Just a couple of photos I took up in the old town yesterday of the flowering Bougainvillea, so vibrant!  The pale purple is a flowering Jacaranda tree which are in bloom all over town.

Well there is lots going on this month, so lots to tell you, but before I start with all that, a little good news on the restaurant front.

The restaurant formerly known to us all as La Traviesa up in the old town is set to re-open again in it’s original location with Ivana at the helm again.  A lot of you know her from not only La Traviesa, but also Betty Blue where she was the lone proprietor before heading off to Almuñecar to open the Blue Bar.  Ivana returned last summer and was the head cook at Sunem when it re-opened after extensive renovations including the opening of a restaurant on the premises.  I am sure many of us locals can remember many a good night at any of her establishments, so make sure you stop in and say hello.  She promises to send me a menu as soon as she is able so that I may post it here for you.  Opening is scheduled for Friday July 15th for the general public, and Thursday the 14th for close friends and family.  Good news all around I say!
