indeed good news about preticketing barcelona. one never knows when someone like my beloved proserpina will discover en route a good shoe store, and we all know that shoes are far more important than just another damned church or museum. it is true that the styles in the low end stores are far more appealing outside the states. nine pair in greece, none more than Eu 30-35 and some as cheap as 10. Wears them all the time.

not happy with the treaty. congress will reject it, but there are not enough votes to override b hossain obama's guarenteed veto.

Thanks for your answer to 'What to see?'. Great idea. I'm fairly new to VT and didn't think of that.

Thanks for stopping by! You're right, each trip can be memorable in its own way :o)

    Sometimes I wonder what some people get out of travel, it seems that when they return home the only memories they have are of the lousy waiter service, the cheap hotel or the missed train...Your trips, as ours, even when there are negatives (and there sometimes are), the positives so far outweigh them that you can laugh and enjoy the negatives also. Enjoy your travels always.

Martin, your wife seems to be very different than my husband's wife. My children wanted to give me a surprise 60th birthday party (18 years ago). Zohar, my husband, told me, because he knows I don't like surprises, and we planned it together. Only one guessed that I wasn't surprised, and she admitted it years later.

    Shalom Rachel, yes "your husband's wife", is quite different from Zohara apparently, she has loved every surprise I have given her for more than 35 years...or maybe she is just being kind to me ^O^
