The old Puerta de Jerez, into the old town of Tarifa
back in Tarifa, we enjoyed a little relaxing time with tasty ham and salami and crackers and wine from Seville on our little deck, overlooking the old town of Tarifa. We wandered the streets a little bit. The old town of Tarifa is very lovely with shops which are not touristy although I am sure most of their businesses is for tourists. They also have a lot of restaurants and bars tucked away in the side streets. Although even the big street is not very big, except the one right in front of the cathedral. In front of the cathedral  they had blocked off the sidewalk from the street so they can have the procession later. For dinner, we decided to try the Italian restaurant on the Paseo right outside the city wall. The pasta and pizza were very good indeed! At dinner the procession went by the back of the restaurant. After dinner, we went back to the apartment to get my camera and tripod, and went back out to catch the procession. We decided it was the same 2 floats as they had the night before, being a small town, not too surprising. It was much easier to see the procession up close in Tarifa, especially on the side streets. We wathced and followed the procession back to the cathedral, and the floats went back inside with great fanfare.
