I suppose I wouldn't sound that way if I were ninety! You in turn sound a little oldish, but every body has to carry its own weight, hasn't it? You love to give big great lessons in an absolute and authocratic manner. I suppose it'd be easier if you'd get to the point that perfection (what you seek by telling people what to do) doesn't exist. It seems you've been playing soldiers too long! My acquaintences seem very happy and happen to enjoy my presence very well and funnily, but they might as well be terrific actors! The Cave that you visited was in all probability a place called Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas, which dates from the Independence War (something quite different from the Inquisition, mind you!) May I know who took you there? Have you travelled in any other places? De: "david still"

I have never been to Altimira, though I had shrimp and beer in a place called called The Cave(s)? in Madrid, where I sat upon an upturned wooden barrel in a tiny room that had been used to hold prisoners dujring the glorious (alas now gone) days of the Inquisition, and I had slept in a tiny rented car in a national park--it was illegal but I could not find a motel that had rooms--and woke to find a guard with a rifle pointed at my head. Since my Spanish was as bad as it currently is, I managed to use hand signals etc to tell him (all a lie) that I had driven from Portugal and was totally exhausted and was afraid I would crash over the narrow coastal road and intol the sea and thus used his glorious park--it had agreat match of caves to be explored) for sleeping. He told me it would be ok till the sun was fully up and the next set of guards came on duty.
