... s breakfast today. Last night we went to the restaurant recommended by the hotel. Buzz & I always laugh when we get these recommendations saying its the hotel owner's brother's restaurant that they recommend us to and this time it was.

... walk underneath the bridge and take you to some pretty amazing lookouts over the valley. While in ronda we also explored Plaza de Toros. The oldest and one of the most highly regarded of Spain's bull rings. The history around bullfighting is so fascinating, often misunderstood by tourists. I was reading a book on bullfighting by ernest hummingway called death in the afternoon which gave me a very valuable insight into the values of ...
