144 – Painting the Town  Posted on 05/17/2015
In three corners of my life this month a blank canvas turned to life, colour and a floor covered with rice. “La Noche en Blanco” turns Málaga city into that blank canvas.  A night of culture, music, free entry to...

143 – How the Other Half Lives  Posted on 05/03/2015
This massive great cruise ship was in Málaga port last week.  It is either beautiful or ugly, I’m not sure which.  But it is big.  Umpteen floors, 6,500 passengers, 2,500 crew.   It’s the sister...

142 – Beer and Bocadillos – On the Government!  Posted on 04/21/2015
The course I’m on at Málaga’s Escuela Oficial de Idiomas is heavily subsidised by the Spanish government (thanks guys!).  So when the head of Spanish said we were going on a “school trip” we didn’t...

138 – England, Oh England  Posted on 03/04/2015
Got into the wrong side of the car once last week.  Too used to getting into the left seat now. Said “hola” to a stranger I passed on Shaftesbury’s narrow pavements.  Fortunately it was misheard, and fortunately...

137 – A Strange Week  Posted on 02/19/2015
I’ve never been one for the nine-to-five. And fortunately, I guess I’ve never really had to do it. Journalism involved some quite strange hours, as did provincial and touring theatre. Campaigning for the rights of community...

136 – It’s Official!  Posted on 02/12/2015
Yup, it’s official.  I’m officially a student at the slightly officiously-named Escuela Oficial de Idiomas (the Official School of Languages) in Málaga.  And I think the teacher just might be officially a...

135 – One Man and His Boat  Posted on 02/04/2015
I didn’t really fancy a museum.  It was a nice Saturday morning in Pedregalejo, I’d had a couple of coffees with Jose and then moved on to the intercambio meetup in the bar next door.  Nice to catch up with …...
