Photos from Valencia
The Plaza del Ayuntamiento at night, from the balcony of our hotel room. Note how discreetly the golden arches fit into the background: the red sign to the left of the traffic light.
Same view in daylight without the zoom.
We forget which church plaza this is -- there are so many of them. Probably in Valencia, but maybe another city. The banner on the wall commemorates a visit by John Paul II.
A meat shop with hanging hams and sausages, at the Mercado Central, which my guidebook calls "the city's true royal palace, Spain's largest and most beautiful market, a confection of iron and glass, topped with a parrot-and-swordfish weathervane."
Me at La Ciudad de las Artes y Las Ciencias, showplace for the work of architect Santiago Calatrava.
More Calatrava. Note the tiny workman standing on the side of the taller building.
