Rock climbing in Torrelodones

We spent an afternoon climbing the enormous boulders in Torrelodones which is the little suburb of Madrid where the Victoria family lives. This is Alex on the summit of a big pile of rocks.

Andrew posing, pretending to hold up the gigantic rock.

This is one of the wild cork trees that grow in the arid countryside around Madrid.

A section of the bark cut to reveal the cork.

We finished the evening off by playing "Axis and Allies" with Manuel, Mr. Victoria and Paco (Julian).

bet your mom loves that shot of rock climbing. The gardens of Spain are on my to-do list, Alhambra, Alcazar. This is such an incredible treat.
