New Find: El Corte Ingles

How do I begin to explain what El Corte Ingles is?? Well let's see, if Super Walmart, Macy's on 5th Ave in NYC, and Ikea decided to join forces, the collaboration would be-El Corte Ingles. This store has four floors and each floor has a side A and B. That's EIGHT sections. I'm a bit ashamed to say but on my first pilgrimage to this store,  my friend and I spend almost three hours on only two floors. But fortunately, we found out that they have a section that sells Desigual, an amazing Spanish clothing brand(I'll have to do an entire blog post about them later). We both chose coats and boots that we plan on buying after we get our first paycheck in three weeks(seems like forever, living on a string...).

Back to El Corte Ingles. They have a grocery store, many different clothing sections, a beauty section, a huge candy kiosk(where I accidentally ate a pork rind, lol! I thought it might have been a fried piece of pulpo-octopus), an electronics section, an appliance section, and SHOE section(where they had an ENTIRE wall of Camper brand shoes: made in Mallorca, Spain-I have several pairs at home). OH! and the grocery store had a bar in it! Fortunately, they had a veggie food section, but the fake meat, tofu choices looked inedible. Ok, I'm officially done. I only took one picture. I was too mesmerized by the entire experience...

Fuel to keep you going during your looooong shopping venture...
