Tuesday of this week I hopped a bus and headed off to Málaga to see the Picasso Museum.  What a great day and so easy by bus, no need to drive.  We caught the 09:40  bus from Salobreña and arrived 2 hours later in down town Málaga.  If you are going to the museum, it is best to get off at the Málaga Port stop.  Getting off here lands you square in the historic old town of Málaga, which in my opinion is the best part of Málaga.

The streets are beautiful and so colorful, a pleasure to walk through.   Entrance to the museum is just 6 euros for the permanent exhibition, however you can buy a combo ticket that will give you access to not only the Picasso works, but the temporary exhibits in house at the time that you visit.  Well worth the extra 2 or 3 euros.

The museum itself is a lovely building, with an excellent gift shop and a cafe located in the internal terrace away from the hustle and bustle of the streets.  Very pleasant indeed.  Two coffees will set you back 4.50 euros.  Upon entering the museum, you must check all bags, which they x-ray first.  Taking photos inside the galleries is NOT permitted, but all other areas are okay.  Security is tight so don’t even try.

After leaving the museum we had a lovely leisurely lunch at the Restaurante  Cosmopolita  http://www.spanish-menu.com/setlang.php?langstate=UK&UG_hodnota_id=44&sn=5  You can check the link.  The food was very good and I highly recommend the white chocolate mousse and caramel apple desert. TO DIE FOR.  Needless to say the diet went out the window.  Lunch was 45 euros, we had in total, 5 beers, oxtail soup for 2 ( 14.00 euros) bread, coffee and dessert.

After lunch, we slowly made our way through the town to catch the 17:30 bus back to Salobreña.  Cost of a bus ticket, is 7.21 euros each way per person.  Now that I know where the historic area is, I am sure I will be going back in the very near future!  I took so many photos, that I have had to mount them as thumbnails, just click the photo to enlarge.  Enjoy!

This is Bodega Las Garrafas, a restaurant that has been in this location for more than 50 years, it has a good inexpensive menu, and a very nice ambiance.  I am just sorry I did not take more photos.

Cruces de Mayo

It’s that time of year again, the Cruces de Mayo celebration is getting under way.  The Casa de Cultura and the Tourism office have gotten the information out early this year with a map the of the participants, so that is great news.   Way to go guys.  

If you click on the map, it will enlarge for better viewing..You can also stop by the Casa de Cultura or the Tourism office for a copy if you wish.

I also  want to tell you about a fundraiser for the Paws for Thought animal charity that does so much good work here in Salobreña and all along the Costa Tropical.  They have re-homed hundreds of cats and dogs, chipped, spayed or neutered and given medical attention where needed.  They really do a great job.. You can meet Joanne and her associates at the car boot this Saturday in Salobreña.  Why not stop by and either buy something or donate what you can.  They really do great work!  Fundraiser takes place Saturday June the 2nd in La Herradura.

Taken from the terrace of Peter Gil..thanks Peter, you really do have fantastic views.

Seen on one of my jaunts yesterday.. So pretty in person.

Great news, the town has changed the direction of the road that runs alongside Mercadona Super Market, you can now enter town and make a right and head directly to the above ground parking lot.   This will also alleviate a lot of the traffic snarls that occur up in behind the Bodega and along the road by the school.  Finally.  Well done town hall, my guess is that Mercadona has been pushing for this for a while.


You now enter this street from the other end.

Signage is up.

This is a little plug for a firm I recently had to call on for one of my clients.  These guys were fast, courteous, knowledgeable and able to do just about anything.  They have first-rate equipment, and can deal with most any problem that you might have with drains, cisterns, septic tanks, the cleaning of tennis courts, blind wells, filtering systems the lot.  They are located in Nerja, but can accommodate most areas along the coast.  I have included their website address in English in my blogroll in the column to the right.  The company name is Manolo Y Paco, SC.

If you don’t speak Spanish and you need help contacting them, drop me a line, it would be my pleasure to pass business on to them.

Here is one of their Youtube Videos
