From December 1912 to February 1913 Rilke housed in the Reina Victoria
Hotel in Ronda, Sapin, where he wrote part of the 6th Elegy and
a dozen other poems including the wonderful "Spanische Trilogie".
The Hotel has a small Rilke museum with interesting memorabilia
in room 207, from where Rilke enjoyed the magnificent panorama of
the Andalusian mountains. On 31 March 2007 Carla took this picture
of me, next to Rilke's bronze statue in the hotel garden, and sitting
at what may have been Rilke's desk.
