OUR ONE DAY ADVENTURE TO TANGIER
Hans and I thought it would be fun to take a side trip to Tangier, while we were in Spain. So we went to our favourite local travel agency in Torremolinos and booked a day tour. This year's price ranges from a low of 50 Euros to as much as 80 Euros, so shop around.
We were picked up by bus at our hotel at 5:30 a.m. After picking up many more people, we drove along the coast to Algeciras for our embarkment by ferry to Tangiers. We crossed the Strait of Gibraltar. The sea was pretty calm so we had a pleasant trip there. We were greeted by our guide for the day and boarded the bus for our tour of the city. The fun begins.
Following the introductory bus tour of the city, we disembarked and started the next phase of the tour -- the walking tour. Our first stop was in a square near the Kasbah for the "Snake Charmers". We continued our walk until we arrrived at the Hammadi Restaurant for lunch. After lunch was the Oriental Rug demonstration, followed by the Spices demonstration. We then boarded the bus again as we were in for a real treat -- the obligatory Camel Ride. Yahoo!
All in all it was a fun day. It's different. That's why people come to Tangier. This fascinating city will introduce you to the culture and mystery of Morocco. But go with an open mind. Experience the Culture! Experience the sights, sounds, tastes and yes even the smells of Tangier.
Our Last Supper in Spain
The La Tartana Restaurante-Grille caters for all types of customers. You can select from traditional Spanish dishes, or the more usual 'British-type' meals, like steak, lamb or chicken. Do you really expect me to remember what we all ate? I know that Jaymes had chicken, and Mary had lamb cutlets. I think Carmen and I had steak of some sort. With sweets, and coffee, and our drinks (including a bottle of wine), the bill for 5 of us was 77 Euros. Not too bad for what was an enjoyable final meal in Spain.
Marbella has a great selection of Italian restaurants, some more expensive than others, some of them open for nearly 20 years.
Some suggestions are:
Economical and good quality at PIZZERIA LA FONTANILLA in Pablo Casals 10 street. For around 12 euros dish, desert and wine, who wnats to pay more? It has been open nearly 20 years now…
PASTA FACTORY has been also open for 20 years now also in Avda. Fontanilla, 3, 29600 Marbella Tel.: + 34 952 776 776 Food can be more expensive, dessert, wine and dish for around 25-30 euros, but the pasta is excellent. In summer they have a nice patio.
RESTAURANTE DA PINO in Gregorio Marañon, 8 ( 952 82 42 17) We had the euromeet Saturday dinner there, service was good (even if they were more interested in the girls than in service LOL) food was very nice, the tiramisu was one fo the bests I have had!! also it is settle in the promenade with great views to the beach
