Reliving the Past!
After the Parador Alarcon we drove toward Murcia where Tyler's family lived for 2 years when Tyler was 9-11 years old. Every now and then you would see this same silhouette of a bull off in the distance in different areas so I wanted a picture of it!
We made a stop at a Go Kart place where Tyler's dad took all his brothers when they lived there. The Go Karts there have barely any substance to them and no governors! So they are light and you can go as fast as you want. The track they had was really big so we had a lot of fun cruising around on it for 8 minutes!
Tyler was MORE than excited about this stop.
He definitely beat me but I gave him a small run for his money :)
Next stop was visiting his old house! They lived in government housing and since no one lives in these houses right now the yard looked a bit run down...But they were beautiful homes! Too bad we couldn't go inside and take a peek.
This is the backyard and Tyler is pointing at the tree that used to pop all their soccer balls! He said the tree is HUGE now. Wasn't that big 20 years ago!
We then walked to his elementary school. He's doing a ninja jump on the field he used to play at whenever he had a free moment. They only lived a short walk from the school so we got to walk the path he used to take!
We came on a Sunday but we got lucky because the school was open to voters for voting day!!! So we got to go inside and take a look around. Tyler found his old classroom.
This other half of the school was where Chandler and Spencer went :)
The gate was open today but he remembered having to press in a code to get inside everyday to go to school
When they first arrived in Spain they lived in this apartment while the movers brought all their stuff which was just down the road from the house. I was amazed at how much he remembered.
We then rode an elevator up to a super tall building that also used to be a castle and walked around for a bit. On our way up there were two peacocks in the tree calling to each other. It was very impressive seeing them perched on a limb. And if you can't tell, I'm pointing at the tail of one of them.
At the top taking in the view. Just beautiful! The water behind me is where Chandler was baptized. Pretty awesome!
