" In High Spanish Mountains..."




Last week, we stayed in a house up in the Sierra de Tejeda, from where we watched a helicopter transport water, then spray a fire in our near-distance. Now we hear that forest fires in Almeria are causing havoc. Hopefully all will soon be well.

See my picture en route through winding unsurfaced mountain roads.... to a whitewashed village called Frigiliana ( also pictured). The route was wild and beautiful and every twisting corner afforded a more spectacular view.
And Frigiliana itself is a delight. It's origins are Moorish and there's a medieval quarter where tiles on various houses tell the story of the village. We had 2 long lazy lunches on a terrace in a restaurant in the square.... plus a morning spent at one of the best street markets we've ever visited.
A relaxing week in a superb part of the planet!

1st time I went to Spain was with my brother and a gang of his old school friends.
They were all about to go off to Uni and it was yrs and yrs ago.
We had a great time!
