Based solely upon my own observations and gut feeling, I would hazard a guess that Nerja has had a better than normal winter season as far as visitor numbers are concerned. Definitely a colder winter, although that hasn’t stopped many people donning shorts, albeit it in most cases along with jumpers and, quite often, a thick jacket.
Work has indeed finally restarted on a couple of the collectors for the sewage plant, notably in calle Antonio Ferrandis ‘Chanquete’ where a section of the road is closed. Still probably a long way to go before it is all finished and operational, but at least something is finally being done.
For many, many years, the cheap and cheerful Antelo bar was on the bottom corner of the square in Plaza de la Ermita and served very good tapas. Since its demise there have been several openings and closings, the latest incarnation being El Tolina.
Before checking out the news of the day, I still like to scan through the MailOnline in a morning as, apart from the often totally misleading headlines, non-stories, obsession with certain Z-listers and sensationalism, there is usually an episode or two in the games ‘guess the missing words’ or ‘rearrange the following to form a coherent sentence’.
I tend to refer to apple-filled delights as ‘apple pies’, or even a more generic term such as ‘cake’, which covers a multitude of sins, but technically I think it should be ‘apple tart’ based upon painstakingly extensive five-second research.
According to the MailOnline: “Revealed: ‘Lost’ pyramid city uncovered in the heart of Mexico using lasers had as many buildings as Manhattan 1,000 years ago”. Fascinating revelation….ignoring the fact that Manhattan didn’t actually exist 1,000 years ago of course.
Feeding time for the pigeons on the Balcón de Europa, Nerja.
The Hostal Acapulco sign has disappeared from the Giner de los Rios centre in calle Diputación…sudden thought: maybe it was something to do with the recent filming which took place in and around Plaza Cavana.
A very high quality Carnaval procession this year with the organisers making a great effort to prevent huge gaps building up between groups, something that invariably happens. Here are a few pics and a short video.
Airlines appear to be clamping down on ’emotional support animals’ after people have turned up to check-in with giant peacocks, turkeys and other assorted creatures. This is despite, in many cases, the passenger being in possession of a valid doctor’s letter certifying the animal as a ‘comfort animal’.
