caza feliz: día uno

This year I’m taking the 30 days of Gratitude challenge again because I want to chronicle the tiny things that make living in Spain so strange, enchanting, challenging, curious or unfathomable;  the small bits that might otherwise be forgotten.  And on the days that I trip on the cobbles in front of the school at pick-up, have an incomprehensible parent-teacher conference, and drop a dozen eggs at the corner store, it’s necessary to hunt happiness.

So here we go.  Hunting happiness in Spain.  Starting with, of course, wine.


I’m sorry… I know it’s nothing profound… but… people:  The wine here is so good.  And it’s so cheap.  And did I mention that it is so good?  We spend an average of $3 for a fantastic bottle, which means that we take the doctors’ recommendations for a glass a day very seriously.

Also?  I find I speak better Spanish after a bit of Rioja.  Soju had the same affect on my Korean.
