Friday 17th March



Jerez is a lovely city full of faded elegance and charm. Around every corner you can see signs of its former glory and can only imagine what it would have to live here a hundred or so years ago.


There are many narrow streets on which you don’t expect to see cars hurtling down, and you have to be fairly agile to avoid them.


I saw many names that I got to know really well whilst running an off licence, it was a shame I was driving as you could do tours of these sherry producing bodegas.


Around every corner there was either a bodega, a crumbling church, a deserted plaza or a packed tapas bar.


Whilst we were there we did have the occasion to stop and quality control some of the local tapas, they were lovely, I think it’s a great idea to be able to try a selection of the regional dishes.


Jane always manages to make friends with the locals, although I’m not altogether sure that they understand her !


So we left Jerez with a distinct feeling that we wanted to return, as there was so much more to see. Next time we will catch the train, then I can try the sherry!

    Yet another fascinating place. I love the fact that there are always so many tree lined plazas in Spain, places to relax and shelter from the sun, and people watch as well.
