Andalucia, Spain

I am very fortunate that I have been to the southern part of Spain a few times. It is a wonderful place to be. My only complain is that the food is so Great that I always come home in need of a major weight loss.
We were in Granada, Seville, Porto Santa Maria, Cadiz, and Ronda. All are magnificent. I have great memories and only a few photos.
We were there for Holly Week and Easter. This is an event not to be missed in these cities. I am so glad we had a chance to see it, even with so many cancellations of processions due to rain.
We did rent a car for some of our trips; but I love the AVE, which are the high velocity trains in Spain.

My quilt note here is that I found a very nice quilt store in Granada. It is: Patchwork Teresa Sako. Editor note: this store has moved in 2015, so the link below should send you to the correct address:
