benchmark

stone bench

I am amused by this stone bench up beyond the bull ring in Arenas de San Pedro, Castilla y León, central Spain.

Banco de Castilla no longer exists as an independent bank, but I am glad the benches it sponsored have not been removed. They are indeed bancos de Castilla – Castilian benches.
