Dry heart of Andalucia

When we woke this morning we were surprised to see it was cloudy, but they had all burnt away by lunchtime and then it was back to clear blue skies.
We set off from near the coast quite early and drove through the mountains behind Malaga.
We were soon on tiny, twisty-turny roads that gave both Darren and the campervan quite a workout.
The scenery was beautiful but incredibly brown and dry, and we passed mile after mile of olive trees that stretched out to the horizon. As the road climbed higher the trees disappeared and the earth was just brown, but every few miles we passed towns and villages with cute white painted houses and the occasional brown castle on the tops of the hills.
We are heading for Cordoba which is about 200k inland, and we reached it in the early afternoon.
