On the Road: Zaragoza to Bilbao, Spain

is there anything sadder than a field of dead sunflowers?

On the road between Zaragoza and Bilbao we saw wind turbines, solar farms, vineyards, and valleys. And we turned up the music really loud and danced in our seats.

Who knew there was so much renewable energy in Northern Spain?  I don't understand how some people think wind turbines are ugly. I think they are the most beautiful, graceful things.

Next week... Basque country.

And the craziest festival we've ever been to.
