Back into the Soup

We are back from one of the best vacations ever.  I would highly recommend a trip along the Pilgrims route in northern Spain to Santiago de Compastela.

This is one of thousands of markers that shows the way to Pilgrims.  Whether you are a believer or not, it is a step into  a surreal time surrounded by beautiful countryside, magnificent structures and cathedrals, and a culture that could have done just about anything it set its mind too.

Spain is in a governmental crisis. They have not formed a ruling majority in over 300 days and are sort of living on a continuing resolution, much like this country does.  Their unemployment is still very high, but their economy is growing rapidly and the streets are full of people having a good time.

Strangely, no one ever asked us about Trump.  Our Presidential race was certainly in the news, but we never got any questions.  Maybe they just don't care, or they didn't want to embarrass us by asking about Trumpism.

Looking at the campaign from afar made us pretty happy to be away for a couple of weeks.  The first thing we do on Monday is vote.  And then get ready for the post election crazies arming themselves for insurrection when the Trump cries foul.  Just wait and watch the incidents happen.

What a wonderful reminder that somewhere in the world,
people are not being squawked at 24/7 about Trump/Clinton.
