Colorful Pool

No matter what, you can always trust a swimming pool to add some interesting scenery to your day. This pool was, as you can see, exceptionally colorful.

So festive, this pool.

The Sun!

The Sun!

OK, this isn’t really a giant ball of flaming gas. It’s actually a lamp shade. But doesn’t it look like one of those cool photos of the sun?

Below is an actual image of the sun.

Really the sun.

Wisps of Spanish Memory

I recently returned from a week’s vacation in Spain, and here are some thoughts:

1. iPhone mania is international. I would estimate that iPhones (mostly 4’s) represented 60-70% of the phones I saw in use in Madrid and Valencia.

2. Spain is really pretty. See below.

3. It turned out to be Gay Pride weekend in Madrid. This looked exactly like Gay Pride weekend in San Francisco, but with a Spanish soundtrack.

4. Picasso’s Guernica is amazing. The photo below doesn’t do it justice.

5. Spanish hotel chains have a weak grasp on grammar, as indicated below:

All about whom? You? Me?

6. They eat a lot of ham in Spain. Jamon. Serrano, Iberico, and many other types. It’s all delicious. I want some right now.

7. High speed trains. 200 mph from Madrid to Valencia. Awesome.
