On a frigid winter night, a man wearing two coats shuffles into a brightly lit brick restaurant in downtown Madrid. Staff greet him warmly; he’s been here many times. The maître d’ stamps his ID card, and the hungry man selects a table with a red tablecloth, under a big brass chandelier.

The man, Luis Gallardo, is homeless — and so are all the diners, every night, at the city’s Robin Hood restaurant. Its mission is to charge the rich and feed the poor. Paying customers at breakfast and lunch foot the bill for the restaurant to serve dinner to homeless people, free of charge.

It’s become Spain’s most sought-after lunch reservation. The restaurant has poached staff from luxury hotels. Celebrity chefs are lining up to cook once a week. For paying clients, the lunch is fully booked through the end of March.

The restaurant opened in early December, and is run by an 80-year-old Catholic priest, Ángel García Rodriguez, whom everyone knows simply as “Padre Ángel.”

I have one embarassing storie of Spain! When Portugal fell under spanish rule during the iberian union, there was one place in the portuguese empire that stayed under portuguese rule. In Terceira island, in Açores, when the spanish arrived at the beach, the locals launched bulls against the invasors, ano returned to the ships. That location was then called Praia da Vitória, which translates to beach of victory.

Headcanon Spain picks Romano up when they kiss and stands on his tippy toes so he can pretend Romano’s the taller one. When Romano asks about this, Spain simply says something really sappy (”I want to lift you to the heavens where you belong, amor!”) and Romano buries his face in Spain’s chest.
