Odds & Ends….and More!

Back in Madrid for 2 nights and there are a few more things to share…..First, the cave houses, not the one we stayed in, but a small town where there are many. One can see the chimneys sticking up from the hills and know that there is a home with a stucco front under it. Here is the town of Fonelas.

We have mentioned “Menú of the Day” often. Here is an example with 5 choices per course…..often there is only a choice of 2 or 3.

Spain is an easy country to visit; roads are good and well marked, accommodations are excellent and a real bargain….at least during the months of May and October (our last 2 trips here). We only spent 4 nights out of 30 in hotels; the rest were in beautiful apartments for less than the Holiday Inn Express in San Antonio. For example:
