ah valencia!

First impressions are not always accurate. My first impression of Valencia was that of impossible traffic and congested streets. But that was until Will and I found our way to the beaches of Valencia, which stretch wide and as far as the eye can see.

On the Playa Levante, one discovers the abuela of paella restaurants, the Casa Pepin. It is the first of many restaurants that line the beach front. It is the most popular of all the restaurant. First, an appetizer of calamari or mussels, or both, then, a beautifully prepared pan of paella for two. This is the restaurant of Ernest Hemingway. It is a treat for the eye and the mouth.
