As stated previously, here are some additional photos from my day trip to the Alpujarras.

Roadside Cafe on the way to Pampaneira

Homage to Don Augustus for his ceramic murals. The sign itself is an example of a ceramic mural

Missed you at the harvest- Sharon fruit or Persimmon to others.

Sick of having their photo taken.

Right this way please.

It says end of the road, but you can keep going.

Casa Fina- You can stay here

The type of finish on this wall is called Capa Fina- translation is Fine Layer.

And this is it for the photos on the road trip.  Remember, there are plenty of economical places to stay, just google accommodation Las Alpujarras.

Happy New Year all, I am sorry for starting so late, but a major electrical  storm on the 22nd of December did major damage to computers all over town, our personal  internet was only just restored on the 8th of January. Ugh!

Welcome to 2011, here we go!

On the 21st of December my good friend Diana and I took a day trip up to the Alpujarras for some fabulous site seeing, it was a beautiful day and I for one thoroughly enjoyed it.  Thanks Di!

We visited Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira, three of the prettiest little mountain villages  in the area, to get there, just head up the Granada road and follow the signs for Orjiva and then follow the signs North East then the sign for the 3 villages, very easy to get to.  Enjoy.

In the town of Pampaneira, I am guessing that that is a beautiful climbing wisteria.

The handmade rugs of Pampaneira

Pampineira, you can tell they got a lot of rain and run off by run off canal down the center of the street.

Typical chimney style special to this area.

Around every corner something interesting to see.

Peppers, Chorizo, Blood Sausage and Laundry...I like it!

I took over 300 photos on this short day trip, so many more to show you, but enough for today. ­čÖé
