A couple of weeks back I talked about gazpacho, a typical Andalusian cold tomato soup. This week I have a second one for you.

For those of you unfamiliar with Andalusia, it is the southern most region of Spain and also one of the largest. It is replete with must-visit places, be they historical and man-made or forged by nature.

I have visited the region a few times as a tourist and was also fortunate enough for a while to manage a team of people in the region. I still recall installing an IT system in a hospital in Marbella. From time to time I would take a few minutes’ break in the canteen on the topmost floor, with the spectacular views of the coast on one side and the mountains on the other………..

I have spent time in places like Marbella, Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. The latter is a really special place and I would seriously suggest that it should be on everyone’s bucket list, and somewhere near the top! The Alhambra and the Generalife in Granada are something really special. They are both beautiful places to visit and each give a good view of the other.

Having said all the above, I thought I would mention a less known town not far from Marbella. It is one of my favourite places and is called Ronda.
