MALAGA, SPAIN........Absolutely Beautiful Port City....So Much Different from 40 years ago when I was there!
40 Years ago when I was in in Malaga, Spain, it was a sleepy little fishing village with a few scattered resort hotels....one of which I stayed at. The Bull Ring, which is now State of the Art, was just a small, rather rough Ring....sort of like comparing Yankee Stadium to a local Little League field. BUT, it was still beautiful and venturing into the old part of the City was awesome....blending the old charm with the contemporary additions. When I was there I do not recall any high rise buildings, but now they are dotted all along the coast.
And finally an impressive Town Hall I encountered while walking back to the ship.
Okay.....my impressions of Malaga.....yes, it is a place I would be happy to return to and spend some time. From what I could see there were tons of resorts, beautiful beaches, a fantastic city with a multitude of restaurants, cafes, shopping....history....beauty....lush greenery, flowers and parks. I felt very peaceful there and at ease....so Malaga is definitely a must see.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT.....my ETA to Florida is just 9 days from this post. I still have to tweak Cyprus, and do Cadiz, Spain Posts. Tomorrow I will be in Ponta Delgada, Portugal in the Azores, and after that, Florida.....after 7 days at Sea. I have been working on my people, experiences, encounters, reflections.....of this whole trip. My goal is to work on those during the Atlantic Crossing! So, Please stay tuned! If I am lucky the satellite Internet will cooperate!
