Editor: Sarah 

I am a South African living in Madrid since 2005. I love this city, its people, its streets and its buzz. Therefore, I created this blog to inform friends and visitors of the city about what it has to offer. The result is Cheap In Madrid, a blog whose 90% content is for free events and activities from free music concerts, free art expositions, free workshops, free theatre, free museum visits, places to learn Spanish or other languages free of charge, cheap places to enjoy tapas and other typical Spanish dishes.

Contributor: Carmen 

Carmen is a Spanish born, American raised Southern California adventuress who has been living in Spain since October 2006. She enjoys teaching English and is a keen traveler and photographer with a passion for Spanish gastronomy and wine. Among her friends she is the PR for fun and free activities in Madrid, hence her resonance with this blog. She is passionate about the city and being completely bilingual her posts shares a part of Madrid not usually found on tourist routes.

Contributor: Christina 

Christina is a California girl living la vida madrileña since 2010. She is a digital communications specialist for the United Nations. She is very active in the lively Madrid expat community, running a popular Facebook group with over 7,500 members. An avid world traveler who has been to nearly 30 countries, Christina has a taste for adventure and is passionate about discovering new and unconventional cuisine. She’s thrilled to see how the Madrid gastronomic scene has evolved and become more global in the last few years, with new ethnic and fusion spots. She loves spicy food and often asks for lo más picante from restaurants, but is often disappointed- and has been known to be seen in public resorting to her own secret stash of hot sauce or red pepper from her purse. One of the things she loves most about Madrid is that there’s always something exciting going on (even bordering on overwhelming at times). She also loves how easy it is to get around town (no more congested LA freeways!) and the numerous charming daytrip destinations nearby. Follow her on Twitter @exanimotina

  1. Hola! he leído el artículo de Robin “Hidden Gems in Madrid” y me preguntaba si podría darnos más pistas de donde está ubicado el bar de Lavapies, de los mojitos de amor, del que habla.

    Muchas gracias y buen blog!:)

    The “reggae” bar in Lavapiés, where the bartender hailing from Guinea-Bissau makes the best and cheapest “mojitos de amor.”

    1. Hola Melisa! El que escribió ese artículo era realmente yo, Oliver. Pero, independientemente, gracias por tus elogios! La última vez que fui al bar de reggae, me dijeron una noticia lamentable: que la titularidad cambió y mi barman favorito no estaba allí. Sin embargo, se me informó de que iba a regresar! De cualquier manera, los mojitos de amor todavía se sirven allí, aunque no está hecho con el amor de aquel barman. Está en la esquina de Calle de la Fe y Zurita.
