Weīve been buying food in the markets and eating it in parks a lot lately, which has saved us a ton of dough. We also have the chance to improve our Karma by giving our left overs to bums. As Iīm reading this.. Iīm realizing that I really donīt have any interesting stories from Zaragoza. Donīt let my lack of interesting writing sour you on this fantastic city. If you ever get the chance, go there.. I think youīll like it.
After a few days in Madrid, we headed out into the unknown. As we had a few days to kill before meeting my brother and his family in Barcelona, we picked a town about half way in between. This town was Zaragoza. This just goes to show you that sometimes you just need to throw out the good old LP and do things the old fashioned way. By dumb luck. Zaragoza is a fantastic place. Itīs a city of about a half million people, with a beautiful and easy to navigate old town area. This is a city that isnīt over whelmed with tourists, so we could really enjoy ourselves with out being bombared with tour requests etc. I could live in Zaragoza with out any hesitancy. Itīs clean, small enough that you can walk around without problems, and just has an over all good vibe. About the only negative that I can think of is that Kelly and I slept in a room that was hotter than the fire of Hades. We would wake of five or six times a night just to go down the hall and wet down our heads and tee shirts, then lay in front of the fan so we could sleep. They donīt seem to be huge proponets of AC here in Spain, which baffles me somewhat, as itīs a million degrees in most places.
