Just a few shots from a run I took today!

Image

Time to cross the mountains near Oria in Almeria!

Image

Image

Going through Oria......

Image

Image

Then into Albox! Into the shop and back out in double quick time! And you know why of course....1760 Tetleys for 32 Euros! 'Ave it!

Image

Image

Up to Chirivel.....then across to Velez Rubio.

Image

Image

Castles are no big deal to us Eurotrash.....but here's the one at Velez Blanco!

Image

700 years old apparently.....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next stop was the Natural Park in Maria! Here's the recreation area with families spending most of the day eating and drinking....and talking at 100 decibels.

Image

Image

Then it was back on the road again.....traffic is killing me! I gave myself a blinding headache trying to see any....

Image

Total trip around 250kms.....around 160 miles. Even managed to go onto reserve about 25 miles from home.
Couldn't remember what setting was for reserve, so I coasted to a halt and had to put my glasses on just to find it!
This getting old is no joke.

The Tetley Run. Classic...great pics as usual. Buildings 3 times as old as the USA still amaze me. I don't know if anyone here could build something that would last half as long.

Can't believe the dude visits Granada ... and doesn't spend a day touring the Alhambra? NOTHING else in Europe even comes close.
A great experience ... one of the highlights of my 4 weeks riding around Spain.
