By: Eamon Eamon Fri, 04 Apr 2008 18:51:19 +0000 I was in the park a couple of years ago for the Rocio (an annual pilgrimage across the park, made by people / pilgrims in Andalucian country carts – the women dress up in Andalucian dresses – and they sing a special sort of song called rocio, a bit like sevialla – there is, also, lots of sherry, tapas and great food).
You can only walk on foot or go on horse in the town. The party goes on through the night. Then the take the statue of the virgin of Rocio out of the Chuch and through the streets in the middle of the night.
It’s a very old tradition. Anyway it was fascinating and great fun.

Also, I was also in San Lucar (some friends of mine have a house there near the big castle / house on the hill). The sherry and the tapas / food there is great. They, also, have a well-known horse race on the beach there every year (another old tradition).

Anyway, enjoyed reading your blog a lot.

Saludos, Eamon.

It’s only her heart still holding to this world. Her soul is gone already and she certainly will be more happy to see you enjoying your trip.

By: Kango Kango Wed, 26 Mar 2008 07:49:35 +0000 Donana seems like a nice park, though I’d love to see some more pictures, specially of the birds and your boat ride, other than Mr. Lifecruiser dancing… :)

My sympathies and prayers for your Mom.
