  • there are 3 Starbuck’s within 5 minutes of our hotel
  • 9:30 ready to go on to next big adventure
  • take taxi to parking garage for $6 Euro
  • not trying to drive on the crazy tiny, narrow streets
  • don’t have to drive far
  • 11:30 arrive – Arcos de la Frontera
  • sheer cliffs
  • dramatic views
  • once again Parador is on the very top of the hill
  • 12:30 lunch here – big mixed salad – tuna sandwich & beer
  • stay cool & take siesta
  • 8:30 – dinner @ Parador – “typical” local dish of huge white beans & ham, grilled tuna steak, salad – pretty good


  • had to go to all 3 Starbuck’s to find the one that opens @ 7:30 am
  • OMG more twisty, teeny, tiny cobblestone lanes for streets
  • really, really hot!

FF (FUN-fact) – Andalucía is the home of bullfights, flamenco, gazpacho, pristine whitewashed hill towns and glamorous Mediterranean resorts.
