Ronda Gastronomy & On to Córdoba

Aloha Everyone,

Either I have become more adventurous or J.J. and I were surrounded by restaurants offering some amazing food in Ronda. We had memorable meals in this city. Here are some examples:

J.J.’s meat tapa plate

My vegetable tapa plate - all except for the 3 potato based tapas were excellent

My grilled rack of lamb with vegetables was welcomed by J.J.

J.J.’s cold tapa plate

J.J.’s grilled squid too unusual for my taste, but he said it was very good!

J.J.’s grilled leg of lamb

My oxtail dish, Andalusia’s specialty

We arrived in Córdoba this afternoon. Our habitation (room) is actually one bedroom within a clean, well-maintained modern apartment unit owned by Carmen. Outgoing and gregarious, Carmen invited us to sit at the dining table and she took out one brochure after another of “must see” places in Córdoba.

The upside of staying here is we will get a little taste of Spanish life through Carmen and her bachelor son, Juan Carlos. The mother and son have their individual ensuite, but share the kitchen and other living spaces. The downside is sharing of a bathroom with possible other guests. Interesting situation which J.J. and I will accept as adding another facet to our traveling experience.

Aloha -- Cathi
