En Route To Andorra

Andorra is a small nation situated in the Pyrenees between France and Spain. Its history as such is an interesting curiosity, a monument to international agreement when nothing much is at stake. So far as we could tell, it consists of a mountain valley with steep sides, picturesque, if isolated. It stood between us and Figueres, and, most importantly for all concerned, it charges no sales tax. On anything. Gordon had said, if you're interested in cheap booze, not to mention other things, go to Andorra. So we did. There's only one road in from Spain, and only one road out, to France. Mountains either way. But worth the trip.
Again, for us, it's like the American southwest, except without
the open carry and the assholes





Top of the pass; only 2500 feet or so, but the grades were such
we had to stop three times to let our poor 1.7L turdo-diesel
cool down


So we thought from the pass we would see Andorra and took
a whole roll of pix of this town, which turned out to be in Spain

Andorra is off to the left, 20 miles or so
