(18 Miles Out) He is an alcoholic. He drank heavily at the local bar every night until Maggie was born, and then he quit cold turkey.

2023.06.07 11:02 Mamagirl1990 Am I the asshole for cutting my mom off
So I’m going to try and make this as short as I can. Me and my mom used to be thick as thieves until she met my stepdad which is now her ex husband (still my stepdad though he’s a great man) and idk if she just got older and did a whole 360 or I got older too and just started realizing how much I don’t like her as a person. I’m 33 she is 54 soon to be 55, and she irks every ounce of my existence. She is narcissistic selfish dramatic past obsessed she lies and twists things tickle her fancy and NEVER takes blame..she is also extremely intrusive. My husband and I have a son now who is 19 months old. She always claimed she wanted to be a grandma but the times when we are speaking she hardly ever asks about him..doesn’t buy him anything (which isn’t really important it’s the principle) when she does stop By it’s always and I mean ALWAYS either before any of us are awake or RIGHT when I’m getting him down for a nap. Hell she beats the damn door down like the feds finding the biggest drug dealer ever. Then she stays for 5-10 mins long enough to take forced pics with my child so she looks like a real grandma on Facebook 🤦♀️ she’s always in a hurry or some bullshit. She never even calls to see if she can come over or if we have something else going on and I’m a big fan of at least a text ahead of time..but God forbid we not be home or have company then it’s “oh I see you or you keep him away from me” she doesn’t work she has like a thrift store and my Sons other grandma who is extremely involved btw my mom always acts like she’s in competition with her because she owns a well known restaurant in our area and she does A lot for my Son. She doesn’t offer to help me do anything like babysit or help me clean when she says my house is “filthy” and she’s always got something negative to say or has something to blame me For like being close with my nana who is her mom and she always tries to tell me Things she supposedly said About me trying to get us against each other. Mother’s Day I spent all day with every little dime I had made from a yard Sale which wasn’t much to try and find her the best present and get some Pics of my son printed for her as well and it took forever and I wanted one on canvas for my mother in law they then come up and tell me they have to redo that one. Btw we had been sick the previous week and so I did a yard sale the Saturday before from 7-4 and I was too tired to go shopping afterwards so I went when we got done seeing my MIL who was at work. My mom is very big on gifts and is hard to please with them so I really wanted to find something great well I got home about 6pm and she refused to see me I took my Son to her house anyway we banged on doors and windows my phone was dying so I sat on her porch charging it trying to call her she never answered my calls texts or the door and I broke down crying because I wasted my own Mother’s Day trying to make hers special and didn’t even get to spend much time with my own kid. So am I the asshole for ceasing contact with her after that? Oh also she posted my newborn son on Facebook Right after he was born and we hadn’t even decided to do so yet, she never asked and then told her friends and my family I didn’t want anything to do With him because I was on a lot of pain meds and felt so messed up after my c section so the nurse asked if I wanted her to take him to the nursery so I could rest an hour or 2. Mind you I had held My child before this happened.There’s so much more I could write and I have so many texts of her narcissistic behavior but this is long enough lol now She’s trying to get me to apologize and I’m so just confused and exhausted by her.

2023.06.07 10:41 lavender-aesthete Any recommendations/ tips for solo traveling?
Hi! I’m a 23F from the Bay Area, solo traveling to Portland in the beginning of August for the first time! Any recommendations for visiting Portland like restaurants (Non/Vegetarian friendly), museums, hikes, coffee shops, etc would be greatly appreciated! Also, I really want to make use of public transportation instead of spending so much on Uber so I’ll take any advice/ tips on how to use it like a local (The place I’m staying at is 5 blocks from the yellow line MAX stop).
A few questions I have:
-What’s the weather like? (beginning of August)
-What’s the process like for the MAX light rail? Is there a card I need to request before arriving on the website or can I pay via Apple Pay at the station?
-Is Downtown Portland big on clubbing?
-Are there any areas to avoid? Dangerous/ sketchy for young women to be by themselves

2023.06.07 10:35 MisterSpicy Recommendations on meeting people when traveling for work
Just wanting some examples if you were in my position and wanting to socialize. Im 35, dude, I work for a hotel company. I travel across the country to assist different properties and usually at a particular place at least 2-4 weeks or more. And I will go awhile before going back home. Last time I was home was the first week of April. Since then I have been in St. Louis, Atlanta, Montreal, now I am going to Scranton, PA tomorrow for a few weeks.
Anywho, it would be nice to meet some new people or something casual. But for whatever reason, my self confidence is in the gutter when it comes to this stuff and I am unable to go out and meet people comfortably. Which is a contrast from my work - I manage hotels, talk to staff, executives, give meetings, meet tons of guests without much issue I think.
But I don't know how to loosen up and be myself and comfortable to reach out to people outside of work. At least if I was at home I might have a few friends to hang out with or they can do all the talking lol. But on my own it is much more intimidating.
Any suggestions to loosen up and break out of my shell a bit?

2023.06.07 10:12 Moonshine_Queen_392 Close to giving up on dating
I am a functioning single adult, as in I am able to do my own thing. I have good female friends, who have their own lives and are struggling in their own ways. While I am not unhappy single, every now and then I will daydream about having a partner, a friend more than anything, who will want to form a deeper connection with me and add to my life in a positive way. However, most guys I've dated managed to achieve the complete opposite. From defective communication (aka I haven't replied to your text in 4 days cause I was busy), to hiding kids and an ex, to telling me how to wear my hair while him being unable to cut his cracked toenail for an entire month and getting upset when I mentioned it, I just don't want to be bothered with men. Not to mention the constant obsessing over unwanted pregnancies and ridiculous grooming standards which have nothing to do with personal hygiene that do not apply to them. Dating apps are a shit show full of travel and adrenaline junkies, wine connoisseurs and fancy-restaurant people I can't keep up with (what the hell do these people do for a living?). My last chat was with a guy who told me that he does not give a crap about the way he looks because he is too above superficial things like physical appearance, which is the opposite messed up side of the spectrum.
Long story short, are there any decent guys left and if so, where do you find them? Is anyone in a relationship with a man actually happy? I am open to meeting someone nice, but I am not gonna ruin my peace of mind for some smug dude who will shit on me the first moment he can and also I am sooo sick of trying.

2023.06.07 10:01 eggsbaconandmore Terminus Inn
PREVIOUS - THE NIGHTBUS
We were able to spend the night in the closest hotel, a dinky little inn that had a very disinterested hostess. She just gave us a key and waved us upstairs. Doesn’t money mean anything to them? All of us were too tired to argue, though, so we crawled into bed and fell asleep.
I woke up with the sun shining in my face. I sighed with relief. Okay, maybe it was all a bad dream? Did I have a weird trip from something some asshole put in my drink? When I pulled out my phone, I noticed with a lurch it was 11:59, but I calmed myself down. Noon, then. I hadn’t put my phone on 24-hour time but 12-hour. It was right before noon. I fished my charger out of my handbag (never leave without it!) and looked out the window.
Our room overlooked the town square. It had a memorial, a statue of some explorer - complete with coonskin cap - that stared out into the distance. The clock tower was across from us, still stuck at 11:59, but at least it seems the chiming had been given a rest. I couldn't see the bus terminal, as it was behind the clock tower, but I could see the edge of town from here - we were in a small valley with steep hills all around us, coated in pine trees.
I sighed and scrolled on my phone. I still couldn't see why I had wifi while the others didn't. The network was called TERMINUS - the same name as on the sign on the bus terminal - and it was free to connect to. I could scroll through news sites and wikipedia, but when I tried to message other friends, the messages didn't go through. I could only assume they couldn't send me anything either.
Caroline and the others slowly stirred awake. "Ugh, meggs, what's goin on..."
I turned around. "We're in... Terminus, I guess." I tried looking it up on google maps, but didn't get any results.
"So far from home... What do they have for breakfast?"
I shrugged, smiling. "We'll have to see. You up for getting up?/"
"No... my head..."
I nodded and waited for the boys to wake up as well. All three had a hangover, but Collin's and Caroline's were truly massive. Charlie was fit enough to get out of bed and get ready to explore the inn, at least. I kept the key of the door with me and told both of them to stay inside - not that they were going anywhere.
The hallways of the inn were bland. It wasn't big - one hallway on each floor with about five or six doors and a staircase on one end. The wallpaper was probably supposed to be a calming vanilla with a daisy motif, but it just ended up looking old and yellowed. The doors were exactly the same cream color save for the silver number on the door. Ours was 25 - second floor, fifth room. I noticed it also had a chip near the lock.
Charlie and I made our way to the staircase. The uncomfortable silence was only broken by our creaking footsteps over the carpeted floor.
I chuckled awkwardly. "Last night was... something, huh?"
Creaky steps. "How are you holding up? I know you didn't sign up for this... I mean, none of us did."
"What are you talking about? We just took the wrong bus and ended up in the wrong town. I'm sure we can catch a different bus at the bus terminal and go home."
I nodded. "Y-yeah..." My smile felt a little forced, even for me. "Yeah! You're right."
It was quiet the rest of the way down. I didn't mean to sound so insincere.
"There sure are a lot of stairs." Charlie joked. "We were only on the second floor, right?"
"Yeah, we should be-"
We landed on the ground floor. Before us were two doors - both the same bland vanilla as the room's doors.
"Which way to the reception?"
"Er..." I hadn't actually paid attention when we got up, as I was herding three tired drunk people up to a room. Not that I'm naturally good at directions, either. "Let's try the right door."
Behind the door on the right was another hallway with three more doors. Charlie blinked. "This makes no sense. This door-" he pointed to the door on his immediate left "-would just lead us to the hallway to the left door." He opened the door, but when he stepped through, he was in an empty room, lit by a single lightbulb. The same inoffensive vanilla wallpaper lined this room.
He quietly closed the door. "Where the fuck are we."
I didn't answer. I know I must have looked ridiculous, my mouth just open and closing like a fish. I mean, come on, this is physically impossible! "Maybe it's an optical illusion or something? The room looks bigger than it really is because... it's empty, or the light, or..."
"Right." Charlie didn't seem convinced. "Let's keep going straight, then. This building can't go on forever." He walked down the hallway to the last door. I meekly followed him through the door. This time the room had another two doors, and to the left, a staircase leading up.
I blinked. "Are we... back to where we started?"
Charlie yelled in frustration and barreled down the rightmost door. After a little bit, I heard running footsteps coming up behind me, and with a slam, he opened that door. "What the FUCK! I WENT in a STRAIGHT LINE!" He started kicking the walls while swearing, damaging the daisies on the wallpaper.
I chuckled quietly in disbelief. "Ha. This makes me think of Portal. Or Stanley's Parable."
Charlie stopped kicking. "What?"
"Y-yeah! In Stanley's Parable, you're a character in a story narrated by The Narrator. You can - you can choose to go along with him or go against him, but he can also go against you. It's - it's about the illusion of choice."
Charlie still didn't understand. "I don't - I'm not a game nerd. You make no sense."
"We don't... have a choice. Not really. This place will not give us one. So we have to let this place pick for us."
I fished through my pockets. I came across a coin - it wasn't there in my pocket before, but I didn't question it. "Heads for left, tails for right."
It landed on tails. I reached out for the rightmost door, and we both went through.
We stood in the restaurant-part of the inn. Breakfast was still laid out, but no-one else was there. No-one else was eating. I went towards the lady behind the counter. "Hey, uh, we'd... we'd like to pay for our rooms. And breakfast."
The lady stared at us as if we were crazy. "What are ya talkin' about? You already paid."

2023.06.07 09:42 roastypeppers My boyfriend doesn’t bring me around his coworkers.
My boyfriend (24M) has never invited me (26F) to any events his friends have.
My Boyfriend and I have been dating 9 months and have been friends for a long time before that. We have a good group of friends but whenever his work friends get together, he’s never invited me.
One of our close friends and him work together as bartenders at a late night restaurant and said friend has invited me before to birthdays or trivia nights with their coworkers, alongside all their coworkers with significant others inviting them to come along.
I invite my boyfriend to my coworker birthdays or events but I have yet to receive the invite from him himself and not our friend.
He recently told me he will be attending one of his coworkers(female) birthdays at the restaurant which caused me to ask why he doesn’t invite me to things. I’ve met her before and we follow one another on instagram so it’s not like she is a stranger to me… He said he didn’t ask me to come because I won’t know anyone there and because he is going with two of his male coworkers so it would be weird if he brought his significant other since they don’t have one.
I don’t want to be invited to a guys night ever but this isn’t one of those nights.
I explained to him it made me feel like he didn’t want me at any of the past things our friend invited us to since its never been him extending the invite. I told him I felt like a secret and that I didn’t even want to go, I just was hurt he never asked me if I would like to. He didn’t agree with my thoughts and said his friends wouldn’t like if he was hanging around his girlfriend the whole night since he said he would go with them… We have never been the clingy hang off each other type at any hangout we’ve gone to so I don’t understand his argument.
Am I wrong thinking it was strange he was acting this way? Is it fair of me to feel sad about him not inviting me?
TL;DR my boyfriend doesn’t invite me to hang out with his friends and he didn’t acknowledge it upset me.

2023.06.07 09:19 kwang_ja Specific light/slice of life dramas without the added flair?
I'm a bit fixated on a certain type of drama at the moment and I'm starting to lose hope finding a new one with these specifics lol. I'm looking for very light dramas or slice-of-life ones without
mean/evil characters, tragic backstory/trauma, mystery killer subplots! Some examples of this include:
- One Day Off
- Would You Like a Cup of Coffee?
- I Haven't Done My Best Yet
- Gaduri Restaurant (actually had a mean character but it was only in 1 ep)
- Desperate Mr. X
- Recipe For Farewell
For comparison, these are some dramas that I think might be suggested but have elements that aren't
what I'm looking for:
- When the Weather is Fine - sad backstory and trauma, annoying friend from the past
- When the Camellia Blooms - murder subplot
- Summer Strike - murdedeath subplots, past trauma
- Hometown Cha Cha Cha - past trauma
- Dear My Room - mean "friend" from the past
- Fanletter Please - past trauma
- Diary of a Prosecutor - mean boss
- My Mister - tragic FL backstory
- My Liberation Notes - literally about the frustrations of the mundane life haha
Please don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all these dramas I listed! I'm just trying to be specific about what I'm currently
looking for hehe.
Also, I don't have an MDL but here's a list I made if anybody's actually willing to look: https://i.redd.it/6un2zkclqj4b1.png
Hopefully there's a gem I haven't watched. Thank you!

2023.06.07 09:11 GamelyTowers AITA For telling my friend confronting another friend isn’t cool at prom?
So for context my friend Ethan (M) had been a close friend for over a year and we have been pretty chill with each other except for a couple arguments we have had a while ago (4+ months). I have been friends with Randy (M) for around 3 years, and no one else knew him in the group we went to prom with except for his date and my girlfriend. I’m not as close to Randy as I was with Ethan. Randy’s date is a mutual friend to me and Ethan. Ethan is a very dramatic and opinionated person he won the Most Dramatic Award at our school’s theatre awards (it wasn’t for acting).
To get to the point at the restaurant we went to, which Randy found out the day of and didn’t have time to prepare, it took a while to get our food and he made comments jokingly about getting a waiter to come. When it was time to pay I believe Randy only had $50 but I don’t know for certain his food and his date’s ended up costing around 30 something dollars and he tipped 5 leaving with at the highest $15 for the rest of the night. Randy is also the type of guy to make slightly misogynistic jokes that he doesn’t mean in the way a straight dude would act “zesty”.
At the prom venue, we were all outside and Randy’s date asked if he could go get her some water and he said no cause we’re not dating. I know that sounds bad but he was just joking, but his date got up to go get anyways. Then Ethan fully went off on him for how he treated the waiter (not tipping him enough), misogynistic jokes, and how he treated his date. This was fully in the middle of prom and he decided to put himself in the middle of situation he knows nothing about.
About 20 minutes after hanging with Randy and basically telling him, “Hey man I’m sorry about that. He just doesn’t know you and how you and your date interact” and him going like “Yeah, no, I get it.” I went up to Ethan and go like “Hey man I don’t think it was a good idea to confront Randy like that,” and he said “Thank you,” dismissively. I say, “Yeah, it should have just came from his date if she had a problem with it.” He goes “thank you,” again.
After that situation prom was ruined for me and my girlfriend (she was on my side) and Ethan has been ignoring me ever sense which caused our whole friend group to close off me and my girlfriend. I talked with Randy’s date the Monday after prom and she didn’t understand why Ethan did that either and acknowledged that, that is just how they act to each other. She has also been ignored by Ethan but not to the same degree.
I lost a whole friend group over this stupid drama and was just wondering if I was in the wrong. Or should I say am I the asshole. Ha ha wink wink. Okay I’m done.

17 Standards Years Ago
She recalled the day when her brother was gone for good. Little Sorella was 6 years old. She and her brother, Dearthair, 12 were on their own in Kail.
Kail was Coruscant's smaller twin, on the grassland planet Miero. The town had stone adobes of shops and homes, everyone full of giddy and glow. Out to the south laid Neero, a spaceport settlement. On the occasion, some folk traveled to Neero to obtain exotic goods to sell back in Kail.
Despite the hearty prosperity of Kail, Sorella, and Dearthair were orphans. They hid in their ruined home, once full of glee and joy, now faded, cracked, and sloppy. Clothes, pots, pans, holograms, and drawers with emptiness now occupied the home.
Their parents ventured to Neero, trusting Dearthair to take care of the place while they were gone.
Later that day, an investigator visited the home to confirm that their parents, had died while protecting a kid from being taken away by traffickers.
With no parents, they were brought to the next town, Grangor. Yet, both knew, they couldn't stay there. The foster center was a heap, a dump. The caregiver didn't care about the kids trashing the place, she just wanted her money from the adoption fee to bid and brag about how she won another bet on Odupiendo racing. The children there began to form groups, making turfs and destroying each other's territory.
Not to mention, the possibility of separation. Their chances were even higher considering families of Grangor could only afford for 2 children to raise. They knew if either one of them left, they would no longer be the family they once knew before.
So by the next day, Sorella and Dearthair escaped and stayed in Kail. All it became was their next worst nightmare. The town had been ransacked by raiders. The community now had to use its funds to restore what was lost. And that meant raising prices and trips to Neero to resell exotic goods for better deals.
Despite this, they went back to their home and pondered about the food they would eat and how they could keep the place up.
At first, they begged for a bit. And when begging didn't work, one would pickpocket the distracted fool. They used any credit they acquired to quiet the rumbles in their stomachs.
Dearthair even began to ask for jobs around town but no one wanted to hire them. Not enough money to pay, one vendor noted. Had they not used the funds, there would've been a chance.
However, sometimes, if the shipments they received or the abundance of the crop were good, a few of the family friends they knew would stop by and give the siblings food. One of them, Kli, a Zeltron, tried her best to visit often, cleaning their home and cooked meals. She told them she would have offered her place but unfortunately, due to audits visiting, she did not want to risk them being taken back to foster care. (After all, for her, it was hard to lie. She hated telling a lie).
The siblings didn't mind, they appreciated the help.
They did eventually stop pickpocketing aside Dearthair who had gotten better at it. He promised to stop but he figured a few credits wouldn't hurt.
He was almost caught once at the same time as the day Sorella last saw him.
Dearthair was eyeing around a restaurant, searching for a clumsy idiot. There were a few visitors from other worlds here, whining and belching their sorrows away about some rumored war. This prompted Dearthair to steal without worry. Who would even notice? Even the bartenders would be too busy to give these drunks their drinks and people chatted about their life at tables.
As he passed by a few patrons, talk fumbled into the air. "Did you hear?" a Rodian stammered. "They're taking the children....just come in and start shooting..."
"What is the New Republic going to do about it? Nothing!" a Twi'lek snapped.
"I've heard that they use certain techniques....they don't remember who they were," an elderly man huffed.
Dearthair grumbled. None of these clients seemed to be carrying a huge sum of credits. Most looked down on their luck. Then there was...
He spotted a drunken human fool, slamming his credits on the counter. The human had on shiny boots with a blaster at his side, and gold linings on his coat toppled with a furry vest. "Moar!" he yelped. "Dang tenders....can't even affurd a proper dr...visit Kail they said, the best place to hide and..."
Dearthair slithered by the human's side, eyeing the gold before his eyes. He glimpsed around the room, checking for onlookers one last night in case anyone had the idea to look.
He stopped as he felt the human turn to him. "Hey kid...cun you tell sumone to hurry it up? I hit the jackpot today!"
"Oh, did you?" Dearthair said, raising his eyebrows.
"Sure did," the human burped. "Got me a hefty bounty and now I lay here low. I heard this place was the besst. It's gone to crap. You all this money for nothing....you might as well just take off to another place....they say a storm's brewing....so run if you an..."
"Really, huh?" Dearthair continued, now secretly roaming his hand in the human's coat pockets, scrambling for credits.
"Kid, listen to me, HIC-UP, you're better off on your own if I were you." The human sneezed and tossed his credits on the counter to the bartender. "Yo tender, gimme another one of those bluey thingies. The watchmacallit with the special."
"That's unfortunate," Dearthair hummed, now counting how many credits he had in his hand before shoving it in his pocket.
The human swirled around in his seat, causing Dearthair to flinch. He froze, terrified that he was caught. The human hadn't seen it but the way his eyes stared at the boy...it was like he knew.
He proved to be wrong as he sighed. "Kid, I know I...HI-CUP...may look like a fool but...never turn your back down on an offer. Look around...no one's coming to help you. The town got ransacked by raiders and do you get? Nothing. You have to use everything on your own to 'fix' your problems. Yet if it was Neero, oh, for sure, let's make it all pretty and shiny for the tourists. And yet they stop the imports because of the darn fear of theft."
"Well, everyone helps when they can," Dearthiar noted. "A little bit of help can go a long way."
"Yeah, but to be a man...you have to learn to be on your own. You wanna be someone's babysitter fine. They admire you more though...when you can show you can stand on your own two feet. That's what everyone wants. So guess what...if this upcoming war starts and the New Republic ain't doing a lick of Bantha dong to help....then my allegiance is to those who offer me a place."
The human glanced at his new drink sitting quietly, took one long chug, and laid his head on the counter to sleep.
Dearthair breathed in and out, full of relief. The other customers were still busy with their worries. Digging in for a few more credits, he booked out of the restaurant, heading back home.
He knocked on the door and sounded the bell, alerting Sorella he was there. She led him in and they counted the credits.
"1,000 credits," Dearthair noted. "Enough for 2 loaves of bread, some pieces of fruit, blue milk, porridge from Kali's and maybe we'll have enough to buy The Last Starfighter." He nodded to the holoprojector they had propped by the window along with a few holograms.
"Can't wait to watch that one, I heard from Yue it was a good show," Sorella said.
They went out to buy the items and returned home happily. Yet, Dearthair's mind did not venture off from the human's words. Even when watching The Last Starfighter, he kept thinking back to that old kook's speech. Were they truly doomed to be there?
Well, he knew the guy was drunk but still...his words held some truth.
Kail was surely picking its place back up but time proved other areas were now suffering. Neero was barely getting any more exotic goods, causing another economic shift, leaving Kail to sell only what they produced around them. And last of Grangor, pfff, who knows. And with words about war, kidnappings, and no one helping....it made Dearthair wonder how he could escape this.
He stared at Sorella, intentively interested in the hologram. She had become a bit of a handful now. Kli wasn't around as much considering she was preparing her shop for inspection. Sorella once had almost set the house on fire by trying to cook some food. Or that other time when she tried to take some strange "candy" from an alien, he had to swipe her away.
He was the one who had to take charge, making sure they had food, she wasn't going anywhere she shouldn't be, keep aware of who was at the door, and how to pickpocket....come to think of it, he surely could've survived by himself. Still, he knew Sorella was all that was left of the family he knew.
His parents...they would be so proud of him, doing all he could to provide for himself and his sister. Yet, there was only so much he could do now.
"Hey, Sorella?" he asked as the hologram ended, the hero fading in the blue light. "Do you ever think about...getting away from here?"
Sorella thought for a bit. "I don't know...I mean...I like it here. It can be rebuilt. We just need to get more money."
Dearthair felt his heart clenched. "Well, what if you had to get away from here....and go anywhere else?"
"Well, yeah, I would go but then I go back over here," Sorella beamed.
"What is it that you love about it here?"
"Well, how it used to be. Remember when Kli would give us those Oprair cakes, Ronen with the Swirly Tumblers, Jei let us play with the Pikies. This...is home to me. I can't imagine leaving it." Sorella's eyes glistened with tears. "And Mom...Dad..."
Dearthair swung his head. He circuited his eyes back to Sorella only, seeing her stare into space, more tears plundering down.
He felt guilty seeing her eyes like that. It would eat him up next, reminding him about his parents. It reminded him though what a baby she was...she could never keep her emotions in check. She was always so sensitive when it came to things that bothered her, like when he told her to be careful about cooking.
"Are we going to go away?"
Sorella's eyes were now on Dearthair, awaiting an answer.
Dearthair shook his head. "The only one coming and going is me," he said, patting her head. "You're staying here."
Sorella laughed. She yawned and got up, heading towards her room. "Goodnight, Dearthair," she said. "Thanks for always looking out for me, brother."
Dearthair smiled. "Of course," he said, his eyes averted away. "Anything to keep family together."
She didn't remember the exact time, but it happened at the darkest hour of the night. Sorella woke up to hearing screams, and loud wails booming through the atmosphere.
Then came the smoke. She sniffed the air, a wisp of charcoal and harsh heat filling her lungs. She coughed a little before getting up, wondering if maybe it was Dearthair this time trying to cook (he had his moments too).
Instead of the glare from the windows, she saw bright gleams of blazes erupting around the other homes.
"What?" she gasped, checking around and seeing the chaos unfold before her eyes.
A few of the homes were destroyed, either eaten alive by the pulsing inferno or shattered apart.
People were running everywhere, bellows echoing and confusion amassing.
What the hell was going on?
"Dearthair! Kail's on fire!" Sorella yelled, running to her brother's room. She went inside to see he wasn't there. "Dearthair?"
The house shook wildly. Sorella stumbled to keep her balance. She ducked under a table, stayed for a few minutes, and then bolted out to the door again, to peek.
She now saw one of the sources of the chaos. Before her eyes was a white armored abomination, its hideous nightmarish visor scanning around for its next victim. Behind its body, it held a giant tank and in its hands, a huge gun with a nozzle. The abomination aimed the nozzle at a home and enraptured its flames from the gun. It engulfed the house in seconds.
Sorella gulped, stepping back inside her home. Danger lurked behind her as she twirled around to see flames were now entering her home.
Sorella shrieked and scampered out.
She took no notice of the abomination known as the Flametrooper, eyeing her running away. "We have one here, near the homes," he noted.
Sorella mindlessly searched around. "Dearhair!" she cried, wondering where he was. She even looked for the adults, any familiar faces but no one stopped, they continue to run without care.
Sorella turned to see a kid like her now snatched up by another abomination. This one had a different visor, its helmets more delicate with design and he carried no tank, just a blaster in his hand. "That's almost all of them!" the second abomination, the Stormtrooper said, carrying the struggling kid away.
Sorella felt a verge of tears and bellows in her body but she knew she had to escape. In times of danger like this taught by Dearthair, she knew she had to run.
She darted past a couple more homes before she then saw one of the Stormtroopers takes notice of her. "Get her!"
She crawled through gaps, between walls, under trenches, anywhere to get away from the horrid monsters.
She never turned around.
Sorella made it safe once she had entered a small hole in a broken-down store, its entrance blocked by the fallen beam supports. The troopers behind her attempted to fight their way in, clashing with the beams. She ran to the back entrance and shut the door, hoping for some reason at least that would stop them.
She turned around to see another nightmare. The Stormtroopers with the kids were heading inside large vehicles. Kids all stuck together, hugging one another and crying. A few bodies laid on the ground. Some folks still fought the troopers, which unfortunately ended in their demise.
"You won't take him away from me!" a mother yelled. She was on the ground the second she jumped at a trooper.
Sorella hid behind a crate, peering from above. She spotted him.
"Dearthair?" she said, seeing a familiar figure. He was guided by two Stormtroopers, heading inside one of the large vehicles.
"No, Dearthair!" Sorella yelled.
She foolishly ran forward, only to be picked up by someone. Kli held her in her arms, rampantly charging towards a land speeder.
"No, my brother!"
"We'll find him," Kli said. "I'm sorry, Sorella, there's nothing we can do. You will die!"
"I don't care, I don't want them to take my brother!".
Sorella's eyes misted. Her vision blurred as she turned from the inferno of homes to the somber kids in vehicles and looked back to the land speeder, a few others joining them. There were the last of parents, shopkeepers, and their children.
"Hit it!" Kli said as she strapped herself and Sorella in.
"No, Dearthair!" Sorella said, turning around.
The pad to the vehicle closed up, sealing the familiar figure's fate.
"No! Turn back! Turn back!" Sorella pleaded. "Mom...Dad...brother!"
No one gave her any recognition as the land speeder surged forward, Kili holding Sorella tightly, trying to calm her.
"We have to tell everyone about this," Kli hollered. Get the New Republic, contact the other planets around us and..."
She never finished her words as a huge blast exploded behind them, sending the vehicle tumbling.
All Sorella remembered from this part was that she was flying in the air for a bit and hit the ground, knocking her to sleep.
Thanks for reading this if you made it to the end! This is my first time writing in a while (I know I probably messed up some stuff) and I'm all about improving at my craft. Critique away every little bit, just help me to know what I can do to improve!

2023.06.07 09:03 Own-Breakfast-4184 How can I help my Lebanese friend?
My friend works in a restaurant 7 days a week and is paid 400usd a month. He signed a 4 year contract as he was desperate. He has a visa.
The restaurant keeps his passport even though he can't flee without an exit visa from his employer.
His dad is now very sick and his brother found him a decent job in Lebanon. He wants to go back home.
The problem is, the restaurant demands 5k usd from him to leave, it's in his contract.
Of course, he can never save 5k with his salary and he doesn't know how to escape.
The restaurant said they will ban him easily if he does manage to escape and he is worried that he will never be able to return and work again with a different company if he is banned.
Does anyone have any advice for him?
I understand getting him the visa costs the restaurant money, but they know he can never save that much and I feel like all business have fees when hiring employees.
In Europe, we have laws about what goes into a contract. So even if someone signs a bad contract with a company, it cannot be enforced if the company put in ridiculous things like a exit payment, this is what slavery was back in the 1700s. Slaves had to buy their freedom.
Is there anything he can do or does he need to stay here and miss his dads final days?

Top 10 things to do in Lisbon ⭐ Sponsored by BEEYOND packing cubes, a revolutionary new way to pack your luggage 🧳 🎒 👉 https://amzn.to/43uwwz0
👈 (on Amazon)
🔥📚 Lisbon PDF Guide 👉 https://amzn.to/43pcwxr
Here are our top 10 picks:
Number 10: Belém Tower The Belem Tower, part of UNESCO World Heritage, is one of the most recognizable tourist attractions in Lisbon. Built in the 16th century, it was considered the gateway to the nation’s capital, strategically located at the mouth of the Tagus River. It was initially built as a fort to protect the city from incoming raids along the river. The tower is also a symbol of Europe’s Age of Discovery, also known as Age of Exploration, a period in the 15th and 16th century where some European nations, including Portugal, began exploring and conquering the world. Did you know that the tower once stood on an island, but the earthquake of 1755 shifted the river’s course, moving the island closer to land? Don’t skip nearby attractions including the statue celebrating the Portuguese Age of Discovery, and Waterfront Promenade Belém with a fantastic view towards the beautiful 25 de Abril bridge
Number 9: Old-style forms of public transportation In the late 18-hundreds and the beginning of 20th century, Lisbon came up with several ingenious transportation solutions to help locals and visitors tackle the city’s steep hills and enjoy its magnificent sights. Trams are a popular way to ger around the city, nowadays especially amongst tourists. These small nostalgic streetcars have been a part of Lisbon’s streets since 1901. Ride the renowned tram number 28 that passes through the old city and other famous parts of Lisbon. By the way, did you know that before 1901 trams ran as a horsecar line, but due to Lisbon’s steep slopes, the horses were eventually replaced by a more efficient cable-driven transport. Funiculars are another fun way to explore Lisbon. Ascensor do Lavra, city’s first funicular, was inaugurated in 1884. There are others, like Elevador da Glória famous for its colorful street art, or Bica funicular that will take you through the picturesque part of the city. Ride the neo-Gothic vertical lift Elevador de Santa Justa connecting downtown and Chiado, or take advantage of the modern ones, like Lift Castelo.
Number 8: Castel of Saint George Castel of Saint George, initially surrounded by a wall to form a citadel, is now an iconic historical complex that played an essential role in the history of Lisbon. The fortification dates back to the 1st century AD and was occupied by different civilizations, however, the area was inhabited long before. The site was eventually conquered from the Moors by the Portuguese military action in the 1147 Siege of Lisbon. In the 13th century, the castle became a fortified residence for the kings. Today, visitors can enjoy a walk-through of castle’s expansive grounds that include the ruins of the royal palace, a permanent exhibition with objects found in the archaeological area, and several platforms with amazing panoramic views of the city and other attractions. Of course, you cannot miss funny and loud peacocks roaming around the castle complex, a sort of unofficial castle permanent residents. Check our Lisbon walking tour to get the real feel of the castle and the entire city. The link is in the description. https://amzn.to/43uwwz0
Number 7: Mercado da Ribeira and other food destinations One does not fully explore Lisbon without tasting the city’s unique cuisine. Mercado da Ribeira is one of Lisbon’s oldest markets and has been around since the 13th century. From the early beginning, the market has undergone several upgrades. The market hall, which features iron interiors and a large oriental dome, was opened in 1882. The area is divided into the traditional market that sells fresh produce and a modern food hall with over 30 stalls and bars serving top-notch Portuguese cuisine as well as food from other parts of the world. In 2014, the Time Out Market, a venture of Time Out magazine, took over the food hall part of Mercado da Ribeira. Don’t skip other markets and food destinations across the city, like the bohemian Lx Factory situated in an old textile factory complex, now full of trendy bars and restaurants, quirky shops, independent art studios and Livraria Ler Devagar — one of the most unique bookstores in the world. Walk around cobblestone streets, sit down in one of many bars or restaurants, and soak up the atmosphere. Explore Alfama and other districts with traditional taverns and restaurants, some even offering live fado, a unique genre of music that originated in Lisbon. Check our travel guide for more suggestions. By the way, our mobile-friendly travel guide covers the top 20 things to do in Lisbon and things to know before you visit, including maps, opening hours, links to buy tickets, itinerary suggestions, and other information. By purchising our travel guide, you are also helping us sustain this channel, so a big thank you for that!
Number 6: Carmo Convent Built in the 14th century, Carmo Convent used to be the largest church in Lisbon. But the Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed the building, along with much of the city. Today, visitors can admire its grand arches and the carvings on the walls that have survived for centuries. A small archeological museum located at the sacristy features archeological finds from Portuguese history, including fountains, tombs, and architectural relics from different styles and areas. The museum also features a 15-minute interactive video projection describing the convent’s history.
Number 5: Lisbon Zoo No matter your age, a trip to the zoo will always be fun and memorable, and especially so at the Lisbon Zoo. The zoo founded in 1884, is the first park with various flora and fauna in the Iberian Peninsula. Today, Lisbon Zoo is home to over 2,000 animals from 300 different species from all over the globe, including dolphins, tigers, reptiles, primates, and other animals. The mission of the zoo is also scientific research, conservation and breeding of endangered species, along with the recreational activities. Embark on a unique adventure and explore the zoo from a different perspective and jump on a fascinating 20-minutes cable car ride.
Number 4: Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology Visit The Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology or MAAT opened in 2016. As the name suggests, it is home to exhibitions in art, architecture, and technology. Its distinct design stands out, with its prominent location on the banks of the River Tagus. The museum’s rooftop offers a fantastic views of the 25 de Abril bridge and the city. Instead of permanent collections, visitors can explore temporary exhibits by contemporary artists, and other creators like architects, both national and international. Don’t skip Tejo Power Station, situated in a former thermoelectric power plant, now a permanent exhibition venue. Lisbon has a long and rich history, and this is reflected in its numerous museums. Check our travel guide for more suggestions.
Number 3: Jerónimos Monastery Construction of this massive monastery and a church for the Order of Saint Jerome began in 1501 but was not completed for another 100 years. Jerónimos Monastery replaced the old church used by monks providing assistance to sailors in transit. The monastery is a prime example of Manueline architectural style from the 16th century. This Portuguese late Gothic style originated in the Portuguese Renaissance and Age of Discoveries. The style incorporates richly decorated maritime elements carved in limestone discovered on expeditions of Vasco da Gama and Pedro Álvares Cabral. Stroll along the two-story cloisters and the Church of Santa Maria, and it will be easy to understand why Jerónimos Monastery is considered a symbol of Portugal’s immense wealth during the Age of Discoveries. The monastery, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also a burial place of King Manuel I, and other prominent figures, like the famous Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. Did you know that the recipe for the world-renowned Portuguese custard tarts known as pastéis de Nata also called pastéis de Belém was created by the monks of Jerónimos Monastery? This video is sponsored by Beeyond, helping you save space when you travel and organize your suitcase. A revolutionary new way to organize your luggage consists of a set of small and large packing cubes. Once you’re done packing, just close both zippers, compress the air out of your packing cubes like this, and voila, your clothes are compressed, and your luggage is organized. We use Beeyond packing cubes on our travels, and they are even designed to fit your carry-on. Visit Beeyond’s Amazon page to get your own compression packing cube set. The link is in the description
Number 2: Oceanário de Lisboa Oceanário de Lisboa is the largest indoor aquarium in Europe, home to over 16,000 marine animals and plants from 450 different species, including sandtiger sharks, cute sea otters, funny penguins, and other fascinating animals. Walk around this unique aquarium and experience four different natural habitats and learn about animal life in their natural environment through information panels. The oceanarium’s main exhibit is a large tank with glass panel windows strategically placed in various aquarium parts, creating a unique visual experience. Oceanário de Lisboa is just one of the famous landmarks located in Parque das Nações, the former site of Expo ’98. While in the Expo district, admire the majestic Vasco da Gama bridge, the longest bridge in Europe, or the beautiful Torre Vasco da Gama. Hop on the cable car to get a nice view of the entire district.
Number 1: Commerce Square Praça do Comércio or Commerce Square, overlooking the Tagus River, served as a transportation and commercial hub, and is now the seat of some of the most important Portuguese state offices. Walk along Cais das Colunas or Ribeira das Naus to enjoy a historic waterfront area. One of the most famous attractions in the square is Arco da Rua Augusta, a stone building commemorating the city’s reconstruction after the earthquake in 1755.
Climb the arch to enjoy spectacular views of the square and the city. The arch entrance reveals Lisbon’s main pedestrian area, Rua Augusta, a bustling street full of shops and restaurants. The nearby Rossio Square has been one of the main squares in Lisbon since the Middle Ages. Sit down in one of many cafes or restaurants, like the historic Café Nicola, and admire traditional Portuguese pavement style “calçada” and the plaza’s baroque fountains and neoclassical architecture. And here is the bonus that we promised. If you have some time left, explore Almada district with Cristo Rei National Sanctuary, a favorite destination for those looking to spend some quiet time with breathtaking views towards the river and the city. If you find it familiar, it’s because it resembles the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro. Thank you for watching. We wish you an amazing trip to Lisbon!
2023.06.07 08:21 EtherSea5329 31 [M4F] Breaking up the monotony of the day
I'm looking for a chill, nsfw buddy / online friend who'd be interested in (a) occasionally watching me touch myself on cam and (b) having random, interesting conversations throughout the day.
If you're interested in (or curious about) the idea of getting your own personal cam shows, hit me up. Happy to exchange photos or jump on a sfw call beforehand as a vibe check. Outside of being on video call too, there's no expectation for you to do/show anything else.
About me: Tall, nerdy Chinito. Dom-leaning, heteroflexible, switch. I work in web development, but lately it's felt like all I do is attend meetings and prepare for meetings. My job is fairly demanding and I'm typically online throughout the day. Safe for work interests include playing sports (tennis, vball, cycling), reading, binging high IMDB-rated series (GoT, Breaking Bad), exploring happy hours and new restaurants, discussing fan theories and hypothetical situations, and daydreaming about my next trip to Japan.
About you: You're independent, chill, well read, and are unafraid of sharing opinions. You're a voyeur (or are curious about it).

2023.06.07 08:21 Pitiful-Studio-1767 How to properly address my manager about not wanting to serve “respected” regulars that constantly tip less then a dollar or write cash and leave nothing at all…
As stated above their is at least two regulars (each only party of 2) that come in at least 2 times a week. I talk to my other fellow servers and we all dread and hate whenever one of us is seated with them. At this point none of us really even try with them as they are both known to be needy and feel entitled because the owner of the restaurant has seen them often & made them feel “welcomed” lol but it has gotten to a point recently where they have written cash on the tickets after ALREADY asking for to go drinks and refills on chips n salsa to take home conveniently right after being cashed out (classic) And then leaving no cash behind or maybe a few Pennies. It’s insulting to all of us at this point and I guess I may not be the best with words without being rude but how would any of you guys address this without insinuating that the regulars are not as friendly as they appear to be and not make me sound like I’m judgy or rude?

2023.06.07 08:14 Quiet-Competition503 AITA for not agreeing to split the bill equally?
Me (21F) and 2 other friends went to a very expensive restaurant. They each ordered food worth $65+ and I got only 1 meal for $20 and had one taste of my friend’s meal. When the bill came, it was about $200 and they demanded we split it equally. I politely said I got only one meal worth $20 but they got mad at me saying I was embarrassing them. Splitting the bill would have meant I paid 3x as much as what I actually spent on food. In this situation WIBTA by refusing to split the bill equally?

2023.06.07 08:07 Mulberry-Careless 7 Members, were hitting them big numbers now XD
| || | submitted by Mulberry-Careless to RestaurantOdyssey [link] [comments]
Thanks all for joining, I really appreciate this little team we've got going here. Some ideas that I've gotten while doing a brainstorm: - auction house (instead of quickselling items when you dont need them anymore, you can put them on a marketplace for cheaper or trade them with friends for ingame currency, recipes, other items)
(you dont just trade ingredients, but recipes, items, cosmetics, currency. You can trade any item you want that you own, besides the staff)
- isometric outside edit
(look at the image below, I want editing the outside of the restaurant to not be that flat stuff from rc, but isometric so you can place trees, car parking, chairs seats, edit drive through, I always wished we could edit our outside restaurant like isometric instead of flat) Just an example, but i think this shouts what im saying for editing outside
- viewing friends on isometric world
(when you add friends, you can see your friends restaurant like above but all on an isometric plain. Including my personal restaurant aswell and other random restaurants. Basically like street view in rc but in isometric platform)
- Boxing arena
(speaking about my restaurant, my game will have a boxing arena this is non negotiable. Meaning like, ill have a boxing ring as an 'entertainment' object, and have a bunch of seats surrounding the ring and kitchen on the side. How funny would that look, when new users log in, view other restaurants, go to the creator of the game's restaurant, and just see a boxing ring, seats, pretty much a boxing arena, and an actual fight night going on. I think that would be hilarious, them expecting a restaurant and seeing a stadium that happens to serve food lol) how funny would this look in a restaurant game XD
(speaking about fight night, the game will be on a schedule basis monday to sunday, and if you have any entertainment objects, youll be able to schedule events on specific days so that more npcs will enter the restaurant on those event days. Good example was fight night, but other entertainment objects could be like a stage for live music, grandpiano performace, rodeo night where people ride a mechanical bull, simpler salsa night, or discount food for specific days, movie night, theater, celebrity appearance, idk im just throwing ideas into the sky but i really like this schedules events idea) - juke box
(my items for jukebox are radio, wall speakers, large speakers, grand piano, smaller piano, electric piano, other stuff that makes music, jukebox. Each item is able to play specific music, like there will be 5 tracks that can always be played at any time, but then each item can play more specific stuff like jukebox has 3 extra tracks, piano has extra tracks, and its rarity based so grand piano or something grander has access to all the possible soundtracks to play. I freaking love whoville by tyler the creator i think that is a banger that i need to somehow recreate) - paying for ingame currency
(what do you all honestly think about this. It speeds up progression of game by buying more currency to quickly establish your restaurant, but i hate micro transactions and am honestly thinking of not adding any. If you all think it'd be okay to pay for in game currency, even though you can slowly earn it up over time as your restaurant makes sales, then I'll consider it maybe. This is purely for time saving so lets say a new item releases on christmas the christmas stove, and its 250k units worth, would it be okay to buy in game currency to get it straight away rather than you wait and earn 250k worth of in game units through restaurant sales? or should i just not allow ingame currency purchase at all and let people work to get these items? I'm completely on the fence with this topic and am leaving it up to you guys to decide.) Floors and balcony
(i want my game to add stairs to platforms, a second floor, or even balconies) What i want you guys to want from this game
(I plan on adding every single theme, every single time, just a seamingly infinite amount of items in this game, that you could decorate with. Mechanical bull, salsa night, these are all themes. I want like, realistically, 800 themes to choose from, with different items for each theme, and an ability to mix and match themes that look similar to enhance the look of your restaurant. You would literally never be able to run out of customisation options for your restaurant, because theres just too many to consider. And maybe when youve designed the best possible looking restaurant with one of your themes, you can spice it up, set up a second layout save like the original rc, and make another restaurant with a completely different theme. A theme that ive been exploring was a medieval tavern restaurant from like the 1400s Where everything is wooden, candles as lights, beers and clothing from the 1400s. Other themes like cowboys, aliens, japanese, fancy black tie, every theme you could possibly want. Give me more themes, please suggest me an infinite amount of themes and im gonna work me and my graphic designer to death to make this the best customisable game possible. What i personally like is the boxing arena theme, where my restaurant looks like a boxing arena and thats it lol. Other themes like gothic, mexican cuisine, 80s, anything you can imagine)
this is all speculatory, just fun ideas to throw out there. Tell me what you think, and if you have any of your own ideas as well please share them, we're really in the earliest stages of development so maybe an idea of yours could actually be core gameplay in the end. Also give me some themes, and tell me your honest opinions of the above points i just said. Also keep a look out, I'm gonna be posting concept designs for the logo of restaurant odyssey.

Number 10: Plaza Mayor Plaza Mayor is one of the most important public spaces in Madrid. The square which once hosted coronations and executions, was first constructed in the 16th century. The square’s name and functions changed several times over the course of history, but it started out as a popular marketplace. Today, Plaza Mayor is famous for outdoor cafes and restaurants, the statue of Philip III on a horse, and the much-anticipated Christmas market.

The city is a melting pot of Spanish cuisine, highlighting the country's diverse food culture. Start your day with a serving of tasty churros dipped in hot chocolate at Chocolatería San Ginés. Spaniards are known for going big for lunch, so huevos rotos, paella or any other typical spanish meal is a great option. Enjoy your lunch or dinner at authentic places, like Casa Toni, and order one of many delicious food options. And finish your day at the most popular food market in Madrid, Mercado de San Miguel, and try delicious appetizers called tapas with a glass of authentic Spanish wine. This century-old food hall is famous for its cast-iron structure and with its ideal and convenient central location, and flavors of every corner of Spain, the Mercado de San Miguel attracts over 10 million visitors annually. Visit also other food markets across Madrid.
Number 8: El Retiro Park El Retiro is a vast green space, home to expensive gardens, beautiful lakes, and numerous historic buildings. Once a royal park designed for King Felipe IV in the 17th century, El Retiro is now a popular public area. Rent a boat at El Retiro Pond, an artificial lake, The magnificent Palacio de Cristal or Glass Palace conservatory, a former greenhouse that now houses art exhibitions. On any given day, the park is filled with people of all ages enjoying the outdoors, including local musicians and performers entertaining the public, especially on weekends.

Number 7: Matadero Madrid Matadero Madrid is a cultural arts center located in a former slaughterhouse and cattle market built between 1911 and 1925. The complex is now home to several contemporary art studios, museums, exhibition areas, and theaters. After its successful renovation in 2006, Matadero Madrid caters to various fields of art interests with numerous programs you can visit, including ongoing art exhibitions in one of many buildings across the complex. We visited a unique immersive experience in Madrid Artes Digitales, exploring the evolution of works of Gustav Klims through virtual reality, exhibition spaces, and an interactive room.

Number 5: Atocha Train Station Madrid's central station, the Atocha Train Station from mid 19th century, is a sight worth visiting, even if you’re not traveling by train. This unique transportation hub is also a gateway to Madrid for travelers to other parts of Spain and Europe. Over a century after it was constructed, Atocha's old train shed was transformed into a luxury hub in 1992 and now includes the Greenhouse Atocha, a botanical garden composed of an extensive collection of tropical plants. The greenery is a great and relaxing sight for the passengers. Did you know that Gustave Eiffel, the leading engineer of the famous Eiffel Tower, collaborated on the renovation project of the train station?
Number 4: Templo de Debod Experience a piece of Egypt right in the heart of Madrid. Templo de Debod is an actual over 2,000-years old temple relocated from Egypt, originally a shrine built to worship the Egyptian god Amun. The temple was a gift of gratitude by the Egyptian government to Spain in 1968, after the UNESCO’s efforts to help save several monuments and archaeological sites from being destroyed while constructing the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River. You can also visit the interiors and admire its hieroglyphics and sculptures. If you don't have time to visit the interiors, also because there is usually a very long line of people waiting to see the temple from the inside, you can still admire it from the outside. It is especially enchanting during the sunset. Surrounded by charming parks and gardens, the site is a local favorite for scenic strolls, picnics, and even yoga.
Number 3: Queen Sofia Arts Center From classical collections to modern installations, Madrids’s Golden Triangle of Art consists of three world-class museums and is considered a mecca of global excellence in art, history, and culture. Visit Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, a museum of 20th-century art opened in 1992. The museum is named after Queen Sofia and is situated close to CaixaForum art center. Queen Sofia Arts Center houses a collection of art from some of the most famous artists in history, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of interactive exhibits, making it an ideal place to spend the afternoon. In addition to the arts center, the museum also houses a library, auditorium, and café.

Number 2: Gran Vía Spain’s vibrant capital is also a renowned shopping destination. Gran Vía is Madrid’s most famous street, also known for its iconic and remarkable architecture. Built between 1910 and 1930, Gran Via was essential to Madrid’s development and modernization. Tagged as the street that never sleeps, the Gran Via also boasts next-level nightlife experiences, driven by luxurious bars, renowned theater productions, high-end street art, world-class designer stores, and enormous shopping malls. You will hardly run out of options in Gran Via, with the numerous stores by popular fashion brands such as Zara, Mango, Primark and high-end boutiques. Besides shopping, visitors can also watch theater and musical shows since the city is also known as the Spanish Broadway.

BTW, did you know that the biggest Zara store in the world is located on Gran Via, right across from Plaza de España.
Number 1: Palacio Real A visit the Palacio Real will take you on a journey through Spain’s royal history. The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official home of the Spanish Royal family. And while the royal family no longer actually lives there, the palace is still used for state ceremonial purposes. The palace, open to the public, comprises over 3,000 rooms, including the Throne Room and the Royal Armoury. Next to the palace is the Neo-Romanesque crypt Catedral de Almudena, the seat of Madrid’s Roman Catholic Archdiocese, consecrated by Pope John Paul II in 1993. Behind Madrid’s grandest church is Parque de Emir Mohamed, the location of the ruins of the Muslim Walls, built in the 9th century during the Muslim occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. Don't miss beautiful Neoclassical Sabatini Garden right next to the palace or an English-style garden - Campo del Moro. And here is the bonus that we promised. Flamenco is Spain's most celebrated dance and music style, commonly performed through rhythmic clapping, feet stamping, and emotional vocals and guitar. So, if you have some time left, visit one of the countless flamenco shows thought the city. Although flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance that originated in the Andalusian region, Madrid became a epicenter for those looking to succeed in this special genre. This unique art form is believed to have developed from intermingling cultres of Andalusian Roma, Sephardic Jews and Moors from southern Spain. There are many other attractions and neighborhoods to discover in Madrid. We wish you a fantastic trip to this amazing metropolis!
