Fuengirola’s port is primarily a fishing port, keeping a close connection with the history of the city which was, before the advent of tourism in the late 1960s, a simple fishing village. Depending on the season, professional and recreational fisherman catch Bream, Snapper, Bonito, Mackeral, Rockling, Weever, and Conger, among other things. We see fishing boats from our windows every day. Apparently, the boats haven’t changed much in structure and appearance over the years.
|ONE COOL MORNING A FEW WEEKS AGO.|
One fishing boat in particular caught my attention, although I didn’t get to see it myself. We read in the paper this morning that Spanish customs agents seized a boat just off the coast (well, 110 miles off the coast) carrying 17 tons of hash. Since I’m no cook (by any stretch of the imagination), I can’t tell you which of the local fish make the best hash. But, what could anyone possibly do with 17 tons of fish hash?
Oh, wait… It says “hashish.”
