Going away party / gay pride Madrid

After amazing french toast burgers at Chris's on Friday night, we headed to our friend Andy's goodbye party (he returns to Germany in a week).

His apartment is in Chueca, Madrid's gay district, which was perfect because this weekend is the annual LGBT pride festival in Madrid. Going to Madrid's gay pride parade in 2010 was so fun, I knew being in Chueca would be a great atmosphere on Friday night.

The going away party got changed last minute from Andy's apartment to a botellón in a small plaza right outside his front door.  A block away were live bands and huge crowds, but our botellón was mostly just Andy's friends.

During his time here, Andy has played frisbee with both of the teams in Madrid (Quijotes & Dulcineas and Diskatus), so there were lots of people from both teams in attendance.

It was also one of my last nights out with Hannah for a while, as early Sunday morning she flies to Spain's island of Mallorca where she'll be teaching sailing in an English camp all month.

I didn't stay out too late (home by 3.30), as I had to be up by a decent hour on Saturday for the Photo Scavenger Hunt that Mary and I had put together for our friends.
