If you are in Spain, check out the tapas bars when you get hungry; they are open late (Spaniards often eat at 10 PM or later!) and they serve up tasty bite-size morsels for a low price. Some places keep a running menu on the wall or bar itself, and after sauntering up like a local tapas joint you simply belt out what you want in your perfectly accented Castillian Español. Minutes later you are eating delicious treats made of ham (a specialty in Madrid), cheese, bread or vegetables.
