Driving Over Lemons: An Optimist in Andalucia


Chris Stewart transports us to Las Alpujarras, a region south of Granada, and into a series of misadventures with an engaging mix of farmers and shepherds, New Age travellers and ex-pats.  The hero of the piece, however, is their farm, El Valero - a bright patch of mountain studded with olive, almond and lemon groves.  

What better place to set up home with their menagerie of dogs, cats, chickens, doves and a flock of wayward sheep?
