senor francisco porras ... museum owner ... jarandilla de la vera

i got the impression that mister porras, who has lived in the village all his life, has never thrown anything away


the first impression is of disorder but there turned out to be themes, and everything had been dusted


he charged me more to take these pictures than i paid to enter the prado, or guadalupe, but i didn't grudge the expense as i enjoyed his company and i had waited since last year
