In my last post you could read about the Romeria San José to El Rocio – and we could still on Monday see many, many eqiupage crossing the river Guadalquivir from Donaña nationalpark.

Though the look and the mood of the caballeros where now a bit different from when they were going the other way: very, very tired and some seemed to have back and butt ache – and maybe even headache ;-)

They looked very satiesfied, even though a bit chilled, since the weather had changed a bit and the winds were more chilly.

We can feel that weather even today – we have rain.

Monday went by shopping groceries – many bags, the Captain is a very hungry monster and we can´t eat out all the time even if the prices is much more human over here than in Sweden. It´s about 2/3 of the price in Sweden.

That was the food. The beer (1-1,50 Euro), wine and other drinks are less than half the price from in Sweden and we shall not even mention the prices in the store.

Yesterday we did look up the nearest riding stable, Arboleda in La Jara. Miss Ass. Lifecruiser were interested to see it. She had seen some very nice videos on the internet from their preformances.

They had a lot of good looking Andalucian horses, but the place were much smaller than we had imagined and the location of it were in the middle of other buildings, a bit too crowded for our taste. Somehow not appealing to us.

After that we went to the golf course again where Mr L did practise, only on the driving range. We met another Swede there too, a very nice man, so we sat outside the bar enjoying the sun and had some beer afterwards talking.

It turned out that he and Miss Ass. Lifecruiser had something in common – they have both lived in Uppsala and Karlstad-area in Sweden. It´s funny how you can meet people from home out in the world!

Today we went to the market in Sanlúcar, lots and lots of fish, meat and vegetables. Sorry to say, I forget to take photos with my mobile phone, you have to wait until I come home to see photos from there.

I´ve problems to upload photos from my mobile too, from time to time and especially right now, so this will be a post without photos. *bummer*

Miss Ass. Lifecruiser bought meat for 6,50 Euro/kg. Very nice looking meat I must say. All the fish, shrimps, crabs were so fresh and alive, no smell at all.

We have also book some flight tickets home. Yes, eventually we do have to go home… Because of the Easter, we got stuck here a bit longer than we have in mind from the beginning.

We will fly home the 5th of April from Malaga. We plan to rent a car for some days before that and drive down the coast to explore some places on the way.

I´ll tell you more about our plans later on.

    I´m so glad you´re having a great time, Captain! Can´t wait to read more about the coast exploring adventures!

    Confession: I so hoped you´ll have to pass Frankfurt again on your way back to Sweden… not only to send over some sunshine, but to take you out for coffee and cake. Frankfurt is just 220 km away from my home… :mrgreen:

    But i´m sure we´ll meet some other day… and I will wave when your plane crosses Germany *grin*

    Sitting here in Sweden – Mariestad to be excact (chez Renny and Diane) – it sounds like paradise where you now are and what you now experience. I’m very happy you could after a lang travelling pause at last stick away again.

    reading every word and dreaming away.

    Thanks for exciting travel reports. We do envy you – that can travel “outside” School Vacations.

    btw. We have a busy “travel” season to come: Anna to Hong Kong end of June beginning of July- Me: Chicago/Michigan end of July and Hong Kong beginning of October. In between summerhouse – from end of July to end of October and Anna’s – you know what?
    Sitting here besides Renny – he hope you will be able to come over. I can take some days off – no problemas. If it’s cheaper to go by air, we will pick you up at the Airport. The rest is for free. And our summerhouse, we think, is your style as well. Comfort and nature and simplicity combined, also with privacy;))
