    Bakery in Los Arcos ...Warning.

    I'm reading this sitting in a well-known chain store cafe in Sheffield, Northern England. I definitely ordered a medium latte but it cost more than I was expecting and seems to be a large one. But hey, I'm obviously a southerner. Tourist prices?

    Request for funds from Le Puy Cathedral and video
