Cielo with Ibex

... and there are two huge bucks staring up at me, perhaps only 40 metres away. They don't seem a bit bothered by me and stand around long enough to enable me to get some of the best ibex shots I've ever had. I can only think that they're here today because the mountainside is deserted apart from me - a greater number of walkers might have persuaded them to go somewhere else.

Espana Profunda and Bob Esponga

... out and settled for a tourist-sized pot.

I had been recommended to visit Orgiva which is a honey-pot (pun intentional) for hippies, and they were right. I've never seen so many bad dreadlocks on white people. A local here in Alhama recommended that I visit Trevelez, which is the highest town in the whole of Spain, but it was a hairy drive.
