1. What a perfect composition, my dear Adsos Letter!

Where did you take this amazing image? It's gorgeous.

And what a great place to take a break.

3. Monumento a Los Martires de la Independencia

This is a monument in Barcelona dedicated to those who died during the Spanish War of Independence (1809).

We just stumbled upon it as we were heading somewhere else. Barcelona is such a beautiful city, full of parks, squares, monuments, etc.

We canít wait to go back. My wife retires in December, and I think it will be one of our first retirement trips.

2. At 105 a break is clearly needed!

But sometimes I feel just like that when on vacation trying to squeeze a lot of site seeing within a short span of time! Will we ever learn. Hahahahahahah!

4. It was hot and humid that day, and the square provided some welcome shade.

This was in Barcelona last October. We were there for five days as part of a 19-day trip, and we did try to squeeze a lot in!

I wasnít clear on the temps; it hit 105* here yesterday where I live in the SF Bay Area, and it should hit 103* today. Supposed to cool back down into the mid-80ís to 90ís the rest of the week.
