We are a couple on the move. Follow and see where and what we are up to; occasionally it is a big adventure, but usually it is the daily, small ones that happen. Read, enjoy, comment. We would love to hear from you.

Spain seems a country that still wants to smoke. Although smoking is only "in homes or on the street", Spain is smoking like crazy. All the larger cities we have visited with the exception of Madrid, i.e. Toledo, Salamanca and now Burgos have the old cobblestone streets running through medieval centers around cathedrals. Today we visited the Burgos Cathedral known to be the tallest one in Spain and all 4 of us enjoyed going. You can see that Jim's feet were a bit tired, but Austin took care of that. It is cooler here. We spent the morning driving through beautiful golden fields with bales of hay already harvested - lots of fields of sunflowers, some cattle grazing, chicken ranching. Can't help thinking about the scenery while driving on CA highways. It is very similar. We are eating lots of fresh breads, cafe con leche, and ordering from el menu del dia. Kathy
