That's where Alicia Carriles comes in. She's the wife of Spanish golfer Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and she's blogging from the Masters this year at Spain's Ten-Golf. With a perspective that's uniquely engaging, she writes about Augusta National's history, the sights and sounds of the American south and her own personal journey as she supports her husband's Masters dream. For those who don't understand Spanish, Alicia's writing translates quite well via Google, and like her husband, @AliciaCarriles frequently tweets in English.
