But, deciding to travel further a field and knowing only the Spanish phrase for 'Will you please give me a glass of water?', he heads for Spain. With just a blanket to sleep under and his trusty violin, he spends a year crossing Spain, from Vigo in the north to the southern coast.

This book paints a lyrical picture of a beautiful and violent country that was to involve him inextricably."@en ;
