Citroen at the Lakes!

Post by XTreme »

Chatting with a couple of the guys in Intros I was telling them about where I've lived for the past 13 years.

It's a very small town called Huescar in the province of Granada in Southern Spain.

And this is what the area around me looks like! These were taken this afternoon......temps of about 36C

cor, anyone for a Swim. Quite different to the UK, but no less beautiful.

There doesn't seem to be anyone around despite it being a Sunday afternoon, are these areas not open to the Public?

You've noticed the absence of people then? :-D

Everybody has said that for years on Facebook looking at my pics......even in the centre of town it's often deserted.

We were out driving for about an hour today.....think we saw 3 or 4 cars at most. Sunday morning you won't even see one car.

Very, very different to Britain......lots of open space and very few people!

Nice pics the turquoise lakes remind me of a region of provence in France near St Andre les Alpes, Gorge Du Verdon, very inviting!

Tribute to the region of Granada....just posted the original of the song from 1932 in "The Pickled Egg Jukebox! (written by a Mexican, and sung by a Mexican tenor.)
