We set out for Cadiz this morning and met very slow traffic through the main road of the peninsular, Avenida de Andalucia. Eventually we discovered the cause....and impromptu festivo for the Virgen de Rocio.
Hundreds of women, in all their Andalucian finery, were following a small band of male musicians and some floral decorated floats. It was impossible to park, so we abandoned our attempt to visit the Tax office and went on to nearby Jerez. The jacaranda trees are in full bloom down leafy avenues, so especially for Nature Girl, here they are:
