In Madrid

Having fled Barcelona only minutes before the return of newly crowned European champions FC Barcelona (a sight that this Madridista could not bear) we arrived in Madrid about 3 hours ago. I have eaten a large plate of patatas bravas. Life is good.

Spain/Portugal 2009 Book

For those who need more than one copy, or those who never got one, we've made the Volume 1 of the Spain/Portgual Travel Book available on

Volume two, which will include students' drawings, photos, collages, etc., will be available after the trip ends.

Begin the begin.

Choosing a suitcase is a difficult business. The backpack is, of course, a classic, with or without decoy Canadian flag patch.  The typical wheelie isn't bad either. 

We leave tomorrow. I have not yet chosen a suitcase. 

This is where we start. Updates to follow as possible.
