Arrival in Spain

We arrived safely in Valencia this afternoon and explored a little of the old city before coming back to the apartment to nap and freshen up for dinner.  I started my research and was surprised to learn that the Valencia orange was actually developed in California.  I guess I 'll have to wait until I return home to continue my project.  At least I will have more time to concentrate on tapas, paella, and my cousin Zach's wedding.

In the meantime, I sat next to this guy on the airplane
His name is Eric Adams and he is the lead singer of a heavy metal band called Manowar. He has had a very interesting career and he was a lot of fun to talk to. We will just miss his concert in Barcelona but my mom is anxious to see him when he comes to Chicago this fall.
