November 2018 - A Month of Malaga...Spain

Back to Malaga for a month of life in one place...yay.  Time to rest, relax, eat well, see the sights and enjoy the social life of this little gem in the South of Spain.

Flash Back from my Baby Days ...
Way, way back when I was less than 1!
Let's dive in. Arrived in the LATE afternoon as my Ryan Air flight was delayed 3 hours, but hey we made it alive.  Met with Ernesto the owner of my new two bedroom apartment for the month which worked out well for myself and Tani who rode the Moto from Lisbon, where I left it, to Malaga.

What can you do...$55 flight.

A little apartment tour.

Not the sunniest apartment


Rain or shine let's go for a swim...Really Brad.?..yikes

Weird, just me here...


Here we go...

Christ!


A few days solo doing some scouting before the arrival of my roomie.  

Plaza de la Merced
Poor bastard's delivery box fell apart
due to being wet from the rain

Don Pablo Pollo



Halloween with limited options.  I used what I had and splashed out on a 1 euro tube of fake blood to take it to a respectable level considering I had no idea what to expect in Malaga Centre.

Was this necessary?

Motorcycle crash victim

A few dressed up in the streets

ZZ Pub, always good

That's tight parking

Great view towards the Castle
Gibralfaro

Tasty Olives of Spain...

Lovely water front

Malaga Cathedral

Good view of the Habour as we climbed to the Castle



Bull fight stadium under construction

Reminded me of the Hobbit


Spectacular views





Looking East



Found this squatter coming down from the Castle

Been here for a while
I was wondering how they emptied these garbages.





How cool, that's the technique for
pouring this apple wine and the guy
has the same face every time.

"Be Happy" highly recommended

With "Penis Negronis"

That's a big dog!

Sleeping standing up in a loud bar, some people are just more talented than others.

The three Amigos,
at least until 3 am.



ZZ Pub is usually the last stop on my nightly tours, Live music at 3 am, awesome.

The usual look after
finishing at ZZ Pub



Beach time always helps a hangover
16C water temp. swim helps too. Ouch!

Amazing Muriel

Mister Roboto...Domo

Protesting in Merced Plaza

Readying for Christmas lights,
apparently quite famous display here

Finally going North of the Centre

La Oliva Negra for take away lunches

Look at this bike

A favourite spot close to the apartment. So popular we never went on Friday's or Saturday's. Packed!

La Tranca

Three different barrels of sweet wine
  
Tasty Tapas

And the adding of your bill
Excellent night with live Flamenco.  Check it out

Worst Futbolin table
Look at the size of that
