75. Saturday Night Live and Chevy Chase always w the Franco references. Yep. I lived in a dorm in Madrid for about 5 weeks. Summer of 1991. post grad program. Great times. I think there were classes too ha ha
Esoterica (host) 1:47:23 PM
good times, bri. i had no money, but ate like a queen.
Brian D 1:48:46 PM
I think SNL went on air just a few weeks before Franco died. Yah when that country was out of his grip it was a big reemergence. Big deal.
Esoterica (host) 1:49:04 PM
i wouldn't recommend rentife third class tickets haha, i could have splurged a little. tok three days to get to granada from Madrid (train going in reverse sometimes), soldiers sleepingin the luggage racks above.
