    What a beautiful place! I haven’t tried Yemas but they look delicious. Although, I tried something that looked similar in Hong Kong and it was awful. Hopefully, these were much better!! I’m sure those little ol’ nuns put lots of love in them. πŸ™‚

  40. Sweet overview of Avila. Those Yemas though sound so delicate and delicious. An egg yolk!!

  41. Rosemary says:

    Avila looks like a beautiful city to explore. I’m heading to Spain this fall and will have to try and add it to my trip. I think getting to try those Yemas would be worth the trip.
