Rodin Visits Malaga.

KormaCurry & I took a great daytrip to Malaga, Spain. It was a lovely, sunny day. We walked into the old town and amazingly enough, saw that the street was blocked off, looked up and saw The Thinker, a very famous Rodin bronze and many others on loan from Paris. We stumbled upon a little square where we had a tapas break and an amazing glass of Northern Spanish Rose'.

Sun, Sand and more sun...

KormaC and I have been enjoying copious amounts of beachtime here in Torremelinos. It has been beautiful and sunny, the waters of the Med, a beautiful deep turquoise. Andalusia is beautiful, the white stucco, Spanish buildings, sprinkled with groves of olive trees and orange tree lined streets on the prominade. We are also in a ceramics area. Lots of tiled street murals, courtyards and buildings, in the traditional arabic style.

When I die...

...bury me here please. We are back in Amalfi, it feels very dream-like. A tiny town built into the cliffs, KormaCurry & I stumbled upon this town in 2003 and never wanted to leave. We thought one day we would return, but did not know it would possible so soon, thanks to all of the cheap air carriers now. Lemon Groves, vineyards, epic sea views and rocky cliffs that plunge right into the aquamarine sea. The hospitality of the Amalfian people is neverending. Amalfi is where all of the Italian potter's live and create. All of the duomos are multicolored tiles and marble. The cliff towns are full of ceramica painted brightly with designs. The cemetery is high on a cliff with
24-7 candlelight... Need I say more?
