I'll post a couple of items later in the week about the cava trip to Spain, but I wanted to hit some of the highlights today:
• The Wine Curmudgeon appreciates any country where people drink wine at lunch, and those three-hour lunches aren't bad, either. Though I will never, ever get used to dinner at 9 p.m.
• Spain, like much of the rest of the European Union, has enacted tough, American-style no-smoking laws. Which means Spaniards are standing outside buildings smoking -- a sight I never, ever thought I would see.
More, after the jump:
