Mercamadrid field trip.

Here´s something I´ve signed up for, rather rashly. A visit to Mercamadrid, the huge wholesalers´market, the biggest in Europe, or so they say.
I´m very excited now, but have the feeling that at 5:45 am, on the day, I´ll wondering just what I was thinking of.
Maybe we´ll run into world famous chefs arguing over the price of red tuna. Maybe not. I bet it will be fun, and I bet I´ll enjoy my breakfast, once I´m back.
If anyone is in the ´hood and wants to come along, here are the details.

I suspect that probably I don't have enough money for this!

Where food is concerned, I buy all kinds of odds and ends that rarely get used - a compulsion I must try and relax!

I love food markets even if I can't buy anything. Still, I don't know if I could make the early wake up call! Have fun and tell us all about it!
