Well, my four days in Madrid were absolutely sensational, thanks to all of you who came out to the book fair. My internet connectivity problems continue, and look likely to persist throughout my time here — there always has to be ONE thing keeping the trip from being perfect, right? — but while I have a moment of online time, I can point you to the photos here, which show you the high points of my time in Madrid, including lovely street scenes, the madness of the fair itself, and the two valiant fans who came all the way from Lyon for the signing.
Today is a fairly lazy day in Rome — after the big whirl in Madrid, I needed a day to read, write, eat pasta and loll around in the sun, in no particular order. But tomorrow, I fling myself into the city once again. I’ll keep checking in … when I can.
