Sunburn through the vents

Tuesday, July 06, 2004


In one day we passed the 400 mark without too much effort. Probably down to the massage last nite, the overcast weather, the straight roads - and the main reason without much doubt - we are actually getting used to this. Touching the southern most coast of spain, we have seen how tourism has completely fucked up a once beautiful area. High rise apartments splatter the horizon like the worst shanty towns. Its unclear to me how anyone staying here could call it a holiday. Who's to blame, the tourist for chasing 'El dorado' or the spaniards for following their field of dreams: 'build it and they will come'. I have high hopes for tomorrow and Almeria - where I can continue my film theme. This is our last nite in Granada, and the journey home really starts tomorrow.
