On my morning walk last Saturday I noticed the door was open to

Málaga’s bullfight arena. I wanted to see it but not the bullfight.

I got a free ticket to….

…coffee promotion! :)

 

I was on my walk so I didn’t taste the coffee but I took a few photos.

 History of La Malagueta

“La Malagueta itself was built in 1874, by the architect Joaquín Rucoba. The first fight took place on 11th June 1876.”

It was quite empty but when I left there were lots of people coming in.

My studying is going ok but Spanish grammar is difficult for me.

So much to remember!

But I’ve noticed how much more I understand when reading a newspaper

or watching television.  Something has happened in my head! :)

 

 

How’s your week been, good?

¡Hola a todos!

 

ooooooooooooh, time flies……..

 

Unfortunately I don’t have time to blog as often as I’d like to

 

because I really want to concentrate studying Spanish…

 

so, from this week on till the end of January 2013

 

I’ll post only once a week.

 

(I’m going to have an eye operation beginning of January,

I need some time to recover – from that – too - :) )

¨The Guadalmedina (from the Arabic wādi, “river” + medina, “city”; River of the City)

is a river that runs through the city of Málaga, Spain. Historically,

it has played an important role in the city’s history,

and has divided the city into two halves.

The city’s historic center is located on its left bank.¨

Piss everywhere…at the weekends city center is like a huge toilet,

really disgusting!

 

BUT.

Every morning, very early, city employees are cleaning the streets and plazas.

That is GOOD!

 ¡Hola! a todos!

 

Huh, I didn’t remember studying language is so hard work.

New words, new grammar…every day.

BUT. I like it!

 

I can manage in shops etc. even if my grammar is awful (like my English!) :)

 

I think it’s important to communicate -

we all do mistakes and there is no perfect human being!

 

 

Exploring back alleys in Málaga you can see this kind of art

(one with shadows) :)

I’m going to have a couple of weeks blogging break.

 

I’ll be back on week #39 from

 

MÁLAGA, SPAIN!

 

 

I want to learn Spanish.

I shot these pics on Thursday.

 

It was sunny but suddenly when I walked back home

I got wet, it was raining hard but not for a long time.

 

It took 1 hour 40 mins to walk.

I had a heart rate monitor on.

74 minutes was between my heart rate target zone.

 

Today I feel slim :) :) :)

LONG

 

Hartwall Original Long Drink by BLOGitse

 

“Hartwall Original Long Drink is a crisp mixed drink that blends the refreshing taste of gin with the tang of grapefruit.

The beverage was launched for the Helsinki Olympics in 1952

with an eye on lightening the workloads of restaurant

staff as they served Olympic tourists.

The ready-mixed, bottled Long Drink was such a big hit among Finns that

the company decided to keep it on the market.”
