COLERA, SPAIN AND UPDATED PHOTOS

COLERA is one of the last towns before France. I’ve ridden from Barcelona to here, Ive watched the beach towns disintegrate to this, saving the best for last. This town is the winner, hands down.You can see from the wikipedia page, they don’t say much about this town. Thats the charm, during the week it is so quiet.

EVERY TOWN HAD HOUSES UP THE HILLSIDES, HERE? NONE! THATS THE ART PARK ON THE UPPER RIGHT.

THIS IS THE TOWN SQUARE WITH FREE WIFI
There are NO cars here, downtown is beautifully quiet. I was here an hour and I decided to stay a week. I met this awesome artist, her stuff was so over the top creative. Im considering putting together a show back home or NYC! Im going to met with her soon and talk about it, she speaks NO english, in case you were wondering.
Did a little mountain biking, it was a step above what the Bike Friday could do, safely.

I rode my bike around town takes 5 to 10 minutes, but I road to ART PARC and saw a different view of Colera. The laid back lifestyle is so refreshing after the chaos of Barcelona. It would take you 2 weeks of hard work to see all of Barcelona, I was only there 4 days, I met several people who came to Barcelona and have stayed 10 years, so far. Its an amazing city, that I want to revisit sometime.

I MET THIS FRENCH/ITALIAN COUPLE DOWNTOWN
I take photos of other bike touring people. So we stood on the street and joked and laughed for 1/2 hour, then they wanted a photo, then we went for coffee and beer. They were riding to Cadaques, the home of DALI, the ARTIST.
I was told by several people, including Jesus, that I had to go to Cadaques. Im at the top of the hill and met this Austrian couple

THEY SAID I HAD TO VISIT TOO, ITS EASY BACK UP! 5KM STRAIGHT DOWN AND UP.
I should have just stayed and camped, instead I rode to Colera, good decision.

CADAQUES IS A CUTE LITTLE TOWN
So back to Colera and the French couple, we had our picture taken where this little boy metal statue is trying to give crab(s) to the other little boy.

THIS IS ANDREA AND ELISA THEY (WE) WERE SUPER FUNNY I WANTED THEM TO STAY HERE AND LAUGH SOME MORE, INSTEAD THEY RODE TO CADAQUES.
they said they were going to stop on the way back to see if I was still here,? YEP!
The camping is only $13 a night. Im eating out a lot more now, it was $40 in Barcelona for a hostel room, with 5 other people and no pool!.

THE RESTAURANT AT THE CAMPGROUND IS AWESOME, SALMON PIZZA WITH GOAT CHEESE. I couldn’t wait for the photo hence the bite.
The campground has a certified dive shop on site. Im going snorkeling tomorrow with wetsuit $35. I love these non touristic type towns, everything is a bargain.
People from Portland know Corey (solid gold) lives here in France. I wanted to visit him, but Im so far away Ill never get there before he heads to Portland, to visit you all. Im trying to get him to saddle up and join me for a couple days.
