Seeing this tribute to the late flamenco guitar master, Paco de Lucía who would have turned sixty nine years old today, gave me a HUGE smile this morning.

Check out this beautiful online exhibition, Memories of Paco, from the Instituto Andaluz del Flamenco via Google.

Here's what today's Google Doodle on google.es looks like:
