News flash from Fuente Tojar

Wed. morning it was reported that the power pole to the water treatment plant was broken and in danger of collapse. The Mayor, Maria (also our host for this segment of our trip) spent the morning dealing with it before picking us up and giving us a tour. The pole can be stabilized until permanent repairs can be made. Maria was quoted as saying, "It´s always something"

So we´re out of Barcelona and into the countryside of Andalucia. Olive trees EVERYWHERE! Millions! This is the Napa Valley of Olives, and that is important to olive us.

Posting this from Ubeda, road trip!
