On the subject of Global warming and what part we play – I found this item very interesting. Worth reading to the end… http://www.hoover.org/publications/digest/3460191.html
Where would you expect to find the best old Western town? Somewhere in the States? Well, apparently not! Instead you might look at Southern Spain! What better way to spend a 40 degrees C afternoon than plodding around in the desert and that’s how we spent our day today at mini-hollywood near Almeria.
For more information on what was one a film-set but which is now an altogether excellent theme-park called Mini-Hollywood, see my brief write-up at our sister website or if you’re travelling in Spain – Carretera Nacional 340 – Km. 4,64, Desierto de Tabernas, Tabernas, Almeria in Spain. Here’s a short series of slides/video scenes I put together… “A trip to Mini-Hollywood”. Click the centre arrow to start the ball rolling.
Check out also the Spanish site for our trip to the excellent Monasterio De Santa Eulalia in Aledo, Totano – great place to visit and stay!
