Could not believe we slept until 11:00 a.m.! Up to scoot out the door to find the Thursday morning antique market on Feria street – can't believe we are actually finding these places!!  Sometimes with a bit more walking but generally not too bad!!  Found a die cast for Chuckles but not quite sure of age – fun though looking – had a great time with an old chap buying a piece of tile from the Roman ages - yeah right! – like the cost dropped from 15 to 5 Euro’s when his son came over! Heheh – will look good on a corner wall and great memories.  Finally found a trinket or 2 for the gals in a delightful little shop deep in La Mercarana area and R bought me a funky necklace.  By 2 pm we were starving having not eaten all day but stopped at Bobo on our square (yes, it’s left Rich NOT right!) with a couple of glasses of cerbeza and vino blanco – great Salmenejo (thicker gazpacho) mini pizza’s and staff salad of ?? greens.

Back to hotel to catch up on emails and travel blog in their business centre – sitting in shiny red chairs too funny.  Booked a Flamenco show – wish I had a pretty dress to wear like these very classy Spanish ladies!!  So beautifully slim in their flashy dresses – they are cheeky and assertive – loving the attitude!!  Can’t wait to see the show.

Odd that this blog will not interweave photo's unless there are a certain number of words so am going to add a few reflections here!!  Yesterday was the first day that we both felt travel weary.  Our thinking is that we had got away from our good veggie eating (too often it's about the food we eat!!) particularly in Cartajima where Di was primarily interested in pleasing Brit's with just a taste now and then of Andrulcian food.  But never mind - sleep and relaxing the consumption of food helps!!  And off we go again.

And what a flamenco night it was!!  Small club - tablo style - typico - with 5 main female dancers, the "hand clappers" and at times 4 classical guitar players.  Guitar players focusing on the dancers feet to keep up!  The male dancer was absolutely phenomenal - riveting!! We were not allowed to take pics obviously - during the show but have attached a couple of shots of inside the club - lots of locals so we knew we'd done well in our choice for Flamenco - El Arenal. 

Walked home again!! tired tootsies but satisfied having had a fabulous eve.
