I went to Jerez de la Frontera as a day trip from Sevilla. I picked the wrong day. I wanted to go see the royal equestrian school, and taste some sherry. But the school wasnt open, not even to wander around in, and all the sherry tasting places were closed. All i got were a few pictures, overcharged for some tapas, locked in a park (see a trend?), and dirt in my eyes.
Im sure it would have been a grand town if i had seen the horses, then got to taste sherry in the ´noon!
Here was a giant man statue by the bus station.
Here were the only horses I saw... the first on the main street, the second in the alcazar.
This was the catherdral in Jerez, next to the alcazar. and following is a typical street in Jerez.
I did see what had to have been the biggest wine TREE?? ever
And, on the way out, i had to laugh... did you ever wonder how they got concrete to the top of a building?
So, that was my day in Jerez. I should have gone to tarifa for sure. Or picked a different day. but i didnt have an alarm clock. How have i made it this far? I woke up at 7 today to catch a bus with no alarm.. and from seville i woke up at like... 5:45 to get my bus to lagos. yes i AM crazy. and hardcore. maybe. just a little.
