It's nice to hear you have plans to visit some of Spain's national parks. If you need some specific info on Spanish wildlife but haven't got the time to look it up yourself, let me know.

Ben, you probably already know this one but there is excellent information on Spain's national parks and wildlife at this site. A good forum too.

Right on Ben.

Your "slice of life" and bits of personal culture shock stories are exactly what makes your work fun for the rest of us.

I especially like the local view on regional languages; Colin Davies tells a story about a gentleman who grew up thinking his native Gallego was a peasant language that he needed to overcome, and being teased by castellanoparlantes. One teaser in particular is now leading the Gallego language movement but the language he's promoting is not too similar to the real Gallego the first man remembers speaking and he wishes the schools would teach Castellano so his kids can be participants in the larger Spanish econony.

And good job on being a great dad.
