A Safe Port / Un Puerto Seguro


The Centre Pompidou Málaga is located right on the city's beautiful port. Cruise ships and ferries come and go here. And the port is filled with restaurants and shops, an open-air market, and plenty of places to relax. Miguel and I heard some great live music at one of the outdoor restaurants and we found the perfect spot to drop San Geraldo.

Y el puerto está lleno de restaurantes y tiendas, un mercado al aire libre, y un montón de lugares para relajarse. Miguel y yo escuchamos buena música en vivo en uno de los restaurantes al aire libre e encontramos el lugar perfecto para establecer San Geraldo.

  1. So is the "special siesta place" meant to represent a backside or a pair of tits? I suppose an arse since there are no nipples. Or do I just have a particularly dirty mind?

    1. Rozzie: 1. I don't know. 2. Yes, I think so. I hadn't looked at it closely. Now I have to go back and see if it's tits or ass...

      I was absolutely taking a picture of the port and lighthouse. I don't ogle teenagers. I just like having someone in the foreground. The ass bench probably wouldn't work for me... or maybe the tits bench.

      I can't believe it's taken me so long to get to that part (the main part) of the port.

  4. After a ride on the ferris wheel, Carlos would need a "lie down" at the siesta spot!

  6. What a beautiful port! I like the hustle and bustle of them.

    Now that 'big wheel' is another story......I too would need a nap after that!!

      I'm not a huge fan of amusement park rides, but I LOVE ferris wheels. I plan to go on that one. The views are supposed to be spectacular.

  8. I just realized now that the Pompidou is that glass coloured building on the waterfront! We were there on a Sunday afternoon when they had extra tents set up for their market and everyone was out walking. I really liked the Malaga waterfront.

      Apparently the market runs all the time. I'm looking forward to going back simply to spend time shopping, browsing, and eating!

  9. That resting place looks like a giant clam shell, which would make San Geraldo a pearl.

      Rozzie and Anne Marie couldn't decide what body parts the siesta spot represented. I like your version.

  10. Wait - something is missing! Where are the stripes and plaids and patterns? Where are the matching outfits? This is not the Málaga you have been sharing in many of your previous posts. You have been holding out on us.

      The city itself, like most cities, tends to be a bit more stylish. However, I did point out a couple of really "interesting" combinations to Miguel who immediately confirmed (as I knew) that they weren't Spanish people (although sometimes they ARE Spanish people).
