Photographer's Note

Lisa keeps posting photos from Andalusia and Malgo has planned a trip there, I have a new colleague at work who comes from Granada and finally: I don't plan any vacations this year, so I was motivated to finally revisit my photos from Andalusia. I so regret that I did not have my current camera and lenses over there...

Antequera was first stop in our trip around Andalusia. We arrived there quite hungry and after a short walk we started to look for food. It was siesta time so everything was closed except for one small restaurant. We did not see any menu so we tried to ask for food. They did not react to the word menu and any other word in English, German or Polish and we were not successful in communication with hands. My wife remembered two Spanish words: queso and jamon. And that is exactly what we had for the lunch: a piece of cheese, piece of ham and bread which they are trying to add to everything anyway. As far as the food was concerned worse food than in Andalusia we had only in Barcelona. In Sevilla we were so happy to spot Starbucks or even Burger King! The conclusion was: eat as far away as possible from touristic paths. It is sometimes better to eat in a dangerous area and a dirty looking place but full of local people than in a nice restaurant with a good view. Regardless how elegant it was it served an overpriced and low quality food.

This is a view from Alcazaba, a fortress build in 14th century for protection from Christians invading Andalusia from the north.
