Travel Blogs from Ubeda
... opening hours always catch us out. Even tourist offices seem to have very varied hours sometimes closing 11 to 5 sometimes only open 10 to 2. Pat is finding the way in which he should ask for a beer is also highly varied from person to person.. Sometimes there is one late lisp, one early lisp or two lisps in the word. ...

hike that I felt entitled to award myself with a beer at the next door parador’s
(government-run castle hotel) bar. I decided to make the olives that came as
tapas with my beer my dinner.
