Burying the Lead…Photo

Spain - Estepona 212“In journalism, there’s an expression: Don’t bury the lead (also known as the “lede”). Basically, it means you should write the most important thing first; each successive paragraph can flesh out the main idea for those who are interested in reading further.” Dorie Clark

Well, I buried the lead photos. In haste, I did not include the most important photos for the lead in the post “You Gotta Help Me Rhonda“. The photos were meant to accompany the paragraph below. Mea culpa!

“After two hours, we walked over to the taxi stand, but noticed a crowd milling around Spain - Estepona 213across the street, looking down at the park below. Curious, we went there to see what was happening. It just turned out to be a few young men hanging around. Being the Easter weekend, they did not have anything better to do than show-off for the public.”

For penance, I am posting all three related photos.

Spain - Estepona Hanging around

After completing my Ed.D., the frustration of finding a teaching position where I was willing to live, led to Ron and I leaving the country. We intended to travel for a year before settling somewhere in MA or RI.

We left the US without any credit card debt, no car payments and our house mortgage paid by renters. We had $10,000 in the bank to make our way through a year.
