Dog shows and markets

Had another good weekend in Zaragoza. Melissa and I went to the very big open area market down by the soccer stadium. An amazing array of goods are sold there at very cheap prices. Imagine Pike Place Market, but every place selling either discontinued or fake brand clothes. They only have it on Sundays and Wednesdays though.

We also went to a dog show (Melissa's idea). A bit interesting to see the differences between shows in the US and here. Much less formal here, and a couple of very different breeds. Everyone wore jeans to show their dogs instead of skirts and slacks as in the US. We saw a very interesting version of a mastiff. Looked like a cross between a Mastiff and a Saint Bernard. Probably weighed close to 200 pounds....
