... singing out front of a cafe. He didnīt have a noticeable accent, so I stopped to talk to him and listen to him play. We hung out at a cafe until they kicked us out. Turns out heīs from England. He writes his own music. He teaches guitar, Spanish and English. He was one of the most interesting people I have met.
... swirls that were demanded to capture the flamenco dresses and big hair we saw last night! Every town has a Roma-Maria spring festival in which the townfolk groom both themselves and their horses and then gypsy wedding style parade into the country for a massive picnic and beery party! Algondanales hosted at least 50 horses and hundreds of parading beauties in the village and we were lucky enough to have ring side seats in our favourite cafe and meet some lovely friends of Liz and ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHipotels Hotel Sherry Park Jerez De La Frontera
An excellent hotel which was very good value. It was only a short walk from the Royal Andalusian Riding School and Sandemans and ideal for exploring the old city on foot. Our room was spacious and very clean, the bathroom had a great shower. We were impressed by the beautiful garden setting and the size of the swimming pool, which was great to relax in after a morning in the city. We enjoyed the extensive breakfast buffet. There was also an evening choice of buffet or a la carte restaurant. Staff were kind and helpful and we hope to revisit soon.
