Marina Beach

I'm a little tired today. Cultural anthropology is a draining activity. Last night's field work took place in Benalmadena, just down the coast from Torremolinos at an establishment called Marina Beach.

I'm hoping that photos taken by the young women from Te vi fiesta from last night get posted otherwise you might not believe me that amongst all the young revellers were middle aged and elderly women accompanying a bride-to-be who were all wearing leopard spot cowboy hats, black outfits and sherrif's badges with tiny plastic penises stuck to them.

Of course, I have a sketch of one, but it will be a while before I can get it scanned.

I hear the Hotel Amaragua has a splendid pool. Perhaps someone will invite you for a dip there this week.

I suppose that could happen, but I'm entirely happy with the Hotel Miami pool.

The Amaragua looks a little too upscale for a simple man like me.

I really need to see that sketch.

Yes, sometimes simple is best. But as a known devotee of things aquatic, perhaps you will be tempted.
