I come from Málaga / De Málaga vengo

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

AS YOU CAN SEE FROM the photo above taken this morning, it’s still raining. It’s also still hazy and likely coming down mud. I’d prefer cats and dogs. San Geraldo walked to the supermarket last night for a couple of things he needed to make Hungarian goulash. Four minutes there and four minutes back. He and the grocery bag were covered in mud.

I think I’ll stay inside. Maybe I’ll hit the gym early Saturday and Sunday. So, after a view from the terrace just before sunset last night, it’s back to Málaga for some art-filled images from last week. Click the thumbnails to engrandize.


COMO PUEDES VER EN LA foto de arriba tomada esta mañana, todavía está lloviendo. También está todavía borroso y es probable que baje lodo. Prefiero gatos y perros. San Geraldo caminó al supermercado anoche por un par de cosas que necesitaba para hacer goulash húngaro. Cuatro minutos de ida y cuatro minutos de vuelta. Él y la bolsa de la compra estaban cubiertos de barro.

Creo que me quedaré dentro. Tal vez iré al gimnasio temprano el sábado y el domingo. Entonces, después de una vista desde la terraza justo antes del atardecer de anoche, regresamos a Málaga para algunas imágenes llenas de arte de la semana pasada. Haz clic en las miniaturas para agrandar.

• Near the overhead art I love (click here).
• Cerca del arte de arriba que amo (haz clic aquí).
• Getting ready for Semana Santa. Are you penitent?
• Preparándose para Semana Santa. ¿Estás arrepentido?
• Church of Saint John the Baptist. 16th Century.
• Iglesia de San Juan Bautista. Siglo XVI.
• I didn’t price the planters. I was tempted. Wouldn’t they be great on the terrace?
• No pregunté el precio de las macetas. Yo estaba tentado ¿No quedarían genial en la terraza?

  1. 1) You need to try on that purple hat in the window.
    2) I would have gone for the golden zeppelin instead of the planters.
    3) Ooooo! The penitents are wearing pastels these season. How festive!

    1. wickedhamster:
      1) I think the hat is just a bunch of flowers attached to hair. I need hair.
      2) We need higher ceilings for the golden zeppelin. But couldn’t I have the zeppelin AND the planters?
      3) The penitents wear every color of the rainbow (just about) but black is the new pastel on Good Friday.

  2. Raining here as well……much needed I dare say.
    Yes, those planters would look good on your terrace.

    1. Jim:
      I think I’ll go back and check on the price of the planters. Maybe just the one on right for the terrace. Still raining here. It looks like clear rain now, but there is so much mud from the Sahara and from the wet.

  3. I can handle regular rain but mud/rain is another issue indeed. As a child my family would rent a cottage on a beach in a place called Medford. This mud covered desperado at the end of your post looks like our family after slugging through the muds of a low tide beach. I loved it really and + we got a full body mud pack for free. Yeah.

    1. Ron:
      The first time I ever went to a lake, I was repulsed by the feeling of mud under my feet. It actually shocked me having only been on sandy or stony beaches. My mother sat in a chair on the grass and kept her sandals (with heels) on the entire time.

  4. What a mess, but I’m glad you had images of great street art to share. And was that SG after his run for the groceries in the last shot?

    1. Damnit Wilma! I thought it would be safe to drink coffee while reading here! But nooooooo! Another nose snort added to the tally.

    2. Wilma:
      When they sent that muddy image, I actually thought it was Pedro, but it could, too, have been SG after the grocery run.

  5. I love that raven bird thingy! Scary and creepy, and yet beautiful. The planters, not so much.

    1. Deedles:
      I feel the same about the bird… scary, creepy, and beautiful. I love the planter on the right. If it didn’t cost 300€ (my guess), I’d buy it.

  6. I don’t know what type of penitence is involved in Semana Santa, but that costume would fit right in at a Ku Klux Klan rally!

    1. Tundra Bunny:
      Just think heavy Catholic (or any kind of) guilt and you’ll know the penitence. The first time we saw those costumes, we gasped, but we appreciated they’d been around a lot longer than the Ku Klux Klan. Then again, look what happened here centuries ago.

    1. Debra:
      I assume the KKK got their inspiration here. I still find it disturbing to see those costumes.

    1. Jon:
      Oh, yeah, we are definitely over the muddy rains. I think they’re done. Now there’s just the major mess to clean up. Thankfully, all we have to deal with are our windows (and railings and ledge) and our car.

    1. Bob:
      I love that shop window. Málaga has some great street art. I’ll have to make a tour of a bunch of it.

  7. Ah, rain. We need some, if for no other reason than to wash the dried orange mud off of everything. I used a sponge that was in the “floor sponge” bin (old sponges we use to wipe up drips and spills on the kitchen floor before tossing) to wipe down the railing on the deck yesterday. K whined, “You ruined my favorite pink sponge!” Uh-oh.

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      I have a couple of old pink sponges if Ken needs a replacement. I’m hoping the continuing rain washes away the worst of the mud on our railings. Then I’ll drag a cleaning rag across them.

    1. David:
      The two planters would fit without a problem, but I’d really like only the one with the mustache. Still, not necessary and probably ridiculously expensive. It was one of those designer chic home furnishings showrooms.

  8. Raining mud? Yuck! Now I have to look back at other posts to see why your world is muddy. I love the street art.


    1. janiejunebug:
      I’ve got to get back and find so much more street art. The city is filled with it.

    1. Kirk:
      I’d buy just the one with the mustache and let him pucker in my direction.
