I just wanted to pass along a good story I found today. Most of you reading my blog enjoy vicarious travel via a good cultural travel story.
My first name is quite rare in Spain. However, it is common enough that people don’t just say, “Huh?” when I tell them my name. And for some reason, probably the Basques (the source of all native usages of the letter ‘K’ in this country), most Eriks in Spain spell their name as I do. But it’s still very rare!
So, imagine my surprise to find this written on the side of my building!
This morning I went, as I do every day, to the local grocery store to buy bread and something to make for lunch.
