Malagueña Salerosa

Darlings! Greetings from Málaga, Spain, where yours truly is attending an international wedding between French and Spanish subjects, and generally having a beautiful time in this mediterranean port city with lots of joie de vivre, a la española.

Yesterday we had a soupy paella overlooking a garden. At night we went to one of the little restaurants at the beach in Pedregalejo (about an hour walk from the center, by the sea) and had a fish and seafood feast for a very reasonable price. Fresh tiny clams, other spectacular clams called conchas finas, an amazing fresh grilled dorade, a perfect simple salad with lettuce, tomato and onion, and perfect glasses of beer, the way you can only get in Spain. I declared myself officially happy.

Today, a perfect breakfast of fresh orange juice and a pitufo catalán, which, is not a catalan Smurf, but a small baguette, like a Mexican bolillo with Serrano ham, olive oil and tomato. YUM.
Turrón ice cream at Casa Mira. Qué cosa más buena.
The weather is superb, sunny yet not hot. The wedding is tomorrow.
