Cadiz, Spain

Our next stop was a short one...after our tour (a walking tour which included a flamenco show and some traditional tapas) all the shops closed for siesta...a 3 hour siesta, mind you. Doesn't anyone work around here?




Orange trees can be found all over the city..but we hear they're quite bitter- thus they remain in the trees.

After



Cadiz's oldest tree- it's 500 years old- that doesn't seem "that" old, am I wrong?

I agree, siesta's are totally annoying for foreign visitors. Spain doesn't really accommodate a 8am to 9pm schedule. However, if you would like to dance from 12am until sunrise you have found just the right place to do so!...Or if you don't mind eating dinner at 10pm, you'll find the restaurants to be busy and enjoyable.

But in middle of the day...nothing. Just find somewhere quiet to rest and read. I read the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy during my trip to Spain.

I love the video you posted and your pictures are amazing (very talented)! Thanks for diligently blogging.

jeff & jenny, we got your postcard yesterday...we loved it, and we're missing you guys!! so glad we can share your trip with you here. your photos are wonderful...

wanted to let you know, too, that i'm re-reading Frederick Buechner's The Sacred Journey: A Memoir of Early Days, and in this book he describes a couple years of his childhood when he lived in Bermuda... he calls it his "Oz", and described the beauty of that particular place so wonderfully, in such vivid detail. His descriptions were similar to your own in ways. It made me think of you! :)

We're looking forward to your next post! hope you're getting some good sleep! love you both!
