Ok maybe I made the mistake of trying to do a meet on a Tuesday morning when most people are working?
That´s fine and it's all part of the process of trying to setup events for my website SpainLINKED.
It was going to be a walkabout where people could discuss what they liked and above all it was going to be fun!!
Some people said it as a bit far but there are all kinds of transport going into Málaga at intervals of 20 to 30 minutes and there is an great bus service too.
One comment that did molest me quite a bit is that "Lots of people don´t like Málaga".
Ok maybe it's not everybody's cup of tea but a lot of people haven't even visited Málaga PROPERLY. They have maybe gone into the shopping areas - El Corté Ingles, Vialia,
Málaga Plaza, Larios Centro etc and just gone to have a look at the shops.
I could not praise Málaga enough, I feel like Antonio Banderas - I may not look anything like him though - talking about how wonderful his city is. Because I have to say
and as scary as it sounds I have spent more years of my life living in Spain and almost have of those years in Málaga city.
I enjoy so much doing a circuit of Málaga - that I was hoping to share with people and will not give up on trying to do a meet at Málaga again in the future - each street
and square has so much character and within those streets, especially Calle Larios there as I have told you before in a recent blog that there are many musicians and various acts -
human statues, comedy acts, acrobats and the one I like so much and is so very well done is a guy i´ve seen doing one of the BEST Jack Sparrow impressions!!
It's all there, the costume is SPOT ON, the makeup is uncanny and the guy is about the same height as Johnny Depp and as a huge fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean films
it just makes you stop and stare and take it all in. The guy is South American going by his accent, it's all done in spanish, but then again he doesn't talk much.
It's the whole act itself - the walk, the mannerisms, the hand movements and the whole thing put together - as you can see for yourself it's uncanny!
I had to go over, put a coin in his box and shake his hand and say to him in spanish "Very well done mate!! Muy bien hecho - Amazing!! De puta madre"
