... commuting to the big city seems to be the only option. I give them a CD, cheered by this little opportunity to bond with the locals here in a back alley in an anonymous town in Andalucia.

We head towards the Puerto de Competa and its marble quarry (seemingly abandoned at the moment) and then turn downwards and to our right (and back towards the car at last) to the Puerto Blanquillo. By now, I'm running short of water and the breeze ...
