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….

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

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.¨

 ¡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) :)
