Our hotel in Torremolinos overlooks the beach. Tonight, most of our group opt for a tour to Mijas the “white village”, followed by seafood dinner along the beach. At 53 euros per person, we decline this opportunity and go shopping. Later we find an excellent Italian/Indian restaurant. Gundy eats Italian; I eat Indian. Both meals are delicious. The next day we decline the 57 euro optional excursion to Gibraltar. After breakfast, we catch a local bus to Mijas. We leisurely explore the twisting streets of the charming, delightful, white village, and return by local bus, for just 3 euros.
I lived in British Columbia, Canada´s western province, for most of my life. I was a teacher, and a college employee (various roles - instruction, recruitment, promotion, counselling, research), before re-inventing myself as an innkeeper. I designed and had built my B&B inn in Revelstoke, which I operated for nine years. At age 60, my wife and I retired to Uruguay, where we have lived for more than a decade.
