Mother-of-the-Goddess-Elena was born and raised in Cádiz. After marrying and living way up north (Bilbao), she and the family would make their annual vacation pilgrimage to Cádiz and the beach, but she hadn’t been back in more than 25 years. Elena’s friend, Goli, was also born and raised in Cádiz and is an expert on the history, culture, and traditions. So, during our first two hours of walking, while rediscovering Elena’s mother’s childhood haunts, I received an insider’s view of this beautiful city. Come take a walk with me. (We’ll stop for food tomorrow.)
