best things about my job is that I never really know what’s going to happen when I meet my guests for the first time and we head off to our first tapas bar. Yesterday was a prime example of this when we ran into graffiti artist Alexandra del Bene, who was jazzing up the shutters at Bodeguita Romero when we arrrived. Then she ended up joining us for a couple of tapitas and some wine (Alex is in pink), saying it was too hot to keep working outside. As you can see, she totally charmed my guests.
Later we ran into someone with a young eagle on her arm, who offered to let us hold it for photos. A bit scammy, but also fun. Then we happened upon my artist friend Norberto on his way home with his portable printing press, and finally we saw The Dude! Rather a full day. And a typical day in my life too.
