De nada, amigo!
I just hope your experience there is as fun as mine was. It won’t take long for you to see some great sites in Los Albaricoques. Since I was there, they tell me that the classic FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE duel arena has been rebuilt and that there are historical (and yes even hysterical, I hear!) markers with photos, and so forth, showing you where things were shot.
Like I said, in the lobby/restaurant of the Hostal Alba you will see quite a few posters and photos. I gave a lot of the black and white 8x10 photos that you will see on the walls to Senor Manuel (the hotel’s owner) back in 2005. I wonder if he would remember me, at all…
Not likely, but you never know…
In the same area, you guys could head up the road to the Cortijo de Fraille. This is the old mission that was used in THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY, BULLET FOR THE GENERAL, and others. The back side of the place was also used as the Agua Caliente hideout used by Indio and his gang (where they beat up Eastwood and Van Cleef, etc.) in FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE. That is a must see and only takes a few minutes from Los Albaricoques.
My directions are crap, by the way, or I would rattle off exact locations and directions, and so forth.
I was always lucky enough to be with a couple of professional Almeria location specialists when I was over there!
Man Alive, I wish I was going with you guys!!!
