At a rock concert in our local spectacular open air shopping mall…
One of the many “avenues” that branch away from the central plaza…
There’s such a lifestyle contrast here, I guess it’s only really noticeable when “living” in Spain as a very welcome visitor…
Whole families out on a Saturday night together, and NO drunken yobs binge drinking and kicking the hell out of each other. There’s an eclectic mix of people from other countries too, and it’s very refreshing how we all get on. Language is no barrier.
menu of the day, “Menu De La Dia” it goes as follows:
Afternoon: Sit outside for a drink at one of the many bars and restaurants on the third floor – overlooking the Med – and RELAX. (They even have sun loungers up there).
Wander round and do some shopping, even shopping isn’t stressful! I bought myself a skirt and Dave bought himself a “man bag.” The latter seems to be a requirement here. (Spot the odd guy without one).
Sit at one of the bars / restaurants later on for a meal, and RELAX again..
Do some more shopping or just “chill out” in the sun, take it all in and RELAX again, (again). At 10pm all the shops are still open, all restaurants still serving.
Sit, shop or wander while the concert continues, it was more acoustic than rock, (think Supertramp). They have all kinds of festivals and events on there. Some raise money for charity too, the other week it was an open air buffet meal for “Help for Heroes.”
Oh, and there’s a great place for kids to play in, it’s only about the size of a football pitch! And then there’s the little train that wanders round the place whilst carefully avoiding folks…
PS: As I’m sat on the roof terrace writing this, (watching yachts out at sea), there’s a guy on Skype wandering round his beautiful garden with his laptop showing the family. And he’s swinging it round to the blue, blue sky for them to ogle over…
