Peggy and Mark do not Skip one Single km which can be made on our bikes. Others reach the scenic village by taxi (its a restday thou!)
The canyon itself is these Houses roofs and walls
Flying back towards Ronda, where there is still so much to see and to enjoy!
Maybe a dip into the Pool?
Is there a better picture for how we feel...?

Whilst some people were having a bike ride around Ronda, Bill, Susan and Chris did have a nice walk through the city and watching the local sights.

First of all, the bullfight arena
You can still see the blood in the sand, from this Septembers bullfights...
