Today in Spain

Scenes from Malaga on this supremely hot afternoon. The cathedral, the Pompidou Centre, the port.

The horses are outside the bullring, being prepared for the fight tonight. They’re beautiful animals, but I don’t want to think about what comes later. One of the greys has a stitched-up wound. The bigger horses are ridden by the picadors, and they face off against the bulls during the fight.

I am in the red in one of the pictures.

Today in Málaga

Notice the flags at half-mast (or half-staff) in the second picture, because of the terror attacks. The first picture is of the Roman ampitheatre and the Alcazaba. There is a castle behind it, but you can’t see it here.

Oh, Barcelona.

Sonya's Stuff

I have walked down Las Ramblas many times over the years, and will be back in Barcelona in a few days.

There’d been talk of a terror attack in Spain for ages, and Las Ramblas was a location we’d said was vulnerable.

I was on a train late this afternoon, and when we got back to Malaga I was wondering why there were so many more police around.

I am very sick of these terrorists.

Spring on the way…

Sunny, warm, blue sky, a bit windy – it’s starting to feel like spring in Canberra. Of course, I’m flying out of the country on Sunday, so I’ll miss half of it!

Canberra Sunshine

Bright blue sky to compensate for an uncharacteristically rainy Monday in Canberra. I am flying to Spain on Sunday, and will be gone a month. When I get back spring will well and truly have arrived. Already the wattle is out and some of the blossoms have appeared.
