As I sit to recount the tale of my journey to the deplorable American-style shopping mall (with indoor go-kart track and indoor skiing) ...
skiing in Madrid in the summer? WRONG!
.... my environmental hackles rise. I hated the experience of a bit of misplaced America. I hated Apple for having such a poorly placed shop. I later learnt that Apple will have a shop in the very centre of Madrid, of Spain ... in the Tio Pepe building at Sol.
Makes sense; but don't take Tio Pepe away ... it's an institution, that sign!
... I am not inspired to write the post, which would be the post to end all posts. Instead, I want to say I'm tired.
Oh so tired.
And I want to say how much I love the Dutch. And when I ride in the Dutch trains and look out on their flat fields, it seems to me that they segregate their sheep from their cows, and I wonder if sheep and cows don't get along. I wonder if they fight for grass. I wonder if it is a livestock requirement: to segregate the species.
