The many New Age Travellers who seem to have settled in Orgiva have given the place a bohemian atmosphere and it also seems to be a magnet for people seeking an 'alternative' lifestyle - which all makes for great people watching! We went to check out the weekly market in Orgiva yesterday which was a bit like Kendal's (in other words not very good)! After being pushed about and elbowed in the ribs by mad old Spanish women trying to get our fruit and veg we decided we needed a de-stressing cup of, you guessed it, coffee - only to have that moment spoilt by a mad British woman trying badly to play an accordian and screeching down our ear holes. THEN, to top it all off, Alfie must have given the stray boxer that always hangs around the town the eye cos he followed us all the way down the main street constantly trying to hump him, everytime we pushed him off he jumped straight back on again and what did Alfie do about it - absolutely nothing like the true soft Labrador that he is
We have voted this campsite (Camping Orgiva) number 1 so far on our travels - it's fairly small, has brilliant clean and hot showers (just what you need after a day on the hills), lovely surroundings and a nice walk through olive, orange and lemon groves into town - AND free wireless internet connection which means we can surf away happily on our laptop in the comfort of our own campervan!
Anyway, enough rambling we have packing to do as it's back on the road again tomorrow. Not decided yet whether to have another night in Granada as we pass back through as we enjoyed it so much, but we are then heading north along the east coast towards Montserrat where we will go and visit the amazing looking monastery.
Hope everyone back home is well, catch up with us again soon, lots of love Nicky and Rob x
