El Camino

By AndrewForbes

All terrain Segway!

We've arrived in the province of Huelva, in the west of Andalucía.
This afternoon we re-discovered the fascinating wild west style hamlet of El Rocio on special all-terrain Segways!
The town is built on the edge of the immense La Doñana National Park, and it's sandy streets are lined with wooden rails where you can tie up your horse! I'm a little more 21st century!
I'm in front of an original thatched cottage, and the leafy branch to the left belongs to a huge 800 year old olive tree.
Search online and you'll see that El Rocio is home to Spain's biggest annual Romeria, when almost a million people come here for a celebration or in the name of the Virgin del Rocio.

Next week I'll post images of the cathedral etc on my blog.
