Estoy Aqui Finalmente!

Well, I finally made it to Ubrique and it is absolutely everything I had imagined it would be - beautiful, serene, and surrounded by mountains! The people are amazing - so friendly and happy! I am currently living in the parte antigua (historic district), but the entire town is pretty ancient and rich with history. I am able to see the entire Pueblo from the kitchen window, and my bedroom overlooks la plaza del ayuntamiento and the beautiful mountains (see pic below for my exact view).
While I have already done a little exploring, I definitely plan on doing more! In fact, Fernando (who I am staying with temporarily), had to leave Ubrique this afternoon to visit an Uncle in Huelva (3 hours away). As such, I get the entier flat to myself for the next two nights, which leaves plenty of time for exploring! :-)
Well, that's all for now! Bye!

WOW! Your flat is incredible; what a fabulous location. A brisk, beautiful walk to your school, stairs and mountain hikes for exercise, spring water to drink and a fountain at the center of a lovely plaza. It sounds picture perfect. Enjoy. xoxo

Totally awesome Ash although I hope you don't get bored. I get the impression there's no mall or nightclub around. Looking forward to your posts.

Hello again, Kidlet! I'm at cousin Julie's house with your grandma. We had a nice ride and lunch today and the weather here is beautiful. Glad you got situated in your temporary digs! We're anxious to hear more from you and see your pictures. Julie, Grams and I miss your cute little face. Stay safe, Honey!
