Just prior to a recent visit to Madrid, my mother-in-law, having visited there a few months previously, advised us on "a beautiful little Spanish restaurant, with music and flamenco as part of the floor show", for dinner. Not being averse to a little culture, I asked her where in Madrid it was, only to be met with the response "about a 10 minute walk from the hotel where we stayed". I asked where her hotel was and was, and got "oh it was quite central, all of the main sights were in walking distance, I can't remember the name of it though". I think that this has to rate as the sh1ttest set of directions, given by one human being to another, in the history of travel. Anyone think they can beat it?
