I've seen Jerez de la Frontera on the map and have wondered about it. So far I haven't contrived to get there, close, but not quite. But as the name says, a place at the edge, so I must sometime, right? What did you think of it?

I still consider it at an edge, less than 100 miles from another continent.

Well, the two cafes we sat in both had pleasant pastries, and quite an assortment of sherries. And there are many smaller towns nearby that would have been of interest if we had had more time.
