Fortunately the steep switchbacks, each delivering a breathtaking view made this stop worthwhile. An entire country dedicated to offering deep discounts on every conceivable consumer good in the developed worLd. Weird!!! Apparently they are in a prime location to attract both the Spanish and French ski crowd. Shop ‘n Ski!! If only Carlsbad Mall would stamp our passports! A postage stamp sized country of 80,000 citizens all devoted to consumerism.
