My last day in Salobreña, then off to Sevilla.
Salobreña was probably a savior of mine. I had plenty of time to rest, enough sun shine, and air, and sea winds, and mediteranean sea spray, and food to make for a wonderful time. The very first night I got here, there was a procession, and I swear sometimes the tourist understands more than the natives. It was a procession to honor the sufferage of Christ, and there must have been 20, nay 50 people holding up a huge block with a staute of jesus on it. It was awesome, and spellbinding, and I felt the passion of the people for their faith more strongly than I ever have.
here are the pictures of it, which just dont show how slow and awesome this procession was. These people literally moved one step at a time, the whole things swaying side to side like someone deep in prayer.
And the side view...
The next day I went out to the beach, and to the castle on top of the hill. I got a little sunburnt.. oy and I got very sleepy from all the fresh air. I am determined to come back with sexy golden, but not cancerous, skin. Seville rooftop sunbathing here I come!
The Beach here had these amazing rocks on it.. I stared at them for probably an hour.
They went all the way to the sea..
The restaurant I ate at..I had an avocado salad and a beer and a coffee. Umm..one hint. Beer and coffee dont mix. Only wine and coffee. Anyway, they had this octopi next the the fire, and they looked very wiggily yet tastey.
One could see the castle from the beach. I decided to make my way up the ascent.
It took me forever to get up the hill..mountain..hell walk.. but the streets on the way there were great.
Finally! I got to the castle and walked around. once again, no railings. There was even one part where people were dozing that was next to a shear cliff! Even I am too much of a wuss for that!
When I left the castle I realized there was a straight shot street up the hill to the castle and I had winded around for what seemed like hours. So I went home and passed out. And read a steven king novel I found?
The next day, yesterday, I went to go start a painting. This is what I was painting, but it got dark before I finished...
And then...this is the hallway to my room. You can see the door to my room on the left. The plants are in an open air kind of patio .. and this is the second floor! very neat eh?
One last thing... I went to the store today, and the wine was so cheap I actually giggled aloud.
This was the botton shelf:
This was the top shelf:
Ah, why cant wine be that cheap in the States? Id probably be a lot more drunk....
