We are feeling settled in Malaga now, so I thought I would share some of the great things about living here. First things we like about this apartment. It is quiet. We are very near the train station and it's shopping but we are on a small side street so we don't have the traffic noise. In addition, either the neighbors are quieter or the rooms are set up so that we don't hear noise from the neighbors through the walls. In the rooms with windows onto the central open area you can hear people who are talking near their own windows, but the bedroom and family room are quiet too. Yea! I love having counter space and room in the kitchen to move around. We even eat in there. It keeps the food mess more confined, plus I can reach the fridge without getting up. We are very comfortable here.
We are working on walking every day. On one of our walks we went to our park and found a festival going. There were kids performing on a stage and lots of little booths. We were there just at sunset. I loved seeing the birds flying across the red clouds.
|The park has this cool lite house.|
|There was a whole flock of birds but by the time I took the photo only a couple were left.|
Likely we would have made it anyway, but because we are here in Malaga, we were able to go see Los Miserables. (Les Miserables ) It was wonderfully well done, even though I missed some of the words. We enjoyed the ambiance of the venue, much smaller than we are used to at home.
|This is Sister Nielson and I outside the theatre.|
|We enlisted a random stranger to take our photo.|
|Look, real box seats in the balcony.|
|This is the ceiling. The words say 'honor to the fine arts'.|
|We ate afterwards, fashionably late. We sat outside and ate in the shadow of a beautiful old church.|
|These columns and balcony caught my fancy... so ornate. This was on one of our walks into the old section of downtown.|
|The carving on this door caught my eye too, but the key hole was what called for a photo. The key has to be in the shape of a number 3.|
|There are lots of street performers. I thought the makeup on these two was amazing.|
|We drive into Fuengirola now and one morning it was covered with fog!|
We are doing well. The new couple are settling in well and will make a big difference. We are so grateful for this gospel and our amazing opportunity to serve Heavenly Fathers beloved children here in Spain. We are thankful for our beloved children and all the family support we enjoy. Keep up the good work!
