In Which We Begin a Sunny Holiday

Hola y bienvenidos a Robertito es su Tio.

So I've got a snapshot of our ocean view, but I don't feel like unpacking camera cables just yet. Maybe I'll wait until the sunset. Or maybe I'll wait until the beach festival tonight when we're either watching tonight's fireworks with the throngs down on the beach or up here on the terrace.

Despite the lack of photographic evidence, I can tell you the sun is shining, there's a warm breeze coming off the sea, we had one of the easiest journeys ever getting over here this morning (despite having a 7am flight), the kitchen's been stocked, and I've already picked up a twinge of color. Pasty faux-English complexion, be gone!

Life is good, y'all.

Oh, four down, three to go. It's gonna be all about Isabel Allende, magic realism and The House of Spirits this week.

That and half-naked (at the least) Spaniards frolicking on the beach and in the local bars. Mmm, half-naked Spaniards who drink.

Yes, life is very good, y'all.
