Photographer's Note

From Malaga I went to Jerez de la Frontera. As I have already written I went further to see Cadiz as well. But before Cadiz I changed trains in Dos Hermanas, so I had a bit time to see also Dos Hermanas. The city's name, which means "two sisters", dates from its founding in 1248 by King Ferdinand III of Castile and honours the sisters of Gonzalo Nazareno, one of the king's principal military commanders. For this reason natives of Dos Hermanas are called nazarenos/as.
In Andalusian old town the streets are very narrow giving the shadow in the hot days. But what to do when the street is wider? There is a solution - the linen roof. I saw the photos from Larios street in Malaga with such a roof and was very disappointed when it was absent. And in Dos Hermanas I found it! I was a bit hungry so I went to a small cafe for breakfast. I observed that the local people took tostadas: the rolls toasted, it is nothing strange, but on it they poured a bit of olive oil. I also tried it, quite tasty.
You know how crazy I am about meetings. Today I met 100th Trekker - Wolfgang fritzi007. We had nice walk in Łazienki Park, the weather was perfect.
