Some of the grocery items to take home: a Viña Pomal Reserva 2007, asparagus for ensalada mixta, bomba rice for paella, saffron, and two kinds of paprika.
My paella tonight. Okay, but not as good as the Salamanca paella.
Merluza a la Romana ( Breaded hake)
Kathy wanted to know why I didn't stay at one of the Tryp hotels. This one is less than 50 meters from my hostal, but is probably 3 or 4 times as expensive. Heck. I even have my own bathroom here in the hostal.
Only problem is the rock band that is playing tonight in the Plaza Anton Martin outside of the hostal. Hope they don't carry on too long.
