Chocolate, Churros, and Music, Madrid, Spain

Wandering the backstreets, I was struck by the crowd of people at this Chocolateria. First of all, what is a "chocolateria?" And second, why are there so many people in line for service?

I came back later with Amy to try out their offerings. It turns out that the San Gines Chocolateria is an iconic establishment in central Madrid and has been open for the past 120 years, drawing locals and tourists alike to their churros and hot chocolate.

This is basically the only thing on the menu - churros and hot chocolate - served by white-shirted waiters/waitresses.  For about four Euro, you too can enjoy fried dough and dark hot chocolate at one of Madrid's iconic spots. There was a line at midday, late afternoon, and evening - people here love their chocolate and churros!

And always - everywhere - stores - displays - or live - music and musical instruments...........
