We did not know the Spanish loved sweets so much. It seemed as if every other shop was a coffee-sweet shop and they always were busy. Add to the coffee and sweets cups of thick chocolate into which they dipped deep fried bread-sticks and that should give you the picture of the love of sweets in Spain.
One evening in Valencia we were in a restaurant. Three very smartly dressed ladies older than the two of us walked in and sat at a table beside us. To us it was time for our evening meal. For them it was time for a cup of thick, sweet chocolate and fried bread-sticks. We later tried a cup of the thick chocolate - minus the bread-sticks - and enjoyed it very much.
You couldn't get away from sweet foods! Sweet rolls and other pastries were on the hotel breakfast tables also.

Originally we thought this blog would report only on our trip to Prague. However, we have decided to add entries and photos previous trips. We hope you enjoy them.
