Good Vacation

My Trip

Brief Highlights:
-"Homage to Catalonia" proved a good reading companion, even if I was in the wrong part of the peninsula...
-Jabugo, the home of the best jamon iberico. I swear, the Andalucians treat jamon like a spice.
-The Alhambra. Thank you Washington Irving for helping to promote awareness and allow us this grand legacy.
-Ronda and the birth of bull fighting
-Gibraltar and Mumtazz takeout
-Cadiz's winding, narrow streets, Casa Caracol, and the camera obscura
-Jerez, Tio Pepe, and some very nice manzanilla
-Wandering the lands of Tartessos, an Iberian Atlantis and lost, metal-rich culture
-Fresh grilled piles of fish in Faro
-Sintra's palace, twin of Neuschwanstein in terms of crazed royal romantic beauty
-Lisbon's Erasmus corner.
