While we wait for Season 2 of Elite to drop, Netflix has been satisfying our thirst via the teen drama's Instagram account, posting hypnotizing videos of the cast dancing to "Drake's God's Plan" and "Rihanna's Rude Boy" on set.
The latest of these thirst traps came in the form of a photoshoot starring our favorite Elite couple -- Ander and Omar. You know how the story goes: Preppy guy meets less preppy guy on a bridge to buy some weed. He then agrees to meet a stranger on Grindr, who, surprise surprise, turns out to be the guy who sold him the weed.
It is on that same bridge, the Valmayor Reservoir in Madrid, Spain, where actors Arón Piper and Omar Ayuso (who play Ander and Omar) met recently to reminisce about the birth of 'Omander,' the ship name given to the couple. And, well, we are crying a little inside.
See below for photos of Omar and Arón exploring the landscape that's brought us some of Elite's most tender scenes.
