Return to Spain!

You will never guess where Becky was last week, unless you read the title of this post. She was back in Spain! She couldn’t get enough!

In a bizarre quirk of fate worthy of the X-Files, just before we left for our trip she got word that her college was sending her there as their representative to check out study abroad programs.

She went back to Madrid, but also got to see Salamanca, Avila, and Segovia.

While in Salamanca, Spain defeated Russia in the Euro 2008 semifinals and there was much rejoicing. The owner of the tapas bar she was at was painting faces!

Spain, as you well know, went on to defeat Germany in the finals and capture the cup, something it hadn’t done in decades!

She’s now back after visiting The Continent twice in a month. Beebo and I are glad to have her back, even if it means we don’t get to have popcorn for dinner anymore.

    While Spain only won 1-0, they played a much better game than Germany did. Excellent players, Spain. If you’d asked my wife though, all you’d have heard is, “when do they take off their shirts?”

    Oh, that’s why she went back-I assumed she’d forgotten her hat.
