    Then we rode over for lunch on the beach. While we were eating a police officer came over to look at our bikes, that we had parked on the sidewalk and took some photos. Antonia ran over to talk to him in case there was a problem, but he was just interested in our bikes. He had called a few of his colleagues who also showed up.

    This evening we had another fantastic meal prepared by Antonio and Natalia. We were sad to leave their lovely home.

    We drove thru Ronda again and then made for Sentanil where the village is built in a narrow valley and the old cave dwellings have been used to build the houses and shops.

    Then we made for Sevilla. Here we contacted Jose, who we had met on the road from hell in Morocco.

    He has a 1200 and wanted to give us a tour of the city. There is a massive festival here in April called the Feiria de Avril. Basically the city “lives” casa’s in the fair. They dress in costumes and party day and night for an entire week. Jose managed to talk the police into letting us into the restricted area with the bike so we could get a photo at the “gate of the fair”.

    After this he convinced them to watch our bikes so we could walk around. They even invited us into their “ casa or house” so we could try the traditional drink “Manzanilla”.

    Further south and west is Sagres, which is quite nice and the fresh grilled red snapper for lunch was delicious.

    There is a large fort here at the point that in the past was to protect the city from raiders from North Africa. It is more of a wall that closes off the 60 m cliffs than a traditional fort. The huge sundial is read from the top of the ramparts. The locals are actually fishing from these cliffs.

    We had been invited to the home of Annette and Tony in the tiny village of Espargal. To get back the 150 Km we did take the highway to get back faster. They are the parents of Neil who we had met at the ferry to Victoria this past summer. Neil and Franziska had spent the summer crossing Canada and were headed south. They are currently in Ecuador. We had a lovely night out at a local place with a number of their friends. The villagers still uses the Roman well here.

    This is a 2000-year-old town that is a warren of narrow cobble streets inside the ancient walls. There is a restored Roman ruin on the hilltop. We had a nice couple of nights camping.
