Mermaids Before Málaga

Just four more days and we’ll be on our way to JFK for our flight to Málaga!  In January, we obtained a lease for a place in Sevilla before deciding to relocate to Málaga.  As a result (and we thought this might be the case), our residency visas were issued for Sevilla and we are required to live there at least until our resident cards are issued (which could take several months).  Jerry and I fell in love with Sevilla, so it’s no great hardship to have another change in plans.  So, we have our vacation rental in Málaga for the remainder of July and will find a permanent place in Sevilla (which is only about an hour and a half away on the express train).  We thrive on change!


I hope to post at least a couple more times before we leave New York.  Maybe there will be Malaga Mermaids and Mermen to photograph next week.  Right now, we’re sitting in a Starbucks in Fresh Meadows, Queens, after visiting an old cemetery to do some research on dead relatives for Jerry’s genealogy website,  This afternoon and evening will be spent visiting and being visited by living relatives.

  1. Hello Mitch:
    However we look at it, we cannot in all honesty say that you and Jerry live straightforward lives. It is just as well that you thrive on change! That you are bound for Spain we are totally clear about; once there we remain somewhat confused as to the rights of residency papers, registration, etc. We shall look forward to the moment of touching down on Spanish soil!!

  2. I really like Seville Mitch so I envy you even a short stay in that beautiful city. I expect major pictures and dialogue once you're both there!

  3. Ah, the last days before departure! I remember them going too fast and too slowly all at once. Excitement (wow!), anxiety (what have I done?), anticipation (can't wait), nostalgia (look what I'm gonna miss).

    Take lots of photos and tell us your stories!

  4. Mark: I'm trying.

    Todd: They look like implants to me.

    Craig: I look forward to sharing it all!

    FDeF: The excitement is really building now. Just a few more days.

    Walt the Fourth: All that! Well, except the what have I done!

    Bob: I remember an animated something or other with mermen and yes they would be nice!

Please share your thoughts...
