Valencia and Seville, Spain,
July 26 -28, 2004
Pros: The most beautiful castles and paradors (old arabic
fortresses), nice Malaga beaches.
Well up until now we have been on the straight and narrow, but here
is the real deal. In the midst of the 51 degree weather *we don't
want you to be too jealous, so we'll throw in the heat factor*...there
have been some pretty funny things going on...
1. The Spanish herb lady. Let me explain. All over Spain there are
little ladies who try to shove rosemary your way and make you pay
for it after you have accepted it. Well, we put up with it for pretty
long, and after about the billionth rosemary lady, came the 'amanda
surprise'. Essentially, Amanda let out a high pitch sound, somewhat
like a cross between a tae chi and tae bow cry and proceeded to
pursue karate moves towards the rosemary lady, making strange sounds...it
was by far the funniest thing ever. The rosemary lady was quite
amused and yelled OLE with all of her might!!!!
2. OK, although we are not ever going to sleep in the same bed,
if we were, AMANDA WOULD WANT TO TELL A STORY. Hypothetically, it
would go something like this....Matt is destined to be a fighter.
In his sleep he often turns over and wrestles, hitting Amanda in
the eye or cheek. Well, the third night, Amanda had enough and 'in
her sleep' turned over and pushed Matt over to his side of the bed.
3. The truth about Spain...we were on the train and since we couldn't
read our Spanish train tickets, we sat in the wrong seats....well,
when we were asked to move one of us, left our sun glasses in our
original seats..nevertheless, they were gonzo when we came back...

we have just seen what beauty Spain has to offer. its all for sure
situated in the south of Spain, more specifically Seville. The most
beautiful castles and paradors (old arabic fortresses), nice Malaga
beaches, crazy drivers, and 51 degree (yes, that is right) weather.
we tried to think of the best way to describe the weather. We think
its a cross between walking through hell or fire and something like
the feeling one would get from basting themselves in oil after wrapping
themselves in saran wrap and laying in the sun. nevertheless, Spain
is georgous...off to CAMP GRANADA...
We miss you all,
