Amber waves of grain…

So they are green still rather than Amber yet, but the wheat fields do have waves in them as the wind rolls over them on these ┬ábeautiful hills. It is like watching waves in water… The wheat fields surround the many vineyards here in the Rioja region of Spain. Rioja wines are a favorite of many. I was told they are easy to find…even at Trader Joes. I am in. Red or “tinto” here.

did I mention that I am eating my way through Spain? It has been one week and many are tightening their belts but not me… Octopus tapas and now this decadent churros con chocolate! Like strips of elephant ears dipped in a cup of thick warm dark chocolate that you then drink. It is heavenly…

walking through the vineyards is so beautiful… Like walking through Sonoma…

dorm sleepong is getting easier. Last night I had an ill Asian 75 year old coughing beneath me…I felt sorry for him. Earplugs and a gifted eye mask aid me as I seem to end up on the bed with streetlights coming in…

the people and the connections are fun and growing…we are all in it together. There is comfort in that…

logronos spain last night out eating tapas, chocolate, Rioja wine celebrating week one as one of us was going home to Denmark as he was only doing week one…so fun. Living.

love to you all …
