After the soccer game in Barcelona, we began our journey homeward. First was the drive back to Madrid. Our final tapas run happened somewhere along that road, but it was a perfect representation of tapas all over the country. From first thing in the morning until last thing at night, there were plates of food set out all over the city. You order a little of this and a little of that, along with your beverage of choice. For the Spaniards, it seemed like the beverage of choice was quite often an espresso. They had incredibly complex looking espresso machines all over the country and my friend, Ruth, said that the coffee was fantastic over there.
It was a wonderful trip and I am so thankful that my mother and I got to explore the country. Thanks to all of you for joining us on the journey!
