International Photos.....

The hamlet of Fuente Nueva is home to a mix of nationalities. Around 25 years ago when the Spanish went to the south of France grape picking for much needed income they told the French about the cave dwellings in the Granada region. The French, being intrigued by this unique form of living decided to come to Spain and see what it was all about. Some bought caves, some won them in a game of cards and some were even adopted or swapped for various items.

The result is that there are many French in the area and of course people of different mationalities that they in turn introduced to the caves. Us English didn't catch on to the idea until 25 years later...

Anyway, last week we had a photoshoot for some products for the new website, www.orceserranohams.com Our friends agreed to come around and take some snaps (one is a pro photographer) and this is how it turned out..


3 adults and 2 kids standing on top a Citroen AX with all manner of foil sheets and white plastic boards. I was left with the job of running around with the wine... The photographer is French - she is married to a Polish guy, we are English and the other feller helping is Vietnamese.



Conversation was interesting...



The new photos turned out fantastic so a BIG thanks to everyone involved, it was a great afternoon.
