The thing about plans is that they never last 15 April 2009

So according to the detailed plan I made 2 weeks ago in Marseille, I should be heading to Florence right now. But no, I´m back in Barcelona and I´m staying in Toulouse tonight, and back in Le Vignaud tomorrow.

Spain is strange. All the touristy places play the same bad American music from 10 years ago. I have heard the Cher song ¨do you believe in life after love?¨so many times in the past 2 weeks that it´s disgusting.

I really stocked up on books at some used English book shops I found in Madrid. It´s great to have the books, but they are so heavy! I can´t believe how much stuff I keep accumulating and carrying.

I think I´m going to go back to Amsterdam for Queen´s Day on 30 April. It will be an interesting and exciting experience, I´m sure. Last night in a bar I met a guy from Louisiana, who also had not been home since he was 21 (but he is 35 now so it´s a little different for him). It was great to have some bayou talk in rainy Madrid. I didn´t sleep at all last night, except for 1 hour on the Madrid-Barcelona train this morning, so my brain is totally fried. I brushed my teeth in a Burger King. It´s one of those days.

Oh, also you will all be glad to know that my wallet is now securely fastened to my pants by chain. And I finally have my ATM and credit card back!

    Amsterdam should be fabulous in 2 weeks. You are certainly becoming quite the traveler!

    Glad you are flexible and still enjoying your adventure. Catha and Christine were in Russelville on their way to Ft. Worth, TX for spring break. Had a great visit. We had dinner with C & C tonight.

    So why back to Le Vignaud and not on to Greece now? Can see myself becoming pasionately involved with the restoration, but my hope for you is to get a feel for all of Europe. I did not have an opportunity to see Greece and hope you don’t miss it.

    Love you my dear,

    Hi Julianne,
    Thank you for your nice letter. Sounds like you are having a ball in Europe. It was really fun hearing from you and I’m so glad you saw Manet’s Olympia. Of course, being a typical male, I don’t remember giving you the book.

    I’m much too boring for a blog, but please keep in touch on my email at stanley@fuse.net. Who wants to hear about the life of a stockbroker? El Snoozearoo. Give my best to your Mom, Dad, and siblings. Have fun and thanks again. Ethan (the 38-year old).

    Also, I have no idea what Manet’s Olympia looks like. I’ll google it now. Talk soon.
