Maybe you shouldn't call these "BNWT" if you've worn them six times.
La Matandeta would be a really good place to try an authentic paella. It's no more/less touristy than other restaurants around there. Not my favorite in terms of decor but definitely good rice dishes. I don't really know what a "paella tour" is, though. I'd vote to see a bullfight. I personally think they should be outlawed but they are something unique and I really doubt you'll get bored. I think the wearing shorts thing also depends on how old you are. ...
Sounds good. Remember a good paella place will only serve paella at lunch and will have a minimum order of two people. They should bring out the paella in the pan for you to look at before portioning it out onto your plates.First, there is no AVE from Barcelona to Valencia. Second, I don't think a pass will work out well for you, if I understand your timing correctly...IMO makes more sense to just buy the tickets individually.Yeah, there's some good beaches that are...

Mojave is pretty depressing, as are Victorville and Adelanto. For aptly named hellholes, how about Boron (world's largest open-pit borax mine) and of course Needles (lots of drugs, plus it was used as the prototype for the computer game Wasteland, yay!).
