Rhonda 12.28.04

The Rhonda Viaduct stands in a huge gorge in Rhonda. An amazing structure in an amazing landscape. Bullfighting apparently originated here. I did not see any Bulls, I think they were hibernating, it was cold there, I actually had to buy a hat and wool socks.

I reccommend to everyone this hostel. A great Christmas day. We drank and ate all day long. My favorite place I have stayed on my trip. I will never forget everyone that stayed there, dear friends. The scarf I recieved from Santa still keeps me warm. I stayed on the couch and watch movie for a week after Morocco, I was so exhausted.

The streets in Chechaoenne are exagerated in form to accomodate the steep terrain and the public spaces programatic needs. Streets become at points narrow as the body and then bulge to accomodate the needs of a neighborhood oven.
