Sniffle, Sniffle

Unfortunately, I woke up this morning battling some sort of sickness (Mom would diagnose this as Creepus bonkus, more commonly known as the "Creeping Bonkus") so the usual energy I have for clever witicisms and hilarious jokes (modest, I know, but I'm sick) is just not in me today.  So as I sit here in my pajamas surrounded by a cloud of dirty tissues, with my hot tea steaming and bubbly effervescent stewing, I wanted to drop a quick hello and post some pictures from my visit to downtown Alicante on Thursday.  I'm still doing very well here in Espana, happy as can be, despite the cotton balls that somehow packed their way into my sinuses, and my little exploratory mission on Thursday really got me excited about many things to see in greater detail in the next 2 1/2 months (yup, I've been here two weeks already).  So take a look at the new pics on the 'Photos' page.  I've tried to provide a little bit of info in the captions but this was one of those "see-everything-possible-as-fast-as-possible-and-come-back-later-for-further-details" trips so I don't really know much about what I saw, other than I'll see it again.  So you see, I only saw what I could see.  See?

Alright, I'm done.  I promise I'll be back to my normal self soon with more retellings of the absurd and uncanny situations I am bound to find myself in, but until then, please enjoy the photos and as always, thanks for reading.



  1. Hope you feel better my love...I'm sure you will enjoy seeing the things from the nude beach in greater detail. And I love you pictures!!!!! Skype soon!!

  2. The pictures are wonderful! There is a webcam that looks at the front of the Ayuntamiento located here:
    From that same website you can look at the webcam over San Juan beach. Hope you feel better soon snooks. Love ya, Mom

  3. Sad to hear you're feeling a bit under the weather-I hope you are back to your adventurous self soon. Until then rest up and take care, have borja bring you endless amounts of vitamin c, echinacea and zinc and enjoy siestas mucho! Miss you :) Luv, Alaina

  4. I hope you feel better soon! You're right in rhythm of everyone up here. It seems like everyone is sick!

    I love the new photos. Santa Cruz is beautiful and that door! Gorgeous! Keep 'em coming!

  5. Thanks for the kind words everyone! I'm drinking lots of fluids and I even found a little powdered chicken and stars soup (my favorite sick food) to make me feel better.

    I'll be posting more pictures from this little adventure with my next post. Thanks for the support!
