The beach near where we stayed in southern Spain, Marbella, Coste Del Sol.
It felt like the calm before the storm.
With much turmoil ahead for the Euro and the countries like Spain. Saw
"skeleton" housing projects, started and abandoned. Saw huge resorts
that looked great from the outside but apparently had no one living in them-that's
according to the recent news about the building boom and collapse.
Our "resort" which was much older and rather quaint, was largely not filled
and it looks like the tourism thing is ebbing quickly. Too bad since
it is a very beautiful place.
We're talking retro here.
Down on the beach, a Moorish signal tower close to 900 years old.
A side trip to Granada.
These are the local taxi's. They all have numbers too.
A bullfight museum!
