so not only did we arrive during the big 2 week feria festival of vejer, but also to a stage of la vuelta, the big cycling event throughout spain. feria ends tonight and then the crowds arrive again for the cyclists tomorrow! so much for a peaceful quiet holiday! it can be fun, but i love our town out of season when its sleepy. we always visit restaurant casa francisco in el palmar and have watched it change throughout the years – from simple rustic spanish seafood, to more elaborate dishes, but it seems to have reverted back to a more simpler seafood menu, concentrating on the local tuna and paella. i think that paella there is one of the best in the area.
