    • I wonder how long it took to line them up for display? There must have been hundreds, perfectly placed. I love the color red in nature.

  4. As I stayed in universities who rented us rooms to stay in, provided traditional college meals, big bowls, sharing bread and eating salads, soups, and the Spanish stew, spicy and delicious with three meats. . . I think if it has fish included, it is “paella.” ๐Ÿ™‚
    We had dinners in a “Grotto” and hotels, and local restaurants.
