Lebrija Spain

I think I have hit a gold mine for having a good time 'a feel good place' that no money can buy, traditional with country people. The center of Lebrija is still very much untouched with the outer you can find new houses and supermarkets. 

Where I camped first night, the friendly people of the hotel let me camp outside. I could not find my host when I arrived so I stopped at this hotel for information had a beer and hit the sack after a long day driving.

Breakfast at my wwoof host. fresh eggs and organic bread

Walked this street after work, could hear the noise coming from the bar

Tasca "el chocazo" Bar. We first had a beer than a wine Solera  a type of Sherry. 
This bar gave me a good feeling and made me more than happy, to be with the local people of Lebrija. Also a local girl brought home cooked food to share: shellfish  potatoes cooked in olive oil. The man on the left is the local olive oil producer. 

Where I am staying

Tring snails for the first time!
