A bit of drizzle wasn’t going to stop anyone having fun today and there was quite a crowd on the Balcón de Europa.
Thursday September 24th at the Sala Mecado in Plaza La Ermita is the inauguration of the exhibition of photos of the Feria 2015 ‘Caballero’ and ‘Reina’ hopefuls.
Saturday was the Milla de Navidad – Christmas Mile – with street races in various categories. Would have to say that the publicity for the event by the Council was somewhat lacking.
Very good Christmas lights this year and the Town Hall has really been given the treatment.
There doesn’t seem to have been many weddings going on recently, but there was one today, and the happy couple were having their photos taken on the Balcón de Europa and on the way down to Calahonda beach.
It started off very calm and quiet this morning, then the wind began to get stronger and the sea became choppy. A cloudless sky except over one mountain. Looked like it was clinging to the hilltop.
Far fewer people on El Playazo beach now that the Spanish tourists have returned home.
I know opinions are divided on the subject of ‘street artists’, but it does seem a little strange to wander around all day and not see a single busker, juggler, living statue or other itinerant entertainer anywhere on the streets.
