To all of you sending Kathy notes of encouragement about the chocolate, she is hopelessly enamored without it. And, I have caught on to her shenanigans with the so called authentic Spanish hot chocolate, that is really nothing but straight and pure warm chocolate in a cup. Whether it is in solid or liquid form, it still has the same number of calories–one cup (btw–a cup for Kathy is a mug the size of a Texas quart jar) is an entire caloric intake for a day. I can eat 10 pastries and not even come close.
Tonight, we go to Teatro De La Maestranza for the Sinfonica De Sevilla in concert with Ravel, Saint-Saens, Schubert and Mozart on the play list. We have been looking forward to getting to this venue which looks impressive from the outside and is beside the famous Sevilla Maestranze or bull ring. I wanted to attend a fight there, but alas, the season opens after we depart. So, I am posting earlier today than usual. We will get back to our apartment after midnight unless the chocolate con churros shops are closed for the night, then we will get back earlier–I pre-bought some pastries just in case those shops are closed;-) WEG
