I read this book on the strength of a recommendation from a friend of mine. It is funny to the point of laugh out loud which caused a few raised eyebrows around a very quiet and sedated hotel pool. This couple's experiences in getting to grips with Inland Spain is amusing as they seem to leap from one adventure to another, although, not always taking it in their stride. It is a particularly heart warming book and generally shows how two different cultures can get along and thrive. It was difficult to put down, which cost me dearly as I got burned in the Florida sun!
