The Train in Spain
EPUB EBook by Christopher Howse
EBook DescriptionThis is not a book about trains but about the variety of Spain. The Train in Spain EPUB EBook The bestselling author Christopher Howse makes ten great railway journeys that explore the interior of the peninsula, its astonishing landscapes and ancient buildings. The focus is the way the Spanish live now: their habits, streets, characters, stories and quite a bit about their eating and drinking.
Christopher Howse has been travelling around Spain for 25 years, and has now made a 3,000 mile circumnavigation by train from the top of the Pyrenees through the vulture- EPUBhaunted wilds of Extremadura and the Spaghetti Western deserts of the south, to the ancient hilltop city of Cuenca and beyond. On the way he meets troglodytes, visits a city ruined by an earthquake, runs into a dancing lion, stumbles across a body-snatching plot and tries out a recipe for acorn pie. An entertaining exploration of a much-loved country, "The Train in Spain" gives a fascinating and entirely original portrait of a strange land at a time of great change. Like this book?
