On our way to SPAIN 9/18 & 9/19

Hard to imagine we began planning this trip about nine months ago!  It will be a three-week adventure, beginning in Madrid (with a day trip to Toledo), Cordoba, Granada, and Sevilla.

The alarm buzzed at the ungodly hour of 4:00AM on Wednesday September 18th.  Sister-in-law Lois says she can't sleep anyway, but we did have to wake her up for the quick ride to San Diego airport.  (By the way, if you are a thief thinking this might be an opportunity, be aware that Lois has loaded her automatic weapons and is ready to take target practice on any intruders!)

Twenty-one hours after waking, and nine time zone changes later, we got off the airport express bus and saw this landmark:

It's the "Metropolis" building.  No sign of Superman, but we knew that our apartment was just a few blocks away on the narrow Calle Caballero de Gracia.

Looking up Caballero de Gracia.  Notice that Metropolis' dome is visible at the end of the street.

We're on the fourth floor.  Glad there's an elevator!
