So, as I sit @ the Madrid Airport waiting on my flight, I'm realizing this may be my last time in Spain. I didn't get to see and do everything that I wanted to. Part of me will miss it, but part of me will be glad to say goodbye. In all, I've spent close to two months here, probably longer than the imternship I did in Washington in the 90s, but I may have learned more about myself this time than @ any ...

... A slight detour was required to replace it and we abandoned the idea of a leisurely lunch admiring scenic views in favour of a Big Mac on a garage forecourt. Another first. Back on the road and hot on our heels was an impressive storm that hit shortly after we arrived at the Molino de Alcuneza near SigŁenza for our overnight stay. Off to Bilbao tomorrow in the meantime we are hoping for a slightly better meal than ...
