The TV in the breakfast room showed the weather being mostly rainy, but the area south of the Sierra Nevada showed sunshine. At 7:20 I was already moving on the highway leading south, determined to get there within an hour. I chose a small road which was basically following the border of the natural park. That turned out to be a perfect choice with little traffic and literally no straights. It took me half a day to do that road, ending somewhere near Almeria.
From here my next way point was the Tabernas Desert. This area had been used for a lot of movies, including A Fistful of Dollars or Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Some sets are still being used, others are preserved as a tourist attraction.
Using only secondary roads I continued northwards and ended up somewhere near Murcia for the night. I can't remember when I had last gone through that many curves in one day.
Ok, I'm a bit busy with work and may take a break for a few days.
