Subject: Home from Spain
Sara and I are back from our two-week trip to Spain and it was fantastic. Visited Barcelona, Costa Brava, Collioure, Languedoc-Roussillon, Carcassone, Arieges, Andorra (skied a day at Ordino-Arcalis under exceptional conditions), Aragon, Navarre, Hondarribia &Guipuzkoa, Bilbao &Bizkaia, and Madrid. We took an overnight train from Bilbao to Madrid with a private compartment; felt safe and secure with the only annoyance being the porter's cigar smoke.

Our one regret is that we were unable to meet up with Albert during our three days in Barcelona. That is a wonderful city you live in Albert. We'll definitely be back.

On the other hand we had the great pleasure of spending an evening with Covadonga in Bilbao. Truly one of the highlights of the trip. This woman's warmth and energy are without equal. If you ever have the opportunity to meet her do not pass it up. Thanks Cova for a wonderful time. Now, if we can only coax you out to San Diego.

Our film has been sent off for processing so within a week I'll be posting some photos on the Travelzine website. Also, our travelogue installments will begin shortly.

Thanks again to all you Ziners who helped make this a fantastic trip. John in San Diego
