I am at the airport lounge after 3 days of Ferrari madness. Thanks to all people at Ferrari for making this a memorable occasion, and hope to be back at Finali Mondiali no matter where you hold it next year. My thanks especially to Herbert, Salvatore and Adrea. Finally got to taste some Spanish food (Ferrari only serves Italian food, but always the best) on my way out today.
Unlike Madrid and Barcelona, two cities getting a bad rap because of unemployment and crime, Valencia is a nice city. Although the hard times of economy is showing, it still is safe, pleasant and tasty city to come to. The food here is especially good, of course the Valencia Orange Juice is king.
Valencia is where MotoGP, World Cup Sailing and many many sports events are held. It has a modern marina and new hotels, but this time I stayed in the old city close to everyday people. People are nice and most of the commercial people speak English, as a matter of fact it has a large population of British and Americans who moved here in the good old days. It was one of the top destinations for British retirement. An American lady walked in to my Tapas asking in English for 1 whole piece Chicken for Thanksgiving.
I wish I could go to London for meeting with Mike @ D-FUSE but I don’t want to get stick in the European winter snow which has just stared and will wreak havoc at Heathrow. So off I go to CDG and Tokyo. I may have to be in LA and HK for month of December so the travel never stops. I wish all readers a happy and memorable Thanksgiving as we thank each other for what we have.
There may be some bad ones I am told, but all the Tapas I ate was wonderful
Sorry, not much pics of food this time. Ate them before I realized a photo opportunity. Potato Salad
Some parts of city show hard economic times like any city, but Valencia is lively and energetic city
Huge Huge Palm trees are everywhere here.
Airport, bye bye and will be back here racing I am sure.
My Tumi Backpack with Wheels, this is the best bag for ANY travel I have discovered, at the airport lounge where I write this article.
