I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream

Thursday, 11th November 2010. Marbella.

Contemporary Andalucia is branded and sold as the Costa Del Sol, and is widely known as a meeting place and safe haven for white collar criminals, Russian mobsters and Pakistani gunrunners. Downtown Marbella, in the extension of Alameda Park, the  walk to the seafront is adorned with Salvador Dali’s beautifully surrealistic sculptures celebrating the end of fascism in Spain and the constitutional freedom of expression. The beachfront, however, is another story.

Marbella is the only Spanish city which has lost its right to local governance to Madrid due to extensive corruption. The city’s last elected mayors were a bartender and a secretary. Both were jailed for taking bribes from construction companies during the building boom.

    Marbella-elefant? Mmmmmen det ser ferie og laid-back ut, Knut. Og det er jo aldri helt feil. 🙂

    Selv om sol og blå himmel og gyllen sand kan være forrædersk. Holder på å fryse ihjel i en liten tysk bindeverksby på den namibiske kysten, med sol og strand. Og en havvind som går gjennom marg og bein. Heldigvis blir det innlandsørken og VARME i helgen. 🙂

    *Smask*

    *mumle* Misunnelig, jeg? Nesj, jeg syns det er helt topp å være her hjemme i sluddet, mørket og kulden, jeg. Jaaada, november er favorittmåndeden.

    Men, men, dere får ha det så bra som dere kan der nede i varmen.
