Last week we remembered that there was a contortionism act scheduled in Madrid. Although we didn't have a ticket, we approached the venue and we were told that there were seats available, so we decided to go in. The truth is that we were stunned while watching these artists perform. They moved and they bent over as if they were made of rubber and they seemed very agile. At the end of the spectacle, we were able to take a picture with some of them to remember this moment. It was an unforgettable night.

I'll be right with you...
