A postcard from Spain

I would have liked to hop on a plane to Malaga then drive up into the Andalucian mountains and buy a real postcard from Ronda, but you know how it is... Real life does have this habit of getting in the way of art sometimes.

Besides, there's plenty of Spain to be had in England's green and pleasant (damp and dreary) land if you put your mind to it. Music is great transportation. I slipped on some flamenco passion and before I knew it I was peering over the shoulder of my character X as she wrote her first message to the equally mysterious Y while sitting in a window alcove of a 17th century hotel in Andalucia.

What was she writing and to whom?
If you missed the beginning of their journey last week then you can revisit their story here and on Darcy's blog where over fifty similar stories began their first chapters last week.

  10. we spent Christmas in Gaucin two years ago - I would spend christmas there every year, but the kids like to have time in the uK with family here too, Ronda is breathtaking, and if you go on Christmas eve, it is sooo lacking in tourists, we adopted a person's mother for the day (local guide at no cost thing) and she took us around, telling us the most incredible stories, it was only when we 'returned her' to the restaurant we had had breakfast in that we realised she was a little senile and her children had sent out search parties looking for 'moms gone missing again'

    Gorgeous card,

    Dx
