España



I know several people have requested pictures from my trip to Spain. Here are a choice few. Above is what you will find in a typical tapas bar- this is yummy Serrano ham (jamón), sangría and the ubiquitous olives.




The above place is very beautiful, and the workmanship that went into creating it is stunning, but the circumstances surrounding its creation make it a difficult place to visit. It is called El Valle de los Caídos, or the Valley of the Fallen. It was built during Franco's reign, basically from slave labor. What you see in the photo is the entrance to a massive cathedral built into the side of the mountain. It's physically larger than St. Peter's in Rome, but there is some kind of no-no about any church being larger than St. Peter's, so the actual sanctuary doesn't technically start until like 50 feet in or something. Unfortunately, we were not able to enter because we were there on the feast of Corpus Christi and they were having a procession.




Ferdinand and Isabella's view from their castle in Segovia.



This is what I was doing while all of my friends were at the Wilco concert. Notice how light it is. It's 9:30 at night. Here, we are at the Bobadilla train station, about a half hour from Granada. We boarded an overnight train to Barcelona- we arrived at about 8:30 or 9 the next morning.



Walking down Las Ramblas- a beautiful boulevard where you can buy anything you could ever want, including live birds and chinchillas.

Your pictures bring back memories of my trip to Spain. I took my daughter, s Spanish minor, when she graduated college. It was fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

I know very little of Spain, but I can see touches of Italy there. I've only been to Madrid and Barcelona, and that was in the 70's, but it is a lovely country indeed.

Great pictures. I was in Barcelona last summer. Where are the freaky "statue people" in the Las Ramblas photo?
