Yesterday I took the oportunity to go to a "Fast painting contest", I don't know what is the English equivalent. The thing is you should paint something related to the city which organizes the contest. I didn't won (I always keep some hope, very childish from me) but I figured out I should work above all my colouring. I have no pictures, I haven't my drawing because I left it in an exhibition. But when I go to pick it up I'll show it, take it for granted.

La Plaza Mayor is more or less like the Mall in the United States cities, but adding four centuries more. Here just next to the city church, devoted to St. Martin, there is a Pizarro's statue. For those who doesn't anything about him in short he lived in fifteenth century, he was an illegitimate son, had a brother from his second mother's marriage with whom went to Peru. I had some expedition to America, had some figths and, finally was assassinated.
Good wine and good cheese, but it are not the only positive things you could find in Castilla la Mancha. Here there are a drawing of "La Asuncion" bellfry church and a picture of the castillian fields. Here, it is said "ancha es Castilla", it means "Castilla is wide", and I would add "and red".
