(Drivebycuriosity) - My wife and I were traveling in Spain. After Toledo, Madrid & Sevilla we went by bus to Granada. The bus ride through Southern Spain - which took about 3 hours - was an interesting experience.
We could see a fascinating landscape. The area was almost empty, we passed just some tiny villages and a few lonesome haciendas. There were rarely forests to see, instead we observed huge olive tree plantations which spread into the horizon.
The villages usually were just a cluster of one storage houses which looked like a collection of white cubes thrown into the landscape.
Southern Spain has plenty of sunshine. Why not taking advantage of that by building sun farms?
As we approached Granada snow covered mountains appeared on the horizon.
