The Hostal Hispania, where I stayed
A lovely example of the early-twentieth-century, English-influenced
architecture around town. A huge room, bathroom with tub, modern fixtures,
cable TV, a balcony looking out onto the rugged foothills of the Sierras, swimming pool, gazebo ... all for US $10 a night, breakfast included. This country is insane.
I was lining up the boys for a photo by this grand old Ford truck,
when the gal at left joined the scene. I think the result is one of the best
kid shots that's ever quirked its way into my camera lens.
