An UnBEETable Adventure 10: Golden Oldies, Pets, and other People

I am an avid people watcher. I have an unexplainable fascination with children and the elderly, animals and fashion, weirdos and freaks (like me!).

My sisters find it a bit disconcerting when I ask strangers if I can take their photo (almost as puzzled as the people I ask). Most of the time though, I take the pictures covertlya bit stalker-ish, I'll admit.

Traveling not only gives you a chance to explore a new place, but it shows you that the world is at the same time small and huge, and is filled with so many colorful interesting people.

This post is dedicated to just some of the interesting people I saw on this UnBEETable adventure.


Costumed Couple
I happened upon this couple as Twin took us walking around Madrid. They were just chilling on the square in full traditional costume. No big deal.

The Beets absolutely love animals. Every time we see an animal of almost any kind, we yell out : "Friend!!!"


Rollerblades are so in!
I actually saw this guy rollerblading from a distance and I wanted to try to take his picture right when he crossed in front of usand I did!

Street performer!



I'm telling you, I love Oldies but Goodies!

Relax. Put your feet up.

Meryll the Cat.

Chillin' like gelato.

Lounging in Lederhosen
During the first night in Nerja, we stopped by a bar on the way home to the hotel. I spotted this guy just sitting on a couch in the corner. At first glance I thought he was in Lederhosen, hence, we shall call him Hans.



Balloon Boy

I saw this lady walking around Nerja clearly looking for something. I asked her for a picture, but she was shybut that didn't stop me from snapping a few pics anyway.

Christopher Robin.

Spongebob Squarepants



Charlotte, Carrie, Miranda and Samantha. AKA T3, Beets, Twin and Me.



Tita Mallorcina and Tito Madrileño
Their outfits were too cute that day! I snagged this pic from Momsy. The picture doesn't show it, but they were wearing matching white shoes!

A few old men.

Haxley the Witch Dog. And Pablito.
Haxley, this little charmer's owner explained that Haxley was a name of a witch, or it means witch in another language. Her owner kept repeating that Haxley was a witch-dog. The funny thing is her owner actually looked like a witch. I wish I took her picture...

Beets with a Friend! And a horse.



I tried to snap a picture of this gentleman because his outfit could easily be transplanted on a TDX frat brother.

Cool CoAT

I have saved the best for last. My favorite picture would have to be of this lady from Madrid:

Doesn't she remind you of Cinderella?! I saw her walking down the street and I knew that I just had to take her picture.

I saw a lot of interesting people, but was only able to take pictures of a few of them. It really is refreshing to see new cultures. The Madrileños are so different from Parisians, not to mention Manileños. I love seeing the people living in their citiesthe pace, the fashion, the tastes and styles. I could sit and people-watch anywhere for hours on end. Heck, sometimes I people-watch on the go!

Rest assured that after this Eurotrip series the People Watch and Oldie but Goodie series will continue. =)
