Cordoba, Spain

I've been sick these past few days, caught a really bad flu bug. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the the other day when I went inside my airconditioned room after a jog - wet sweaty shirt and all. Or it's just the fluctuating weather. Or I got it from some passengers in the bus or train who sneeze or cough without covering their noses/mouths. Oh well.

Madrid, Spain

Madrid is my second most favorite city next to Granada :-) We walked so much in Madrid I felt like my legs/feet were going to fall off at the end of the day. The weather was colder in the morning but got bearable in the afternoon. I guess the cool weather also made the long walking bearable.

Barcelona en route to Madrid

Spain left me breathless, literally and figuratively. Figuratively as the sights, sound, smell, taste and feel I experienced in Spain were truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Literally because we were left breathless in fear due to our 3 encounters with pickpockets in Barcelona on our 2nd to the last day. Anyway, let me try and set aside that horrible memory and focus on the beauty that Spain has to offer.

First of all, let me just say that you totally have to get hold of these 2 books below if you wish to travel to Spain. These books were very helpful even as far as what bus to take, how many metres away was a particular attraction and some insider information. Rick Steve's book even had walking tours that were totally great! Really, these books were literally our tour guides in Spain!
