Digging the pig

In Madrid we had wonderful roast suckling pig at Botin, the world's oldest restaurant. Hemingway's characters eat the same thing in the same place at the end of The Sun Also Rises. It's the kind of thing you do in foreign capitals that you would never do in your own.

  1. Umm, which bit of the pig was it, exactly? In the words of Edmund Blackadder's straitlaced aunt, it looks like a thingy...

  2. That is making me feel hungry... Silvana and I went to Madrid for our second anniversary and much of the time was spent consuming pork products. How bad can a country be when one of it's most popular cafe chains is called Museum Of Ham?
