My name is Erik Rasmussen. This is a little blog that I keep up to lessen the gap between me and my friends and family in the United States. As such, they are my main audience. Other people are welcome to read and comment as well, though.
Originally from North Carolina, I moved to England in December, 2001, and lived and worked there for three and a half years. I moved to northern Spain in June, 2005, and have quickly adjusted to the lifestyle. In March of 2009, my daughter, Nora, was born.

This is what the town and the surrounding area look like from above:
