So, a few weeks ago the hotel here sent us an e mail telling us how to arrive and “DO NOT ENTER THE VILLAGE AS THE STREETS ARE VERY NARROW.” So we were lucky to find a place (the last one along the road), we parked and will not move again until we leave Saturday!
Almost every car in town is scratched up on the corners or dented in the side. Very tight turns as well as narrow streets.
The town is built along a river and curves and climbs like crazy. There are homes built into existing caves; they did not dig into the rock walls, but build rock and stucco fronts and the rock is their roof. Above the rock there are olive trees!
I thought the waiter said one of the specials was “párajos revueltos” (scrambled birds???) well, I took it and it included chorizo. Turns out it was “espárragos revueltos”, asparagus with a little scrambled egg, garlic and chorizo and it was FANTASTIC. I will try this at home.
Late evening we decided to have some tapas and a drink, so we went to this area that is one tapas bar after another. We shared fried calamari tentacles and a potato salad. The tomatoes were wonderful and covered with oil and basil. The cost including 2 drinks???? $8.00 USD!
