Malaga and the beaches at Fuengirola

P1030889

Time to Party!

By 9:00 AM the next morning we were back up and in the carP1030893 again heading back down the coast to the town of Fuengirola.  Based on a recommendation and a good GPS we landed at one end of a long beach of what we believe is one of the finest on the Costa del Sol.

P1030895On a Saturday the beach was filled to the brim with locals and Alice and I mixed in.  P1030897We rented chairs and soaked in the sun and several mojito’s before heading to catch our 6:00 flight to Barcelona and the last leg of our trip.  We did try a Spanish omelet for a snack before heading out, nothing like what we Americans think of as an omelet.  I am looking forward to making them when we get home.

I will miss The Costa del Sol but not the influx from Great Britain.

Nap Time

The British influence and cash has led to over building the coast and their influence on the food in the tourist areas is inexcusable.

Barcelona for dinner!

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
