First beach day of the semester!
So 30 hours in Málaga does not seem like much time considering the first 16 were spent finding the hostel, getting dinner, and sleeping.
We made the most of the short time though, seeing Picasso’s birthplace, a small museum of Picasso’s work along with his contemporaries, the old Moorish fortress of Alcazaba (hello hiking at 11am with backpacks), and then, of course, the BEACH!
Due to time constraints, we decided to stick with the city beach instead of going a little further out. Despite the gorgeous weather, it was not nearly as crowded as expected. And despite getting burnt (also less than expected but still), I loved it.
First, some architecture I enjoyed:
And then Picasso’s birthplace (no pictures inside sadly)
But seriously, look at these views:
I mistook slots along the bottom of the wall (not the ones behind my head) as openings for archers and was quickly corrected and told that the ones along the bottom of the wall were actually water drains. Who knew?
And finally, the beach!!
It got cloudy for the last 20 minutes on the beach but as it was 90 degrees that day, the clouds were welcome!
