Visiting Cadiz in Spain

Is like travelling in time. The place keeps loads of beautiful building, corners, details and traces of history and memories from the past.
Its monumental landmarks, very few, are intersting but less important than the landscape, the sea and the people. Fishermen still hold on with their chores.

In the afternoon on streets and "Belenes" large groups of children and young people perform the old tradition of singing flamenco villancicos in Christmas time.

Winter time is sunny and windy but with an air of openness and joy that reminds me of Christmas in Latin America.
