When I was a girl, I wanted to be Nancy Drew. I think I still have it in me.
So Marido and I went on vacation to Spain this winter and we were in Madrid and we were hungry and we wanted to eat at the fabulous little mom and pop place where we had oxtail several years ago but we couldn’t remember what it was called.
We were googling things like, “mom and pop oxtail madrid” to no avail. Nothing that popped up looked familiar.
Then I remembered.
I had taken photos the last time we ate there and posted them on facebook because I am all about the food on facebook. I have taken two selfies – one where I am wearing sunglasses and a hat and another of my shadow. I am not a fan of selfies. I don’t like it when other people take my photo. I sure don’t want to do it myself.
Anyhow. I searched my posts from a few years ago. We had been there over Christmas break.
I found the photo.
We did an image search with it.
We found a similar image.
That image was tagged with a location. Not with a name, but with a location.
We checked the map.
It was near where we thought it had been
We started walking.
We found it.
Taberna Juan Blanco.
And it was delicious.
Maybe this should become my new career? Finding places? And things? Would people pay me, do you think?
