We go to mercadona to buy some wine for our hosts and move our cars so they don't attract some thugs attention during the night. At dinner were served a superb meal accompanied by some wine we bought. Great!
Woke up nice n early had a good spanish brekkie to my standard, jamon serrano, chorizo manchego cheese and olive oil! yum yum! I wait for Jay to wake up. Its just Alvaro the eldest son and David the little 6 year old terrorist who quickly has the whole house on fire with his energy! its funny watching him. Midday i take care of cookin lunch and afterwards we get into some serious phoning all over Spain. It takes hours before anything half-promising and its an arduous task fighting all those red-neck simpletons over phone to simply get some information over skype. We decide to take a break and head of the massive shopping center in Rivas. Didn't buy much really. Back to the house and more phoning up. Just before closing time we get a few promising leads. We call it a day and feel tired as if we spent a day driving..
