Happy Valentine’s Day or as it’s known here in Spain Feliz Día de los Enamorados! Susan and I had an amazing lunch today and I will give you the details tomorrow or the next day. Afterwards we walked back home and on the way picked up our train tickets for our end of March escape to Madrid. We have tickets for El Rey León, as well as two magic shows. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.
Yesterday Susan did her morning Pilates and I did some cardio and weights at the gym. Jordi had invited us for lunch at Carosel so after a quick shower we made the five-minute trip to the restaurant. The reason for the invitation is that he has a photo project for Susan that involves both Carosel and his new place, La Terraza del MUVIM.
Lunch as usual was spectacular. The table de entrantes include a cream of corn soup, a tomato salad made with a variety of tomato local to Valencia (tomate Raf). The salad, in addition to the tomatoes included onions and julienned carrots and mojama (dried red tuna). There was also a coca de escalibada and a type of croqueta that was filled with tuna and other goodies. Our main dish was an arroz meloso that was filled with mussels and squid. Unbelievably tasty!
Susan will need to meet with Vicki to work out the details of the photo shoot and the good news is that there is abundant time for this project to unfold. The rest of the day was really uneventful. Susan curled up in her rocker in her office and read her book and I did some work on the computer. It was around midnight when we went to bed.
