... today.

Took a chance to chill a bit, the back appreciating the rest. Elaine related the story of the dorky tourist in the Pyrennees who fell to her death and was stripped clean by vultures within the hour. Too bad the Beast did not volunteer for the good of humanity.

population data. Alarcon now has around 150 residents, down from over 1,000 in
