Travel to Cartajima, Spain
Sophia is on a two-week vacation from school so we decided to come to Spain for part of it. Kenny and I studied here for a year in college but Sophia has never been. And, our exposure to Andalucia in the south was limited to a bus trip. We found a good flight on RyanAir and a place to stay that boasts a vegan chef, so here we are in Cartajima. We twisted and turned up a mountain until we came to this small, remote, beautiful village where all of the buildings are white with red roofs.
We have access to a wonderful rooftop terrace which offers splendid views.
I did yoga out here after dinner. Not good to practice with a full stomach but the timing was otherwise perfect. I saw the first stars come out, and then I saw a shooting star, and then a full moon rose over the mountains. It was absolutely perfect.
This is part of the beautiful dinner that was sitting in my stomach during yoga. Eggplant stuffed with pine nuts and dried cherries with a red wine reduction, mashed potatoes, and some veggies.
Earlier in the day we briefly hit the beach at Marbella to make our Sophia happy. And happy she was!
It was a delightful beginning to what I hope will be a wonderful trip. Now if we could just stop peppering our Spanish with German!
