Malaga Spain April 13, 2004 A wonderful Spanish city with another beautiful cathedral. The interior of the church included beautiful stained glass windows, a pipe organ, antique pews remaining from the 1600's, columns, vaulted ceilings and paintings. There are many cafes and special places to shop. We spent a whole day wandering around, stopping to enjoy coffee and our newly found friends, enjoying lunch and coffee.

Mar 25, 2005 - Day 9. Malaga
It's 03.45 here in Malaga, and the Semana Santa procession is still ongoing. I can hear the trumpets, cymbals and drums. After four great days in Granada, Randy and I took the 19.00 bus to Malaga. Arrived in our hostel at 21.30, took a shower, then went out to see the procession and get some food. Our hostel is perfectly located beside the Alcazaba (fortress) and the Malaga Catedral, which are in the city centre. Full day tomorrow: Alcazaba, Catedral, research work for my CICT internship.Jump to full entry
Mar 8, 2005 - Melaga: When Spontaneous Travel Goes Wrong
Took a bus out to the coast city of Malaga in Southern Adalusian Spain today determined to find some sort of night-life that we had just missed or that did not exist in Seville. What we did find (or didn't find as the case may be) was more than we bargained for... We got a hostel near the center of Town and wandered all over the place. We visited the old walled City and Castle that was around since the times of the the Moors as well as toured the coastal area near the local Bull fighting ring and then Had a beer in the "Cheers" bar near the...Jump to full entry

Jun 27, 2004 - Malaga
Hola! Currently in Malaga enjoying the beautiful weather and beaches. I´ve spent the last week learning Spanish and have one more week to go. The heat is affecting the brain though, and I have to take advantage of the afternoon siesta. It's quite nice to eat the main meal at 2.30 and then a lighter meal around 10. The sun doesn´t even set until around 10.30! On Saturday, some of the students at the Spanish school went up to El Chorro, which is a mountain range and lake outside of Malaga. We cooked up a large paella (rice with seafood and...Jump to full entry
Jun 9, 2004 - Malaga to Fuengiola.
Today is nothing but a lot of travelling. Got a taxi to the bus station, took the bus to the airport. Flew to Liverpool on a half-an-hour flight. Had a 3 hour layover there then got on another flight to Malaga. Got a taxi from the airport there and finally got to the hotel where my study abroad group was. I tried speaking with the cab driver but he didn't know any English whatsoever and I only spoke probably half a dozen full sentences to him. I thought the rest of Spain would be the same way but when I got to Fuengirola it was all English...Jump to full entry
