El Desayuno (breakfast) is the smallest meal of the day and usually includes café con leche (espresso with hot milk), pan (toast), or churros.

Spanish love tapas so much. There's a common phrase here: Vamos a tapear! (Let’s go eat tapas!) A few of the most popular tapas are tortilla española (Spanish omelet), patatas bravas (potatoes with spicy brava sauce), and gambas al ajillo (shrimp in garlic sauce).
Another thing about the lunch period in Spain; normally, Spaniards have a 2-3 hour break from work or school in order to eat lunch and take a siesta (nap). During this time, the entire country closes from about 2:00pm to 4:30/5:00pm.
La Merienda (snack) is eaten in the late afternoon/early evening. This snack can be anything since it's really just something to hold the Spaniards over until their dinner later that evening around 9:30PM. It could be a piece of toast, postre (pastry), or jamón serrano (cured ham).

Yesterday we had a tour of the Reina Sofía Museo (Queen Sophia Museum) and today we took a day trip to Segovia, so I owe you recaps of both of those! Stay tuned!
Vale! Bueno, hasta luego! (See you later!)
