What you'll do

First, we will tell you about the African life in two of the most multicultural neighborhoods of Madrid. Namely Lavapies and Embajadores. Lavapies is a place with lots of stores and restaurants of Africans, Arabs, Asians, and South-Americans. In Embajadores street art adorns the streets alongside the infamous Tabacalera. Secondly, did someone just say you would like to try divine, mouth-watering African food? :) Then this experience surely is the place to start exploring. Of course, we have our favorite places which we'd love to share with you! We will bring you to a restaurant where you can enjoy the surprising variety of West African food. Next, we will also visit some African​ shops that further illustrate glimpses of the African​ life. Lastly, we will walk, talk, eat, maybe munch some more, drink (of course/claro que si), walk, talk some more, enjoy our time together, and sadly say goodbye :( We truly believe that we will give you a valuable experience from the point of view of an African immigrant and an ex-Erasmus student of African Diaspora. ​A mix of cultures with the same roots.

Sylvain And Anna

We created this experience to share our love for Madrid and our African heritage. We love the vibrant way of living of the Madrileños (inhabitants of Madrid). Madrileños enjoy life like no other. They eat, drink, are open to all people, party, and celebrate culture. Sylvain, born in Cameroon Africa, resides for more than 17 years in Spain. Anna, born and living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, studied for a semester in Madrid. As a couple of African descent, we'd love to give others a snapshot of the life we enjoy immensely. A life filled with food and social celebrations.
