Barcelona – Malaga
Sweltering hot sunshine outside Barcelona station but a landscape of water does much to help temper the heat. I have yet to discover what those bizarre towers are dotted around this concrete and water landscape. They look like lighthouses but are too far from the sea for that.
An almost empty restaurant car and very relaxed journey headed for Barcelona.
Traveling in style at high speed through the heart of Spain’s outback. Scenery that never fails to impress me despite much of it being desert-like and barren. The restaurant car is always a great place to record the passing scenes and have a cup of coffee of course.
Olive trees can be seen littering the hard baked sandy earth inland …
… and sometimes there is little sign of vegetation.
