I'm Spanish and my husband is English. Some time ago we used to meet up with other expats in Manzanares el Real, every week for a drink and some tapas. Perfect time for English, Americans, Spanish...etc to meet, practice English and Spanish and relax. The group sort of got dissolved and I know my husband misses meeting up with expats and being able to speak in English to someone other than me :-p We live in Moralzarzal and would love to meet up with other expats around the area and create a group for drinks, tapas, bike rides..... I know there are lots of groups in Madrid, but it becomes difficult to go to the centre every time, that's one we would love to hear from any expats around la sierra!!
