... had a walk in the Albayzin, the area of the town that was heavily Moors and Moroccan in style and seemed to be more Moroccan then Tangier had been. We decided to go into a restaurant there and try and get ourselves a decent tagine dish instead of the pap we'd had in Tangier.

This blog post is not to document any new traveling I have done outside of Tarragona, but rather just to tell how much more I have discovered in Tarragona. Tarragona is a small city, full of history, but small enough that you could see all of the main attractions in just a short weekend trip.

... was looking around and we finally found the source. Up on a balcony, high above Carrer Major was a lone trumpeter. He treated us to a bit of Amparito, some more Paquito and some other odds and ends. Within seconds this one man had made thousands of new friends and he received a great ovation when he finished.

The eagle appeared at the top of the steps (just listen for the cheers) and settled down, giving the impression that it was surveying the scene in a magisterial ...
