Shout Out to the Amazing Kids at Meadowbrook

So happy to hear from you all. I will try to answer your questions. I don’t think I can bring an octopus back for you to try, I have not seen any in the grocery stores here. However, there is another delicacy I think I can bring back that comes in a jar.

These are baby eels. It would be interesting to try. If they didn’t taste very good, we could cover them with Ragú spaghetti sauce and put add a little Parmesan. What do you think??

It is very hot here this week. Full sun and 80-90 degrees. I have a water reservoir called a Camelbak in my backpack. It holds 2 liters of water but it adds 4-lbs to my backpack. There is a tube that comes around to the front so I can drink water whenever I want. I usually drink at least 2-4 liters per day.


The blue tubes we are wearing are connected to our water supply.

They do not celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Spain. That’s a Mexican celebration of their victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

They do not serve very much corn here. Usually corn is found in salads. We have had  potatoes and they are usually very good.

Now here is an interesting thing they served for dessert after we had Octopus — it is cheese with quince jam.


The cheese is a soft cheese and you put it on bread then you slice off some quince jam. It was very good.


Time to get back on the road again. Hope you all have a good summer!

Adios amigos!
