Remembering La Alberca (the audio post)

A long time ago, my uncle Miguel and aunt Ilse in La Alberca.

A while ago I published an essay about returning, after 25 years, to La Alberca, a village in the western end of Castilla y León. It seemed quite popular with readers, so I decided to do an audio version of it, since there are probably many subscribers to my podcast who might not come to the blog. I’m also dabbling with a new keyboard I bought recently. So this is the first time I’ve ever added my own music to an episode. Let me know what you think. Thanks for listening.

What Are You Having For Lunch?

At Madrid’s Mercado de Maravillas, there’s lots to choose from. I sometimes have a hard time deciding what to cook, so I went around the market asking other people what they were having for lunch. Hope you enjoy the latest episode. Please let me know what you think in the comments!


Madrid is Calling You

After a tremendous response to the binaural soundscape I did of Madrid’s Rastro–you said, “¡Más, más!”–I got right on it. Here it is. Remember, you must wear earbuds or headphones to enjoy the three-dimensional sound experience. I hope you like it, and if you do, it would be a big help if you leave a review on iTunes for me (click the link and then hit the “View in iTunes” button, where you’ll see the menu for Ratings and Reviews). Thank you for your support!
