I really have enjoyed this trip to Spain. I think I’ve done something like 4000 Km in just three weeks. Cadiz, Albacete, Leon and Madrid have been the places I have visited. The white walls shown in the first picture are in Vejer de la Frontera. It is one of white towns in Cadiz and they are called that way for a reason. The dune picture was taken in Bolonia’s beach, also in Cadiz. I can honestly say that it’s one of the best beaches I have ever been. The windmill is in Pozohondo, Albacete, my place of birth. The fourth picture is a place in Leon province I often visited with my family in the past. Sadly now the restaurant and hotel is closed (damn economic crisis) but the views are still there. And finally, the statue picture is taken in a park in Madrid I had never visited before. El capricho is called.

I filled 2 memory cards with pictures. I have loads of editing and processing to do… 🙂

A view from Circulo de bellas artes terrace in Madrid.

It’s a place I’ve never been before, until recently, in a visit I did as a tourist. Once you go abroad, you look back at familiar places in a completely different way. The blue sky and golden light in the sunset was amazing. A bit of air pollution typical in a big city is visible, in the horizon, giving those dirty orange colours. What other places have you visited after years and found somehow different?
