What is it about a secret that’s so attractive, so irresistible? Secrets are only secrets because they’re secret… forbidden knowledge. We all know that if something is forbidden we will want it even more.
Take a look at Adam and Eve for example. Both man and woman decide to eat the only forbidden fruit in a paradise full of many other delicious fruits. “She made me do it!” Adam explains to God (which isn’t true, but you know… men). So they got banished from the Garden of Eden and ended up in our horrible world. So I guess it’s in our genetics to want something that we can’t have.
I’ll let you in on a secret if you swear not to tell anyone! I discovered an oasis in our horrible world, which comes close to Adam and Eve’s paradise. And the best thing about this place is that none of the food is forbidden. In fact, it’s encouraged to eat it all. In the rooftop terrace of a small accessory store, amongst the hustle and bustle of Madrid’s city center, you will find a hidden gem. If you want to escape the busy streets and find some peace, go to this secret cafe/bar. It is a little expensive, but it’s a small price to pay for a piece of paradise.
I swear you will want to try this one just like Adam and Eve had to eat that stupid piece of fruit.
