Madrid, Spain “Tres, Dos, Uno, Bailamos!”

Today was Spain. We got a massive crowd to turn out and dance, largely because of Remo, the guy on the left, and his CPI site.

The man mobilized about half of Madrid. Melissa and I strolled into the Plaza Mayor on a Saturday afternoon and could feel a static charge for a few seconds before we were identified. Aroundhalf the people there were standing around scoping for a guy who looks like me. The sign-up process took over an hour. We’re going to have to leave more time for that when there’s a high turn-out.

I’m not going to blog in detail. If I tell myself I need to do that, I know I’ll never get around to posting at all. Still got Iceland, England, Ireland, and Portugal to catch up on.

We’re moving very fast.

The map should be accurate again on Monday.

    I had a really great day, Matt, you did such a great job and the dancing shots(spoiler: Braveheart’s shot will be remembered a long time!!) and the afterhours having that great evening in the bar and then the ending having a look to the “Palacio de Oriente” and then leaving you two at the subway´s station.
    Have a really good trip around Europe, Matt!!

    Hola, soy chilena vivo en Valparaíso (V Región del País)… Por casualidad vi tus videos… Me parece que eres una persona feliz, y eso es lo que más me gustó…

    Felicitaciones por hacer lo que te gusta, disfrutar la vida y compartir esos momentos -sencillos y profundos al mismo tiempo – con los demás…

    Me senti como los niños de Rwuanda al verte, sin saber bien el por qué, dan ganas de compartir esa felicidad y bailar contigo… SI; LA VIDA ES HERMOSA…Que sigan tus bailes conquistando el mundo…

    Matt, ты отличный парень, и это отличный проект. То что ты делаешь, очень важно для многих людей. Спасибо тебе за это огромное. Я сам немного путешественник, но до тебя мне ещё путешествовать и путешествовать. Просматривая твои видео, я помечаю себе те страны, в которых я бы хотел побывать. К сожалению, в россии, дела с визами обстоят несколько сложнее чем в США, но я думаю, что трудности в итоге, только подсластят путешествия. Я видел в одном из видео, ты был в Москве и проехал по Trans Siberia Железной дороге надеюсь, что тебе понравилось. Предлагаю тебе посетить в следующий раз, культурную столицу нашей страны Sankt Petersbyrg. Ну и конечно буду рад личной встрече с тобою.

    P/S Надеюсь мы обязательно встретимся.

    Matt, you the excellent guy, also is the excellent project. That you do that, it is very important for many people. Thanks you for this huge. I a few traveller, but up to you to me still to travel and travel. Looking through your videos, I mark to myself those countries which I would like to visit. Unfortunately, in Russia, business with visas are a little bit more difficultly than in the USA, but I think, that difficulties as a result, only will sweeten travel. I saw in one of video, you were in Moscow and have driven on Trans Siberia to the Railway I hope, that it was pleasant to you. I suggest you to visit next time, cultural capital of our country Sankt Petersbyrg. Well also I shall be certainly glad to personal meeting with you.

    P/S Hope we necessarily we shall meet.

    Hi matt! i Really think that what youre doing is very cool man!!! I wanna ask you a question! Im spanish, and i live in madrid and ive got some friends that would dance with you including myself jaja! can you tell when are you passing by madrid and where please! thanks!!!!

  36. Perejaume

    Matt, you are invited in Catalonia, for example in barcelona and Girona.
    Catalonia is not spain !!

  37. George

    Congratulations Matt. Oh and by the way Perejaume, Catalonia is part of the Kingdom of Spain last time I checked. Your comment violates what Matt is trying to do. Which is to unite people not segregate them.
    Cheers.
