Walk through Jerez - a Flamenco Journey 

Hope people enjoy this walk through, I did it pretty much off the cuff so to speak, one afternoon I was free after a lesson and on the way to meet up with some friends in plaza plateros for some food and drink.

thanks all for the kind feedback.

next time i'm back, i'm going to try and do a few interviews with a few teachers. (Working on my conversational Spanish quite a lot lately)

Also, hope to a walk around barrio santhiago and talk about a few of the areas of interest.

In 2007 our hotel was across the street from the Sandeman bodega. Jerez is very confusing to navigate by car, due to one-way streets, pedestrian areas and so on. When returning from a trip to the surroundings we invariably got lost. It didn't take long to realize all we had to do was to drive around until we passed downwind from the Sandeman bodega, then follow the scent trail as best we could upwind to the hotel.

Thanks Henry! I miss Jerez desperately at this point and I was only there a little more than a week.
One night there I fell asleep on the couch by the window and woke up to a little girl singing bulerias while walking with her mom at 3am, I woke my girlfriend at the time up and dragged her to the window to listen, it was so perfectly appropriate I nearly cried. That city definitely has a magic to it.

Palmera Plaza? Stayed there too on our first ever trip to Jerez. Lovely hotel but closed a couple of years ago sadly.

To my mind, jerez has the finest aroma of all wines. Whether the aroma in a bodega or that of a freshly poured jerez in a copita, nothing beats it. The aroma, along with the taste, is exquisite. I think the "solera" system of production, whereby each level of barrels contributes to the next lower level as jerez is taken from the bottom level, has a great deal to do with both the aroma and taste. Also, that is why it is so important to drink jerez from a true copita, rather than the "Old Fashion" glasses in which so many restaurants serve it. The copita's shape funnels the aroma to the narrower rim.
