Our time in Portugal is coming to an end and we will miss Maria's family.
After leaving Seville we quickly travelled across to Badajoz on the Spanish - Portuguese border. After the plains around Seville the Autovia rose quickly up onto a range of low mountains then gradually through hills covered with olive trees under which we saw the odd sheep, then gradually on down to paddocks with the famed black iberico pigs eating away.
