the entire city shuts down for siesta

It’s siesta in Spain and the entire city closes down from 2 to 5 p.m. I arrived exactly a week ago and despite the fact that NO ONE speaks a word of English or French, I’m enjoying myself immensely. I need to learn Spanish.

I rented a super nice apartment in the Old Town where I am right now drinking espresso and enjoying the air conditioning. It’s so quiet you could hear a pin drop. What do Spaniards do during siesta? Do they actually sleep? Even the barking dog on the floor above has gone silent. Air conditioning is essential. It’s super hot and sunny outside; I hear it’s brutal during July and August.

Back to Paris in a few days; it’s only a one hour 40 mn flight from Paris to Valencia. I cannot post any photos because I’m writing this on my tablet.

Incidentally, the paperback version of my book is now available on Amazon  –
