Feria de Málaga
A friend arranged for us to go to Málaga this coming Wednesday, August 11th. I was planning on coming back on Saturday, the 14th. However, I just read that the feria starts on the 13th at midnight! Will I see anything worthwhile of the feria on Friday night?
At the latest, I could stay until Sunday.
I have always heard the feria is really good and I don't want to come home without some feria fun.
Thanks and happy travels,
Re: Feria de Málaga
The Feria in Malaga is perhaps the biggest party in the south of Spain. If you get the chance you should surely go, Usually they last at least a week. You will see such wonderful things as senors and senoras will be dressed in their finest.
I attended a Feria in Jerez a few years ago and it was such a wonderful experience - one I will never forget. Be sure to take lots of pictures.

SEMANA SANTA (EASTER)
I think that the most incredible thing about the Malaga customs is the way people celebrate Easter. If you have never been to this kind of celebration in the south of Spain before, I definitively RECOMMEND you to come here and see how amazing this is. I live in the north of Spain, and the way we celebrate easter has nothing to do with the way people celebrate easter in the south. You will see so many 'procesiones' every day!!! It´s impossible walking around without coming across with at least 3 or four procesiones. Each 'procesion' (i don't know how to translate it) consists of two thrones: Christ's Throne and the Virgin' throne. These thrones are very heavy, so about 100 people or so (i have not counted them but they are a lot!!!) are needed to carry it on their shoulders. The Christ's throne comes on the first position and behind him comes his mother who cries for his son. And between them there are lots of Nazarenos carrying candles, music bands...
A very nice trip to do is to...
A very nice trip to do is to Ronda! This small village is built on the edge of a precipice and has a very nice flair. Although it is not exactly off the beaten path, only few tourists compared to the other Andalucian cities go there. Defenetively a must-see!

The nicest restaurant we visited in Malaga was La Reja, which specialises in dishes from Asturias (in the north of Spain). The restaurant is a located on Plaza Uncibay, a few blocks north west of the Picasso Museum.
We liked the restaurant as soon as we walked in the door. There were more locals than tourists in for lunch and the decor was simple but elegant.
The food was excellent. We tried a variety of raciones (basically a full plate): berenjenas fritas (fried aubergines with honey), a random fish dish that our waiter recommended and a plate of Asturian cheeses, including the strong cabrales cheese. To wash this down we shared a bottle of cider, a speciality of Asturias. It had a wheaty, fruity taste and went very well with the food.
The prices were also very impressive. The cider was relatively expensive though each racion cost only 4 Euro each.
