Not the Sunny Side of the Street….


Plaza de San Juan de Dios in Cadiz, with a back drop of the rather grand Municipal Offices was certainly  a very ‘hot spot’ on our visit.  So it is not surprising that the crowds gathered in the shade.

Note the crowd in the far left.  Despite the heat, which even in the shade was hovering just above 37c,  a Flamenco Dancer and Singer was entertaining a large audience.  Nor was in just a 5 minute gig….  Sweat and passion for over an hour.


It was a great day in Cadiz,  we didn’t want to leave –  apart from the grandeur of the City, its Streets ,  its twin Water Fronts,  Cafes and open spaces, it was unexpected moments, as above, that made it special and added some real Spanish flavour.

We would like to get back to Cadiz….. I do wonder if we will.

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
