OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Our stay in Zaragoza was less than one day, unfortunately. We arrived late in the afternoon and left the early afternoon the following day. Augustus Caesar founded the city about 2000 years ago. It’s about halfway between Madrid and Barcelona. Goya was born not far from there. Marlene and I fell in love the city. We stayed near the town plaza. When we arrived, we went to the hotel Marlene originally planned at staying, but did not because of her illness. When we took our walk for our fruit we eat each morning enables us to see a little bit of the area. We ate dinner near the hotel. I had a craving for something sweet, so we found an Italian restaurant, where I had lemon Italian ice. We then went back to our hotel.

Our hotel room was black and white with two large posters, one with a quote from Casablanca and the other from a James Bond movie. Our room was on the third floor with a balcony, which I shot some photos the following morning. Instead of leaving after eating breakfast, Marlene wanted to stay and walk a little around the city. I’m glad we did, because we ended up going to the art museum there. The museum was free. Inside, we saw some drawings, which depicted the city’s destruction from the French invasion, by Goya. Of course, like every local museum, local artists were featured, besides Goya. After our short extended stay, we were on our way to Catalonian city of Barcelona.
