a little more vitoria color...








I´ve been living on lists lately... so why mess up a good thing...

1. Philadelphia- I´m off to "mi pueblo" (Spanish joke) for a few weeks and won´t be around. I´ll be posting some Philly snaps on Flickr. That´s the plan anyway...
2. Corner View- The lovely Dana will be hosting Corner View while I´m gone. Thanks again Dana!
3. Bagels- My first meal when getting home is a sesame bagel with cream cheese, tomato, and white fish salad... What´s "white fish salad"? One of those things that is so delicious, but better off not knowing what it is exactly...
4. 5:00 am- When I get up because of the time difference. The best time to catch up with back issues of Architectual Digest, W Magazine, and Rowan Knitting Magazine (don´t laugh at me Vanessa!). Just realized that these three magazines basically sum up my stepmother. Yes, she´s pretty cool!
5. Mochachino- My coffee of choice.
6. Barnes and Noble- Where you can find me camped out in the cookbook section.
7. Pentax K7- Playing with my new camera. Sorry to all you NFN (Nutty for Nikon) people, but I´m sticking with my Pentax... Hey someone has to...
8. Thank you- (Don´t say it nearly enough.) Thank you for all your (funny, kind, generous, inspiring, inquisitive- to name a few) comments and emails. As JGY eloquently put it - you are a group of "beautiful spirits." And I couldn´t agree more!
9. I´ll miss you!
10. ¡Dos besos muy gordos!

P.S. I´m thinking of getting The Coco a little lifting around the mouth... What do you think?

We'll miss you, I'll miss you. I hope you'll have a good trip home and fun time with family. We'll see you soon.

Hasta la vista, senorita Jane, buena suerte :)

la ninja said...

great shots, as usual. I could have sworn the first one was s/where in Northern Europe. Vitoria! who'd had thought.

have a fab time and eat lots of steak sandwiches (local grub there, right?) "bocata bistec" :)
(could you actually take some pictures of those? bocata bistec shots?)

rinomata said...

Have a nice time Jane !!! Besos !

Crescent Moon said...

You have a great eye for finding colorful things to photograph. Have a wonderful trip!
As for Coco, a little sag gives character.

nathalie et cetera said...

Enjoy your trip! I am looking forward to see what you bring back from home...

Christy said...

I think you're hysterical! About the dog's mouth comment!

Have so much fun! And who knows, maybe we'll run into each other here in Philly!

jgy said...

One for my list--while you are away, I will go to starbucks and have a mochachino (spelling?!) and think of you in Philly enjoying a bagel with whitefish!
Very happy travels to you, beautiful spirit^^

Ritva said...

enjoy! and come back soon<3

ps. Coco looks a lot like me.

Allison said...

Oh Jane... you had my mouth watering at bagel. Even though Germany is what I affectionately call the "land of bread and potatoes"... they have not figured out the divine perfection that is a bagel. If I thought they would still be fresh, I would have my folks bring over a whole suitcase in the spring. Philly... I bet they make a really mean bagel. Enjoy!

Cabrizette said...

Dorte said...

nice pics, really! have a good time overthere

malo said...

Oh, I will miss you too (so very much) and impatiently waiting for a report.
I think a lifted Coco would be quite appropriate for halloween but maybe slightly off season for the rest of the year. She is gorgeous!

sealaura said...

espero que te diviertas! love these shots. of course the blue is calling me. very pretty.

Catalina said...

Hola Jane:
Soy Catalina. Me ha dicho mi tía Ana que eres de Filadelfia y que tienes un perro que se llama Coco y que me lo vas a dejar pasear. ¿Coco muerde niñas?.
Espero que te lo pases muy bien en tu pueblo.
Un beso,
Catalina

Have a great time, Jane!

Have you looked at Architectural Digest magazine Nov. issue? I created a 60th street map for them which is in the issue!

We'll miss you... oxox

Beautiful pics, interesting blog. I've also lived in Spain (Asturias) for many years, but I dont call France my "home" any more... though i enjoy going back there for holidays. My partner is english and doesn't miss his country either... Bye!
