Our home owners got back from their travels and were very pleased with us, which is always nice to hear. They took us out for lunch (full English Breakfast for me, Churros for Tanbay) and then insisted that we drink lots of Spanish beer with them. We've been pretty much teetotal since we left Germany so needless to say we got drunk very quickly, which made for a fun evening!
The Flamenco Dancers
I even managed to make a video of the best flamenco dancer:
The Other Shops in Mijas
Mijas has a lot of shops and although they are pretty much all aimed at tourists, they were still all awesome! There were lots of shops selling real leather which smelt amazing. There were also lots of shops selling really cute little (pointless) bowls that had been hand painted. I had to exercise a lot of self control not to buy them all.
The Creepy Churches
Wherever we are we love to have a look at the churches - they're normally free and outstanding examples of architecture. We had a look in three churches in Mijas and I've got to admit they were a bit creepy!
Man I hope he went to heaven. Anyway, there was no creepiness in here and it was surprisingly warm for a cave.
The Mija's Bullring
Mijas has a pretty unique bull ring - the seats are only at both ends (not all the way around the edge as is tradition). It's also the smallest bullring in Spain (according to Trip Advisor). We didn't see any bull fights in Spain we think it's a bit cruel. Saying that we don't really know anything about shows involving bulls - only that bulls dislike the way the flag waves not the fact that's it red (thank you GCSE science).
The View from Mijas
Even on the only dreary day ever in Spain, the view was still fantastic! With the mountain on the left and the sea straight ahead it really was breathtaking. We would have loved to see it on a sunny day (we'll just have to come back). Saying that, we went for a nice walk around Mijas which would have been a lot harder with the usual sun.. Here's what we saw on the walk:
