Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

P’s family owns a home in a small village in northeastern Spain.  The closest big town La Bisbal d’Empordà, which we had taken to calling “L’Abysmal” because we’d only ever seen the touristy bits — the ceramics shops and the grocery stores, mostly.

One evening, when Seve was about nine months old, we drove into town for a late café con leche.  Having seen parts of it that were completely foreign to us, and seeing it quite literally in a different light, we never called it “L’Abysmal” again.

  1. Beautiful!!!

  2. Don’t you love going where the tourists don’t go! It’s great to see beyond the souvenir shops and walk the out of the way streets. I always want to peer inside the windows and see what the people are doing, but I just can’t bring myself to be such a sticky beak.

    • I love, love, love, going where the locals go, especially supermarkets and drug stores. I can’t believe it took us so many trips to finally make it *into* town …

  3. I love this scene… so atypical of most places we visit. ;-)

    • It was actually really busy in the cafes … just that all of the action was behind me when I was taking the photo. I love that contrast of busy/buzzy and empty/quiet.

  4. Nice shot. Reminds me of a movie set – but better.

  5. Beautiful shot – the lights are so pretty
