  1. A few things..

    a) Pilar sounds fantastic- a perfect friend for you!
    b)Sagrada Familia and Las Ramblas sounded so familiar to me when I was reading your post, and I couldn't figure out why, since I've never been to Spain. Finally I remembered I did a report on Barcelona in my freshman Spanish class and learned about them.
    c)Spending all summer hiking around Montana, chipmunks have become a familiar friend to me. No matter how many times I see them, I just can't help but melt inside and repeat "awww" every time they make even the slightest movement. I think they are so adorable and awesome and fast and sneaky and hungry and i love them. It has crossed my mind, if people have bunnies, ferrets, mice, etc. for pets, why not chipmunks? Well now I know. Some people do. They live in Spain. (Plus I think they're cuter burrowing in and out of dirt, instead of a cage. )

  2. Chipmunks or sale? How can they tame them to be pets. What do they do with them? Wondering if they eat them...sorry Claire.
    Love all the other shots, I'll forward to Mr. W.
