Yes today is Wednesday and we went to the market, for Churros and to SHOP! A simple adventure, we just wanted to show Kate and Chris the Market, we have seen a lot of markets, but never one that shows every part of the body of animals, fruits we have never had, and veggies!

If I should or would be delicate I will tell it this way: you have to always brush your teeth, shave your beard, keep your eyes wide open because if you don't your testicles will be hanging on a hook with your liver and kidneys and anything else you have. SO, if you don't do this your tail will be on the chopping block too! Full heads, full body! Nothing is wasted here, nothing! The only thing we have not seen is udders; there is purpose! In Spain, the animals have better teeth than a lot of people we have seen!

The fruit we tried today for the first time was Chirimoyas, they are heart shaped, dull green, bumpy, but inside they are white, juicy, fleshy (custardy), but full of seeds, hard large seeds, but like a Watermelon, think spitting contests. They are creamy and taste like a combination of banana, pineapple, strawberry, but Chris and I added mango, you do not eat the seeds or skin. Kind of an avocado texture, kind of...if you see one EAT it , very good. Everyone in the market is so helpful in explaining every thing...we somehow get a bit of the dialog and figure out the rest!

While we were shopping the boys walked seven kilometres to a Roman Amphitheatre to see Alcazaba and find another Parador, this is where Kate and Chris took us for lunch; Kate and I did not walk there, they came back to the promenade, picked us up and we drove! We were shocked that they had walked that far! Tony tells me he had a hard time keeping up with Chris! Really, may be the age difference!!!

So now I will tell you about lunch! It was delicious but look at the photos, why do I always take photos of food? Food is on my passion list! I have a big passion list, but that is another story!

We head to home after lunch, we left this morning at 10:30, we ate lunch at 3:00 we arrived home at 6:30 and at 10:15 soup is devoured, comfort, a rehash of the day, cards for some, movies for others and here I am, talk to you tomorrow!

Take care,
