Have you been to Arcos De La Frontera? It is another Andulucian town that is in a similar location. It was spectacular, we watched the Tree Kings Parade and Festival wind through the city streets. At one point the floats got stuck because the streets were so narrow. Good times!

It actually doesnt feel southern since the only inhabitants of the town are mostly hippies and artsy people. It feels more like a tiny version of San Francisco. Def not southern at all. In fact, its the place where I go to whenever I need to feel some sense of civility in this state.

That town looks so lovely, how far is it from Table Rock Lake?



This has been a great thread. I have been considering a trip to Europe at the end of August, and I think this thread just pushed me over that cliff.

That looks like what the little town Bill Bryson looks for in The Lost Contient would look like. What is it, Happiness? Joy? It's something really nice anyway.

The picture of the small wooden suspension bridge is pretty much at the very very western end of Table Rock Lake but that lake is freakin huge. It goes through two states.
