The World Is Not Flat
That's my conclusion after spending time in Sevilla and Barcelona over the past two weeks.
Being without a cellphone and computer in a foreign country forces certain changes that include both the subtle and the profound.
The subtle: when you become separated in a crowd and haven't coordinated a rendezvous point, you end up walking around a lot.
The profound: not understanding the subtleties of how siesta hours affect supermarket schedules can lead to major changes in eating plans.
