After a taxi ride to find a recommended restaurant, we discovered that it was full… No tables available. So we reserved for a future date and found another spot to grab a bite on Reina Plaza downtown. Norm and I found an Irish pub for traditional fare, and Al and Ingrid tried Paella Valencia (rice with chicken and rabbit). We had tried paella with chicken the previous day. Then we walked to Marques de Dos Aguas Palace, a beautiful place to see.
There is a collection of ceramica so prevalent in designs throughout history on the 3rd and 4th floors of this spectacularly refurbished palace, including the charmingly decorated kitchen.
I love all things pottery and ceramic and crystal and china, but I will include just a couple designs that I liked.
We caught a city bus to return to the Rusaffa condo, picking up some snacks at the street cafe or market nearby, and retired to catch up with the rest of our world on our digital devices.

I LOVE reading your daily blog! I was a Spanish major, and I spent a semester in Salamanca. We visited Valencia, Malaga, Sevilla, Cordoba and other cities. I am very eager to go back, but what a great way to do it, staying for so long with friends. We won’t have time like that til Dick retires in two years when he’s 70!

So glad to have along for the ride! We could use a Spanish major, but we are improving in our communication abilities.. Mostly in asking for directions… Donde es? And in reading menus. Our condo is in an artsy, trendy (we are told) section of Valencia.. The Rusafa area. I think you would like it. Isn’t it time to start planning the “Beach Trip”?
