My trip to the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata yesterday was to make contacts regarding property to rent. It was 15 years since my last brief visit and 20 since I regularly went there but everybody seemed to recognise me. I was even told by a strapping young lad running a bar that he was a toddler when he last saw me. I was pleased when the locals in the villages of Las Negras and Las Hortichuelas told me I had not changed. Most of them have. The 15 years have not been kind to their waistlines.
Here are some photos. The arid landscape is very different from the vega of Granada. The light and colours are very intense and the architecture, with the white, flat-roofed houses reminiscent of Morrocco.
