It’s so beautiful here, I just have to share a whole lotta pictures.
This is en route to where we are staying:
Ronda is the nearest big town from where we are. Apparently Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles liked to come there, their plaques are right next to the bull fighting arena that we refuse to visit. It’s a beautiful town, situated on top of cliffs with a bridge across a very steep valley. We had dinner in a side street that was filled with restaurants.
In ‘our’ village Montejaque there was a cultural festival. I was too tired to go see the Queen tribute band (they started playing half an hour after midnight) but we did catch some Flamenco dancing earlier in the week.
Close to the village we took a beautiful, not too long (as my ankle is still not fully healed yet), hike which included vultures checking us out. The scenery here is stunning!
We also had lunch in Setenil de las Bodegas, a small town with buildings built inside, or really set up against, caves.
Sunset outside our apartment the other evening…
Yesterday we went to Sevilla, with the cathedral that holds the Christopher Columbus grave monument and still shows its Moorish roots in its arches for instance, then out in the streets there are sheets covering some streets to offer shelter from the sun. We plan on going back again later to visit the castle.
We ended yesterday in Ronda again, this time looking up at the city from below and then having dinner there in a square.
We’ve also had time to swim and just hang.
And these were only the first 4 days… I love holidays!
