Scott Anderson commented on San Jose

Thanks, Susan! It’s nice getting late messages like this - it stretches the event out longer. Hope you’re well down there. Happy holidays!

A very belated Happy Birthday Scott! Wishing you many more years of inspired, and inspirational, pedaling.
Love the video Rachael - I've always thought that you two rock, but cool jazz seems much more fitting.
I look forward to reading more on your adventures in Spain and SoCal. Enjoy the holidays and best in the New Year.

Thanks again for keeping us company, Angela. We’re sorry to see it end ourselves, although we are enjoying having a whole conversation in English again. It was time for a change, but I’m sure we’ll be back if health and luck hold out.

And thanks for the wishes for our health. We’re both fully recovered, thankfully.

I so enjoyed following your adventures. Thank you for sharing and making it so interesting. I’ll miss my vicarious travel through Spain and Portugal every evening when I read your daily update. Hope you are both feeling better soon.

I do feel for you I was sick last year flying from Auckland to NZ and it was pure hell

+1 on the Norovirus. Hope you both feel better soon.

Yes, hope it's a short-lived bug that doesn't interfere too much with your ability to rest on the flight.

So sorry to hear this. I hope your flight is not one you will talk about as the flight from Hell. To be sick on a plane is no fun at all. Good luck.

Oh no! Let’s hope it’s not a Norovirus or that flight is going to be pure hell. Fingers crossed.

I just hope you can sleep through the flight and that you recover quickly from whatever bug you have! Hasta la vista in San Diego!

Fascinating. And I just read that the dresses can cost as much as $20,000 Euros!

Not sure I'd want to spend that much on a dress that looks so uncomfortable.

You aren't wrong. I have a ton of ideas. Apparently I gravitate towards quantity over qualiity.

Thanks for prompting me to look this up. She’s a Fallera, as are the ones we saw the next evening. It’s a traditional Valencian style, almost a whole lifestyle for the participants. They dress up this way for the Falla, Valencia’s most important festival, which falls in March; but they trot themselves out for other festivities throughout the year also.

And no, I doubt she could dance in that. She could hardly even sit down when she was posing for a shot on the stairs.

It was great, alright. Not really typical though and I’m not sure if it’s really a bike lane. It only lasted for about three or four miles.
