Spanish culinary delights!

During the trip, we had paella after paella, having found out that each region has their own specialty in preparing the stuff. The best is said to be in Valencia. We had that while there but too hungry to take photos. And of course, tapas! These are small plates or bowls of cooked dishes served either hot or cold to accompany your favourite beverage. Here's some images of the food sampled in Spain.
