Yesterday Mackenzie and I took a break from la playa because it was a little bit overcast. We went to the large Corte Ingles and Hipercor (which is kind of like a Target here) and looked around, got some books to read on the beach in Spanish, and some weird flavored Pringles (Ash and Kay wait till you try these…). We also got our bus tickets for Tarifa! Also, that night there was a very long and Catholic procession for the Festival de Carmen. We got to see the Virgin Mary in a parade and there was a marching band following behind it, and also priests and people that looked like the Knights of Columbus, it was very cool to see and very cultural :).
Today we took a boat to the port of Santa Maria and we toured a castle/fortress that also had a wine-tasting room inside. We all tasted four different types of sherry, the majority of us were not the biggest fans haha. After taking the boat back to Cadiz, Mackenzie and I went to the open-air public market where they sell a lot of fresh fish and fruit. Also, the Italians left today, sadly! We really enjoyed their company in the house!
Tomorrow we head to Tarifa; very excited for clear blue waters and large beaches!
