Go take a hike / Ve a dar una caminata

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

I walked to Sohail Castle (built by the Moors in 956 AD) and around the grounds yesterday afternoon. Nearly two and a half hours always on my feet and almost constantly on the move. Except for when I stopped to take these photos (and a couple more you’ll see another day). I have stories to tell, but I’ll let you enjoy the quiet instead.


Caminé hasta el castillo de Sohail (construido por los moros en 956 d.C.) y recorrí los terrenos ayer por la tarde. Casi dos horas y media siempre de pie y casi constantemente en movimiento. Excepto cuando paré para tomar estas fotos (y un par más que verás otro día). Tengo historias que contar, pero dejaré que disfrutes de la tranquilidad.

• Check out what’s about to happen to the guy in the red trunks. I had nothing to do with it. Sorry I didn’t catch the splash.
• Echa un vistazo a lo que le va a pasar al chico de los calzoncillos rojos. No tuve nada que ver con eso. Lo siento, no cogí el chapoteo.
• Archaeological digs on the grounds of Sohail Castle. Phoenician column? Roman?
• Excavaciones arqueológicas en los terrenos del Castillo Sohail. ¿Columna fenicia? ¿Romano?
• Monk parakeets overseeing the work.
• Periquitos monjes supervisando la obra.
• I wasn’t all the way up the hill. You can see the three dig sites in center.
• Yo no estaba todo el camino hasta la colina. Puedes ver los tres sitios de excavación en el centro.
• I couldn’t decide which I liked better. Color?
• No podía decidir cuál me gustaba más. ¿Color?
• Or black and white?
• ¿O en blanco y negro?

      Oh, yeah. All over Málaga. They present problems for local bird populations. The City of Málaga has been discouraging them.

  1. All part of the learning process…..SPLASH!
    The Monk Parakeets look very inquisitive.
    The B/W photo takes me to a different era thus adding to the subject’s story.
    The colour photo accounts for its present context in time.
    Would LOVE to watch that ‘dig’ in progress.

    1. Jim:
      The monk parakeets are smart, cute, and invasive. Just read more about the dig. Will share later today. I still owe you recipes!

  2. Check out the expression on the face of the guy on the right. Enjoying the impending splash.

    1. Steve:
      I think I lean towards the color version, too. The parakeets are pretty but very invasive. The City of Málaga is working on ways to discourage them.

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      Chuck would love that. And, why don’t you take a long walk off a short pier!

Please share your thoughts...
