Final Post from Spain

Probably our final post from Spain as we leave for the Malaga airport early tomorrow morning. Then overnight in London and back home. Norah and I saw Kaila off at the train station here in Antequera this morning. She´s taking a different route to London and then Geneva. It was great having her with us. She laughed at me the whole time for worrying about her over these 2 weeks while she´s been on her own here for months.

Antequera is a Truro or so sized town 40 kms or so inland from Malaga. Stone age, Roman, Muslim and Spanish settlement going back over 5,000 years. We also visited the El Torcal national Park in the sierra outside of town. Beautiful and strange limestone rock formations and views out across the plain and also to the sea.

Catching up since the last post. Salobreña was a wonderful old beach town, and warm and sunny as well. Probably my favorite place. We then took the bus along the cost back to Malaga. Large seaside developments tucked between the hills, cliffs and shore for 100 km or so. Malaga was in it´s pre christmas holiday. Streets all lit up and thousands promenading.

I´ll leave it there for now. CT

Norah and Chris, I love the sound of sandals on the beach, however it is gorgeous here in NS after a snowfall of about 10-15 cm overnight. Tom and the girls got away early to Mt. St. Anne for some training. They were very excited and Rachel especially because she finished exams yesterday. Looking forward to having you back, it must have been hard to say Goodbye to Kaila, but just think we get to see her in Feb. Love, Mary

And right I was to laugh at you! If I can make it from Germany to Holland or from Holland to Spain completely alone, I can certainly make it 50m from the internet place to our hotle :-P

Glad you had a good trip, it was good to see you! I can't wait to open my presents :-)

Love,
Kaila
