I think you live more 'spanishly' than any of us do!
I just want to finish my exams and try to live more like you...just have some time to eat 'tapas' and have a drink with my friends at the terrazas under the sun...
Big kisses, and yes, you're very nice!

Francesca said...

Did you eat the escargot (doesn't it sound so much more edible than 'snails'?)? My garden is full of them, and a friend is trying to convince me that they are a free and healthy substitute for meat ... How do you like them?
