... of the gorge unattainable from on high. Even after the long walk back up we were glad we did it. There was a 3 mile walk down that was to have the best view of the gorge and bridges, but considering it would also be 3 miles back up, we passed on that one.
Our dinner tonight was at a small neighborhood fish place and we kept it light...especially because on the way home this afternoon we feasted on pastries from a delicious little pastry shop we happened to walk by.
... Still less than Buzz's fanta. Total was very reasonable at 22€. I left a 2€ coin on the table. First the owner tried to give it back to me, then when he gave it to the waitress who was shocked, he said "estado unido". In other words...typical Americans! I guess tipping is another thing we haven't gotten the hang of, none or 5% is the norm. Maybe in the next month we'll learn.
Steve went for a run in the morning, then we had our now usual Tosta y Jambon e Tomat and Cafe con leche for breakfast. Decided to go and have a look at the Alcazar, even though we have seen quite a few things so far... Anyway, we were glad we did. Firstly, it was free - not sure if it was because it was so early or if it was just a free day, that the Spanish sometimes have. Secondly, it really was amazing. Lovely building, but the gardens ...
... drive was easy on very smooth and well marked roads and our VW Golf tdi diesel is a great car. Jane is our GPS. She is British, but her directions are clear and we can understand her and she got us to our destination without a missed turn.

... Dale likes different foods...
Most of the shops were closed, either because it was Sunday or it was siesta time (shops closed from 2-4m) so we didn't buy anything.
The evening was very quiet - a tapas dinner again - and then researching our next day's trip to Seville. The complex has 1 internet station at the main reception building. We booked a hotel in Seville and plan to spend the next 2 days exploring Seville.
