Wow!

Roman Aqueduct

So we felt a bit like each city in Spain was more lovely and historic than the next. Then we got to Segovia. I don't really have the time to do it justice but the Romans sure knew how to build an aqueduct.
We're currently in Salamanca and tomorrow I plan to head solo to Portugal for a few days of touring and total language failure. I'm already speaking a pidgin version of French, Spanish, Italian and English. Now I get to really mangle Portuguese! Wish me luck.

You have my sympathy with the languages, that has happened to me,

They did, didn't they. I remember being astounded by a Roman aqueduct on the way down to Bath. Nearly two millenia old and we can't build a bridge that will last more than 30 years or so.
