Greetings from Norris and Teresa. We are in a very seedy and smoky Internet cafe in Madrid. We have been doing a lot of walking and sightseeing and my presentation is now over. We have seen half a dozen museums and eaten a lot of bad food (as we find it hard to coordinate our schedules with Spanish eating times). Norris did go out for tapas last night at 10:00 with the younger brother of the pediatrician who invited me here. Tomorrow she is driving us to a monastery and then making us dinner at her house.

Happy Veteran's Day to one and all!

Rock in a Hard Place

I'm part of a faculty-student rock band at Murray. That's Mr. Chan on the strat. We have had two practices so far. We are working on a set of classic rock with a few newer songs too. We get to practice in the Orchestra room at school which is pretty nice.
