I'm from the States and will be heading out to Madrid and Sevilla on 26/5/07. I don't want to make a fool of myself..so I must ask..what's the proper way to "Tapiar"? When we walk into a restaurant, will it be self explanatory or will we look like deer in headlights and not know what to do??? I speak Spanish, so I doubt the language will be too much of a barrier. Although our Spanish is not the same, I'm sure we'll be ok. I do have to say I will be staying away from the "orejas." Any bit of advice would help. We are also spending the day in Toledo. Any restaurant recommendations? Also, I know Sangria is the total tourist thing to order, so I won't be ordering that. What's a good typical Spanish drink? Thanks!
