Ah, Ronda (Spain)
Commented reader Fred on Sunday's post about this town, "Ah, Ronda. I'd like to retire there. Not too big a town, and not too small, and with enough tourist interest to support good restaurants, bars and shopping. The height and cliffs make me feel so alive there. See the building on the left? That's the Parador. Great place to stay. Particularly if, like us, you book the rooms at the top right with their own large private terraces overlooking the incredible views: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bridgeronda.jpg."
Worth a trip, seems to me, and mos def a stop on my long-paradoried [sic] but not yet DBI (defunct before initiation — my latest acronym coinage) world tour.

Off-topic: My boss comes from the world of large government contractor corporations where initialisms run rampant. Yet he mocks my acronym savvy.
This year he introduced me to a new acronym coinage similar to the one you created here:
It has its uses.
You can learn something every day if you're not careful.

These are the stairs:
Also, Ronda has some say the oldest bullring in Spain. It's right behind the Parador. Madonna filmed this there:
Also, for anyone visiting, I recommend the restaurant Tragabuches. Hopefully it's still as good as it used to be. My wife and I had one of our most memorable meals there. We went for the molecular gastronomy tasting courses, but they also serve more regular fare.

On the other side of the bridge (which people were thrown off during the civil war... yikes) is a tunnel-like staircase carved inside the cliffs. You can walk all the way down to the river below. There is also another less well-known bridge crossing the gorge.
