Still progressing to the next big cities we were trying to enjoy the country side. Unfortunately there was one principle crop along the way. Olive trees as far as the eye can see and not one yellow crested cockatoo or pink and grey galah in sight. Ubeda did have some interesting renaissance buildings but of course ...
... maybe it was because we nearly ran them over barreling down the tiny lanes.
The lanes in Ubeda are narrow, but they are meant to accommodate both vehicles and pedestrians. The truth is that only one has a chance at a time. I’m thankful that there are no electric cars in the town as the engine noise was the only thing that warned us. Some of the cars were going so fast we had to scurry and stuff ourselves in a doorway to avoid becoming road ...
... correspond to
morning and afternoon as most of us know it. Manana is like the first opening
time of day for businesses and runs until 1:00 or 2:00 P.M. when things break
for a while for lunch and siesta. The tarde runs from around 4:00 or 5:00 to
around 8:00 or 9:00. Anwway, I was in Baeza for the very quiet tarde before
heading back to Jaen for the night. I’m glad I visited Baeza second for ...
... most important men in Ubeda in that era. Also notable is
the collegiate church of Santa Maria de los Reales Alcazares. A couple of the
old palaces can be visited but have such limited weekday hours, in one case one
guided tour each day, that they didn’t fit well into my itinerary. Overall
Ubeda is a pleasant town and evidence that there’s more to interesting
architecture in Andalusia than just the legacy of the Moors.
... We both ordered main courses we were not sure about. I had a local pork dish. While good, the whole meal was more than I needed. We discussed lots of travel topics in our very comfortable chairs. A cafe con leche finished things off [30E]. Need to hit an ATM machine in Granada. It was a sort of relaxed meal I will remember for a long time.
Back home c 2330, also later than I wanted to be. The blog will have to wait until manana.
