Why do we have to be here this particular weekend? We wonder about all the motorbikes. Grand Prix of Spain in Jerez de la Frontera – that’s why! All bike fans of Spain seem to be here! Why we don’t keep going? Because next week is Feria in Jerez and we want to see that.

Part from us are only Spanish camper on the huge parking place, no German or other European tourists here.  The city is humming and not only by bikers! It is not easy to get a free table on Plaza Cabildo. But since we eat earlier than the Spaniards we are lucky and have some wonderful tapas together with two glases of Manzanilla, the typical kind of Sherry produced here.
