Today we are scheduled to leave bustling Bilbao in our rental car and head for our next destination in the Spanish Rioja wine region. Before we picked up our car, Charlene had to visit a flea market at the neighborhood plaza near our hotel. She's never met a flea market she didn't like.

... the right foot and apply Voltaren gel on he ball of the foot and while that's drying I put band aids on the two toes next to the big toe, and apply Compeed on any hot spots. I the put on my sock and stuff hikers wool over the two toes with band aids, my little toe, the outside of my foot and the top of the foot. I now get that done in 10 minutes... The other routine I have is Spanish cakes. Whilst every hotel has it's own slant on breakfast ...
