Wow! I missed a week. I usually write on Sundays, but they are getting busier. Then I didn't think about it during the week except when I was too tired to do it. I actually had plenty of time because my compy was a little under the weather so we stayed home quite a bit. He is pretty much over it now but he had a nice little summer cold last week. Sooo this will be a catch up post.
We are getting a new Secretary in the office and so to say goodbye, Rod took the office elders carting. While they were doing that, I grabbed Sister Neilson and we went up to Mijas pueblo. She had never been. It has been hazy a lot lately but that day was clear and beautiful.
Then we stopped into the Miniature Museum, which I hadn't seen ether. I don't quite know what I expected but it was different. It was full of all sorts of very tiny works of 'art'. Being dense tourist types we didn't notice all the 'no photos' signs and asked the attendant. She said no... and then when we were the only ones there she came and said 'Go ahead but no flash and only when no one else is here.' That is why they aren't super photos but the objects were rather remarkable.
|These were also small sculptures.|
|These are sculptures out of tooth picks. They had magnifying glasses so you could see details.|
|Check out the drinking fountain!|
That evening we went to the closing night of the Feria at the actual fair grounds.
|They put up this structure every year as the 'entrance' to the fair. I think we arrived about 8:30 pm.|
|These booths sell toys and candy. Also, at the end there is a display where they sell cups of cooked lima beans, and pieces of fresh coconut which always have water spraying onto them.|
|Remember last week? Well these are the real biznagas they are selling.|
|I had to take a photo of the mini street sweeper. |
They have mini dump trucks and all the other equipment but sized for the tiny streets here.
|I loved this senior lady posing for her photo in her party outfit.|
|There are 3 streets of these pavilions, all newly painted for faria. They are just 4 walls, though some have kitchens and serve restaurant meals. Most have a stage and speakers, tables and chairs and a space for dancing.|
|Instead of ceilings they have pompoms strung across the top, or these flags, or some have fabric swaged from wire to wire.|
|There are several of these 'sculptures' in Malaga. I love the idea of a boat made of water.|
|We had a fun evening but were ready to go home by 10:30.|
|As you can see the crowds were just starting to arrive.|
|We had a visit from flat Elder and Sister Castillo. They brought a wonderful hug from J.|
