A bit of entertainment in Ronda.
For me, the town of Ronda is one of the nicest places in Málaga province. Perched on a hill some 739 metres above sea level, the city is split into two by a huge gorge (El Tajo) carved out by the Guadalevín River.
Lunch in Ronda was a tapas affair at Las Campinas in Plaza del Socorro. Many places in Ronda serve mixed tapas – often 10 tapas for between €9 and €12.50.
It really was a beautiful day down by the seashore. El Chucho beach has taken a bit of a battering and has looked better, but it happens at least once a year so it comes as no surprise.
I watched as a ‘flower seller’ approached a man who was taking a photo with his phone and then spent several minutes tapping him on the arms and shoulders with one hand – the one with the flower in it – while her other hand whizzed in and out of the man’s pockets like the Artful Dodger on steroids.
A glorious day down by the beach with calm seas and quite a few people on the sand and in the sea. I decided to stop off at Chiringuito Torrecilla 3 for a nice, cool beer and a spot of lunch. I opted for a bacon sandwich as being reasonably light but filling a gap. Well…
I decided to call this one ‘5 a Day in a Dinghy’, a delightful pastry filled with fruits. Salvador bakery, €2.50 for coffee and pastry.
Another small Italian take-away/home delivery place has opened near the top of avenida Castilla Perez, next door to Master Pollo. Opening times are 10:00 to 24:00, telephone numbers: 631132563 and 625477562.
‘Local Produce’ or ‘Artisan’ has really expanded in the past couple of years, new places opening all the time and one of the latest being on calle El Barrio. They don’t all make it but at least they are giving it a go.
The latest chatter about the sewage plant is that work was due to restart a month ago, but no sign of any action so far.
