... and density of 4.5 per square kilometer (about 13 per
square mile). That’s similar to farm counties in states like Iowa. I was

Our first stop, of course, was for coffee and a rest room. At random we entered the Meson Serrano. We each had a coffee served in a glass. The interior was rustic. The bar was a thick, highly polished single piece of wood. The bar and the paneling reminded me of knotty ...
