Remembering Madrid's Chocolateria San Gines

Did you say chocolate and churros? That's right! If I'd eat this right now, I'd probably not taste the savory sweetness of the chocolate since I've lost my taste buds due to chemo, but it's certainly sweet to remember how the chocolate dipped churros tasted one morning in the city of Madrid.

Kepi and I walked from our hotel to the Chocolateria San Gines. It was a good 30 minute walk. When we got there which was about 9 AM, there was already a long line of locals and tourists eager to taste the shop's specialty. We could smell the whiff of freshly made churros and the warm, sweet, thick chocolate permeating the air.
