Europes Largest Aquarium...

One day we spent some time in Europe's largest aquarium, L'Oceanografic. There was a Wetlands exhibit with free flying birds, and several small tanks housing various fish and terrapins inside it.

This large dome is the Wetlands exhibit, it is almost 26 metres high!

The red birds in the background were quite a sight!

This bird was perched on a branch right by the entrance to the dome, and was just asking to have his picture taken!

There were several of these birds strutting around...this one was pecking at the floor and made me think of a chicken with oversized legs!

These terrapins were swimming around in the tanks, but I caught this one sunbathing! 

Thanks for looking, next week I'll be putting up some photos of the dolphin show we saw at the aquarium.

I had an amazing time in Spain! One of the things I enjoyed the most was the food! My hosts took me out to several traditional restaurants and "all you can eat" buffets. So here are just a few photos of some of the food you might expect to find in Valencia...

This is from one of the very first meals I had in the city. We found a traditional cafe serving tapas, which are a wide variety of hot and cold appetizers which are often served several at a time as a main meal.

We went to one of the largest indoor markets in Europe. There were several stores like this selling "jamones" - hams.


And lastly, I couldn't put photos of Valencian food up without a photo of their world famous oranges!
