If you know me at all, you know: 
I love traveling.
I love watching people.
I love shoes.
And these things all go together.
This is what I noticed in Spain:
the women all wear heels.
Usually wedge heels.
When they go to work, they are in heels.
When they go shopping, they are in heels.
When they go for a walk, they are in heels.
I saw women on the beach in heels.
Even women with canes wear heels.

Rose and I watched from a distance as this woman walked to mass.
 In heels (well, practical ones).

Rose was more Spanish than I.

Often I had to sit.
Do you know how hard it is to wear heels on cobblestone?

Funny thing, as I was looking at the Spaniards' feet, they were also looking at mine.
Because eventually I gave up.
I really want to wear cute shoes every moment of my travels.
But sometimes I am weak.
