Ronda, Spain


A squinty hello from Ronda.  Ronda is my favorite spot on the trip so far.  The town hangs out over this cliff with the bridge connecting new town and old town.  Down below the cliffs are grape and olive fields and windy country roads.  More on that tomorrow.

We walked around Old and New Town Ronda to start the afternoon.  A lot of the homes and business are whitewashed like in Greece due to the heat.  In the late spring it starts to warm up a lot and 100 degrees is a pretty normal temperature.  For us it was a cool 65 degrees.  Pretty close to perfect.


The views from the cliff overhangs were fantastic.  The deep gorge: SpainRondogorge

The Alameda:


Found a random t-shirt out shopping.  I laughed out loud but it was too weird to buy.


The food today was delicious.  We had some salmon tapas thing that might have been the best thing I’ve eaten on the trip so far.


Tomato bread with anchovies was very photogenic and delicious.


And my new favorite cheap wine.  It costs about 15 Euros a bottle at restaurants and bars, probably a lot cheaper in the stores.  Note to self:  look for this stuff at home!


Ronda, Spain is a must-see.  Put it on the list of Spanish destinations to see!

Happy Monday!

    I love Spain, I’ve visited several times but have never been to Ronda, time to go check it out. I just love the anchovies there and paired with the pan a tomate, it’s perfect!
