Notes from Spain and Baltimore

Not a lot going on with the Yellow Submarine, other than Fernando Roig's admirable giving away of tickets, but here are a couple of links you may find interesting.

First, a story of the economy in Vila-Real, which is facing difficult times as the global economy has caused a housing bubble implosion, dealing a severe blow to the ceramic tile makers that have been the heart of the town's economy.

Next, as to Baltimore, Chelsea and Milan will be playing a friendly here on Friday, july 24, 2009. I am very excited, as, well, let's just say that this sort of thing doesn't happen here in Baltimore all that much! I will be buying my tickets tomorrow.
