This view of Rota from the breakwater gives the feeling that the town has been there a long time.

This plaza in the town of Rota has a traffic director on duty, whether the flow of traffic warrants it, at least at the time when the photo was taken. Three-wheel motorcycle carts like the one shown parked are probably more practical than those powered by four-legged burros, but have less character.

Foot traffic in downtown Rota includes two U.S.N. sailors. It's a guess, but the fact they are in uniform and in town, they may well be on Shore Patrol duty. The SP brazzard (arm band) would be worn on the right sleeve, not visible in this

A couple of shapely young women add interest to the the Rota promenade.

His now vintage Pontiac enabled George Betras to venture farther afield. Photo taken in Chipiona, Spain in 1964.

For a break in the life of adventure, it was usually possible to stir up a game of chance in the barracks.
