As in the last few segments of our travel in the southwest part of Spain, there were lots of olive trees along the road. As we drove past the small town of Santa Elena (which I only knew from looking at the map), we were leaving Andalucia and into Castilla-La Mancha we started going up into some mountains, and near the border there was a rest stop, with a stop and a parking lot, and we thought maybe a view of the mountain pass we just drove through, so we pulled off the road and looked out the back of the store and restaurant, there was a view of the pass, and it was pretty. It was a nice little break from the driving.
Then we hit some traffic which was really the only one we hit while driving all over Spain, people apparently going back to Madrid from wherever they were vacationing over the Holy Week. Luckily we were not going to Madrid today, so we turned off the highway when we could and went to Don Quixote country to see the windmills.
