It’s hard for me to leave Spain this time and move on to the next country. I know for a fact that parts of our crew don’t feel the same. I have always felt a connection to Spain due to my birth there, but I also don’t feel uncomfortable there (even though my Spanish couldn’t get me through anything other than ordering coffee). It’s true that many of the major cities of the world have collected enough American businesses and places to eat that those who don’t want to take a chance don’t have to. The work aspect has improved in the larger Spanish cities as they get more of the shows than the smaller towns.

The venue in the last city Santander, is a modern arena for basketball and volleyball which is shaped a lot like a motorcycle gas tank.

It’s a crummy photo, but even looking for one online, I couldn’t fine one with the entire shape in it. Here’s another tip for road people that you might already know; a new building does not mean that the crew inside will know what they’re doing. Some of the less visited towns all over the world have the same problem. To have that combination of good building and good crew just makes a good day for everyone.

From the mud of Madrid to the wild buildings of Valencia, the late start bull ring of Granada to the truly unbelievable crowd in Barcelona, we finished in the north in Santander. I’d never been there and it’s too bad we spent less than a day there. I like the north coast of Spain as much as I like the south, so I guess I’ll have to explore another time.

Being able to spend time in Malaga with Angela was a dream come true; it’s the highlight of this trip. This trip is flying along…

We arrived in Denmark yesterday for a day off. Copenhagen is one of my favorite cities and I’m looking forward to spending an off day here… that and some of my road friends are in town for the MTV Europe Music awards show…
