“Travels to a Different Time” : 30June1972: Torremolinos, Spain: Finding an Apartment

We have moved to the ocean to Torremolinos which is relatively close to Malaga and is popular with European tourists. There is a big building boom on so this town is going to be an even huger tourist destination. Our apartment has a kitchen and a balcony facing the ocean. After unpacking we went to a local restaurant and had a delicious meal of paella. We retuned home for a swim in the pool and headed out for some tapas which are a whole bunch of small dishes. I loved the potatoes and the octopus. Back home to bed and I think we will be over the jet lag tomorrow.

3July1972: Torremolinos, Spain: The Beach Smells Like a Sewer: Off to the Tabu Discotheque: CAVA at 5 Cents a Bottle

We have a big market just around the corner full of meat, fish and vegetables. We bought two pounds of shrimp for $2 and some type of local fish. A North American meal of hamburgers for lunch. After a siesta it was to the beach down the street which smelt like a sewer. We met a couple of Americans and went back with them to their hotel and swam in their pool. We came home and had shrimp and fish for dinner and Mom had some sparkling wine she paid 5 cents a bottle for. We met the two Americans after dinner and I went off to the Tabu discotheque and Mom and the Americans went to Club Cleopatra. We met up at 1 a.m. and headed home
