Sam went to the Post this morning. What an adventure that was! Much different than the USPS. In America my post office workers are always helpful. People haven't got a thing to complain about, and I will make it a point to let them know when I am home. Thank goodness my host Jordi went with me and navigated the first opposition: "It's too large to ship!" to "Contents" that are on a non published list. We chose "medical equipment" as that was the closest box to check from the secret list. Her box was under all weight and size requirements that the woman working there with the blue speckled hair was skeptical about. She'll stay in Germany, until our next trip to the EU. I thank my friends Regi and Tom for hosting her.
I had my favorite Catalonian toast for lunch with my salad. So easy, and delicious. Missing my tomato sandwiches from my garden, they are a welcome replacement. Toast good crusty bread, cool to room temp. Rub 1/2 a tomato over the bread "just enough for flavor, but not too much to make bread soggy." Then a drizzle of olive oil, and pinch of sea salt. OMG, I am not a bread or toast eater, and I could eat a whole loaf like this.
My hosts have been amazing people to get to know. They are a power couple by American standards. They work the best print shop I have ever been in, each with their own expertise, and talents. I want to come back, but don't know if I ever will. I thank Jordi and Claudia for EVERYTHING! And I will miss my friend "Duardo" the cat, and his constant love.
Each day is a gift, open now!
