Observations of Spain

It's our final day in Spain. We're finishing up our sightseeing with history & culture at the Picasso museum. Then we learned a very important historical lesson at the chocolate museum (the tickets were actually chocolate bars!) We're now strolling through Citadel Park and feel we need to make a couple of observations...1st, they hate ice in Spain. You are lucky to get 2 cubes in your drink. Drinks are small, there are no refills, and I have been thirsty since we got here. 2nd, they have not discovered pizza cutters. I know we shouldn't be talking about pizza in Spain, but we have had it twice at different places and both times we got a whole pizza and a butter knife and fork. What did they intend for us to do? I'm sure we didn't do it right, but we managed. I think I could have made a fortune if I had brought a couple of rolling pizza cutters! 3rd, We are all developing a great appreciation for the non-smoking rules in California. Second hand European smoke is killing us! And finally, Shawn would like to see a world-wide ban of the Speedo swimsuit for men. Adios.

I really did Laugh Out Loud at your last comment!

LOL Oh, that Shawnie! And I know you'll come home with a greater appreciation for the good ol' USofA. That's a good thing. You've really done a lot in such a short time. Amazing! How wonderful you have the energy to continue. I'm guessing there are many more Speedos to come, however. xoxo
