Posted By Dorrit, Coen, Sophie, Marlies & Leonie

it has been a while but I'll write a bit more on how we are doing.
Everything is fine with us. Marlies starts only wanting to eat what we are eating and Sophie still takes her Flamenco dress to bed. Both girls seem to have fun and us parents are enjoying this daily spectacle.
After leaving Cordoba we headed for the next big city, Sevilla.
 Furnished with monuments, fine arts, flamenco singers and orange trees everywhere, Sevilla was a real pleasure to stay a few days. We visited the Alcazar, enjoyed tapas for lunch and we walked through Seville's Medieval Jewish quarter with it's windings little streets and plazas perfumed with orange blossom. 
Marlies enjoyed driving in the local busses; no matter how rough the ride, close to mummy everything is fun.  As a treat for all of us we bought tickets for a flamenco show at night. Sophie was soo much inspired by the show and the music that she couldn't help it anymore and danced during the whole show right next to the stage. It was a very very nice evening. Thanks Ute for all the theater activities in the kindergarten.
From the White Town Olvera, that used to be a bandit refuge and offers a great view when approaching from downhill, we passed on to Ronda. This is hard work for the car as the roads are winding up and down in this fine mountain scenery. The majestic bridge Puente Nuevo connects the two parts of this White Town that are devided by a stunning gorge. The girls are interested in the horse carriages but we wait for this until we get to Morocco. In order to take a few days of rest on the beach, clean and fill up supplies, we directly drove to Tarifa, a relaxed surf-dude town with an old fort and arabic like little streets at the southernmost  point of Spain. From here the ferries bring you to Morocco. A campsite with a perfect playground for Sophie. Unfortunately the exessive winds (8 beaufort) does not allow the ferries to sail out. As the wind literally blew a plate off the table, we decided to escape from the wind and wait somewhere on a warm place for the ferries to sail again.
