Explored a new region of Spain this time,
Extremadura.

It is not visited much by foreign tourists, but there is plenty
to see.

Famous in Spain for it's Jamon Iberico, cured ham made
from pigs whose diet is strictly controlled. They mostly eat
acorns. I have found it here in Boston for $130 per pound,
and it isn't much cheaper in Spain. They don't just make
ham from these pigs - every part tastes great. In Merida we
ate at a restaurant, met the owner, and he explained that
his restaurant only serves his pigs - pigs raised on his family
farm.

From Extremadura it was off to more familiar places like
Avila, Segovia, and Madrid.  Sunny everyday but the last
day.
