"You smile with the hair of your eyes" (third and second day in Málaga but mostly third)
Alcazaba castle is big like a village and with what feels like the terrain of a village. It takes 20 minutes just to walk up, or like 40 if you stop to photograph. Which you of course do. In the middle of the walking paths are irrigation channels, cool.
At Museo Revello de Toro, which is the name of an artist,
I found this portrait instead of a signature in the visitors' book.
This was the first time that I saw a wild banana tree and a cactus tree. I had no idea cactuses could become tree-like, I always classified their looks as bushes.
At Casa Pepa, in the nearby village called Carratraca, they scream out the menu and you have little time to react, you are served huge plates, four dishes and desert and all only for 8 €. It is rural kitchen, but I didn't dare to try the mayonnaise and rice soup. This is somebody's home - the concept is known, it is as if you would have cooked food for yourself but make everything in a larger scale.
