Santillana del Mar.

If you ignore the hundreds of tourists snapping away on their Nokias, it's like walking back in time. A World Heritage site - a perfectly preserved/restored little medieval town with prehistoric cave paintings just a short walk away. All of history is here.

Thanks to a friend in Santander I already had contacts here. Good contacts. Contacts like; here's your bed, here's your food, here's your drink, here's my number for any help you may need - now get to work :) My sort of people. Staying for 2, or 3 days.

Interesting trip to get here via the Atlantic on a yacht! (Sort of).

Hi,

It was a very short ride along the coast of the Cantabrian sea! No plans to head back to NY immediately.

Spending a few days in Barcelona to arrange future exhibitions, then I start walking again in Asturias towards Oviedo. My plans are a little bit vague, but I can take a diversion at anytime. San Sebastian is a very nice place to visit. Especially at this time of year.

I'm in Barcelona until Tuesday.

Hope all is good with you.

All the best,

John.
