with Laurie Lee
After Cadiz I remembered a landscape that seemed as empty as the sea-all light and great skies and distances.
This is where the Wild West began and these mounted herdsmen are the originals of all cowboy heroes.
East of Tarifa the landscape is like a mangy lion.
Laurie Lee remembers his first walk through Spain in the year before the Civil War and retraces his steps along the Mediterranean coast to Algeciras.
