Three days to go before we depart for Paris, France.
I can't work out all the kinks in my blog, but I can continue to work on it while in Europe. Yesterday, I met a fellow-traveller who just came back from Spain. He warned of pickpockets, but did say he was dressed like a typical American tourist - a perfect target.
He gave me two suggestions on places to stay in San Sebastian and Madrid, which Laura is emailing me today.
