STL DPB IN MADRID - JUST HAVING A FEW FRIENDS FOR DINNER

The royal palace in Madrid is a thing to behold. It's bigger than the Chateau de Versailles, albeit without the latter's vast gardens. After the horrors of the Spanish civil war almost 90 years ago, the country is now a constitutional monarchy with a functioning democracy (although the Catalonians and Basques might differ). It maintains a degree of grandeur of which the British would approve.

A big wow! Loved the d├ęcor, but the flower arrangements (probably silk) are incredible too! And I wonder why some people got big chairs and some got short ones.
