VERY TIRED AND VERY HAPPY

We are in Andalusia! After a looong day flying from Vancouver to Toronto to Zurich to Malaga and driving two hours to Olvera we have settled into our place. It is so beautiful here - I am happy to report that nothing has changed since I was here last in 1992. The white towns are white, gorgeous, and the wise people here continue to make sure they don't get messed up. An excellent argument for strict and restrictive town planning - which I often do not advocate... 

 

View to the valley in front of our house. My mind just rests when I see this.

View towards the City from our door. We are in a no cars area, in the Old Town of Olvera.

Our first dinner in Spain. The Spartan menu is due to the fact that we arrived on a Sunday and cannot buy anything, and also cannot eat out. Everything is closed, with the exception of a little bakery where we got bread and cheese, a jar of pickles for Lili and bottle of wine for Dante. And there we sat, still groggy from all the travel and admired the evening sun.
