Last night we had the immense pleasure of playing in Cafe Pop Torgal in Ourense. I played there once four years ago and was really looking forward to returning. It’s a tiny little place, fitting 100 people at the most. The atmosphere is so special. The owners of the place are true music lovers and also really great hosts. After the show we all went out to an epic dinner where they treated us to all the local delicacies. This region in Spain is especially known for the way they prepare octopus from the local waters. And today we’ve crossed over to Portugal, where we’ll be playing at a museum in Bragança . . . one of two cities on this tour which I’ve never been to. The drive today took us on tiny roads through the mountains. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We passed through a couple tiny villages which really felt like going back in time.
