I will be flying off tomorrow to the Kingdom of Spain and placing myself temporarily under the arms of His Majesty the King of Spain whose arms are above.  Therefore I will not be on the forum for the next couple of weeks.  I will be visiting Andalucia again, and will also add a brief stay in Madrid.  I'll post pictures to my facebook page for those of you who are connected with me there (I already have lots of pictures from previous visits).  Viva el Rey!  Viva el Reina!

Have fun in Spain, Ethio! Also, it's "Viva la Reina!", not el Reina, unless Queen Sofia had a sex change recently and forgot to inform us.

Should you have the change to 'pop over' to Portugal, visit the US Embassy.  My son is a Marine Guard there!

Yes my Spanish is horrible.  I'm sure Her Catholic Majesty would not be amused...

Unfortunately Portugal is not on schedule this time around Baron...but it will be in the future.


Thank you all.

Do enjoy Spain, Ethiomonarchist. As it happens, my mother recently returned from a trip to Grenada in Spain and kindly brought me back a full-size Spanish flag with the arms of the Kingdom on front of it for my small collection of royalist flags. I've been there only once myself, when I was a child, to Barcelona. It's a beautiful city, but I can't say much about AndalucĂ­a and Madrid; I'd definitely like to see them some day.

If I were recommending locations in the Kingdom of Spain one should visit, I would suggest Segovia.

Well I'm back from Spain and I had a wonderful time.  I love the fact that everytime I go I get to see something new.  This year I toured historic Toledo and the Royal Palace of Madrid as well as the Cathedral of St. Mary of Almudena which faces it.  It was fantastic.  Segovia will have to wait for a future visit.  I've previously visited Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba, and Rhonda, all in Andalucia. 

The terrible train tragedy near Santiago de Compostella happened on my last day in Spain.  I was in Madrid at the time so was far away from the scene, but it was truly a horrible thing to see the TV footage in Spain which shows more than what would normally be shown here in the States.
