Cacéres, Spain (Cacéres, España)
For some inexplicable reason, on the day we visited Cacéres, Yannick had a strong hankering for churros. By pure chance, the parking space we found happened to be on the same road as a churreria! However, it was in the process of closing its doors for the day, so we were foiled.
The Visigoths who had overrun this area of Spain were forced out by the Moors in the 8th-century. Remnants of this past could be heard in a very vocal busker who strummed away at his guitar and belted out a tune. While sounding very Spanish, it also reminded us of the chants of prayer that blare from the top of minarets. He played with much gusto.
The next town on our itinerary was Trujillo. Both Cacéres and Trujillo are famous for the conquistadors who left their hometowns to make names for themselves in the New World. (As well as GOLD, mountains of it! And it's mine, mine, miiiiine! Don't mind me, I watched Pocahontas too often as a child. And as an adult.) Stay tuned for some conquistadorial action next time on Teh Travels!
