Callejon Techado

This little covered alleyway has always fascinated me. I have never had the nerve to drive up it but whilst I was stood here attempting to sketch, at least 5 cars passed me; I had to jump in the doorway on the right! Most of them looked at me in amazement (why would anyone stand there?! Crazy foreign woman…) butย  I did get a couple of cheerful waves. The name of the street actually means covered alley. There was a real contrast of bright sunshine at the top and a shadowy tunnel which I have tried to capture ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a photo I took from the other end. As you can see by the windows with blinds, somebody must be living over there…

  2. Your drawings really evoke Spain for me.. going back in 2 weeks for a good few months and I can’t wait! I’m on the other side of Andalucia though, between Seville and Cadiz but in a small town

  3. I enjoyed this one, reminded me of the little alleys all over Cyprus and Israel. Guess I need to visit Spain as well. Hopefully soon. Have you heard of the Camino Santiago? Would love to make the pilgrimage myself. I’ve found that I can start just outside of Moscow. It would make the journey a lot longer, but then it would be twice as interesting.
