Volando voy, Volando vengo

Eric and I just got back from a 10 day tour of Spain where we visited Madrid, Cordoba, Granada, Sevilla, Tarifa and even made it across the Straight of Gibralter to the African continent to visit Tangier, Morocco. Highlights include:
* Buying a bunch of great crap I don't need in Europe's largest flea market, El Rastro, in Madrid
* Watching locals dance the flamenco with reckless abandon in Sevilla, Granada and Tarifa
* Visiting the Alhambra at night with only a few other tourists in whispering voices
* Seeing the sun set on the Alhambra from Saint Nicolas' viewpoint on another mountain (okay, hill) with some spirited impromptu flamenco guitar
* Two words: Arab Bath
* Visiting the Roman temple turned Christian church turned Muslim mosque turned Catholic cathedral - La Mezquita
* Standing 10 feet from Picasso's "Guernica," Velazquez's "Las Meninas," Goya's "Third of May" and Hieronymus Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights," among others
* Riding a camel in Tangier, even if only for a minute
* Other stuff
