EuropaFM

by Emily Benjamin

There isn’t a lot to say in this post. All I can say is that these artists took up 95% of the airtime on EuropaFM in Spain, which was the only English music station available across the whole country. Needless to say, after a few thousand kilometres, I never want to hear these artists again*.

Jason DeRulo
Usher
Katy Perry
Ke$ha
Michael Jackson
Jessie J feat. Bob(?) – whatever, the song was Price Tag
Nelly Furtado
Shakira
Enrique Iglesias

*Except Katy Perry’s Firework. That song is undeniably catchy. Even Monkey loves it.

Toledo

by Emily Benjamin

We had just one night in Toledo, but that is still more time than most visitors spend here. By 6pm, the streets are nearly empty, as the tourists file back onto their buses to Madrid. But then you can wander quietly, taking in the narrow streets, towering cathedrals and spectacular views. I’m really glad we made time for a night here, and not just because it meant churros for breakfast the next day! Next stop: Granada!
