From Andalucia to South America...

Well, Avenida Andalucia to Calle Bolivia, that is. We're on the move this week.
Cesar has already brought a big van full of our things, including our very own beds - hurray - from Leon. And apart from realising that our house in England was more spacious than we gave it credit for, we've managed to pucker most of our stuff into this newly rented house in a quieter area of town. It feels cooler too - fewer cars passing by and up a slight hill. It's not perfect but we think it will be better.

And we're in an area named for the countries of Central and South America ....

 ....more or less! Because tucked in amongst all these streets (and I didn't photograph Mexico, Cuba or Paraguay) I found this one....

I'm pretty sure this is just a geographical mistake. Heavens, they don't even speak Spanish in Canada!
But it amuses me.
Maybe it's because it looks like a Spanish word - lots of words end in 'ada'... maybe.

I'd love to hear why you think it's included.


  1. Can't answer the riddle, I'm afraid, Annie, but just want to wish you all the very best in your new house.

  2. Hello Annie

    I would love to live in a neighbourhood with these blue and white street signs - so much prettier than the boring black and white enamelled signs we have.

    Hope you'll be happy in your new home.


  3. Thank you Perpetua, thank you Anna. The street signs are nice, I grant you, but the houses in Andalucia are not a patch on houses in other areas of Spain - and certainly we've a long way to go to match what we've seen of both (sorry,some of, P!) your lovely homes! We'll get there but it will take us a while. In the meantime, there is such a lot to enjoy in living here.

  4. Wishing you happiness in your new home. Don't think I would be able to endure the temperatures out there, but love the look of it all.

  5. Perhaps there should be a tilly over the "N" in Canada giving it the same extended sound as in botana. :)
