A Random Sunday Part II

After the first part of last Sunday, we were hungry. And wanted more than what the little market offered, so we hopped into the car and literally drove around randomly. First on the highway, north, then we took an exit and went towards the mountains. We crossed a tiny, deserted and restaurant-less village and then found Torrelaguna, that not only had a few open restaurants but also an amazing monastery in ruins that had been transformed into a stork residence. The storks were what really convinced us.

We decided that the bar right underneath the ruins was where we’d scavenge for food. It turned out to be a good idea, even though the first time round the fish was raw. And I mean Gordon Ramsey bad word raw.

When it came back, cooked, it was delicious!

After lunch we walked to the center of town and saw the current church. Not in ruins.

Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
