Week 06: showing friends around Alicante

Filed under: — Administrator @ 08:27

This past week I did not travel anywhere. On the contrary, I had friends from Denmark visiting, so during the weekend I was a tour guide in my own city.

A sight I sometimes see when cycling through El Campello. A herder is setting out with his flock to go to a pasture:

Seen during the morning dog walk. Some small child is unhappy this morning, but hopefully all be well later in the day:

Winter means dramatic clouds and light from time to time, like in this view of Alicante from my office:

On Thursday I went for lunch at Capricho de Raquel, a favourite restaurant on the beach in Urbanova. Just as we were arriving at the restaurant, fog rolled in from the sea:

About 1 1/2 hour later, the fog has disappeared as quickly as it had appeared:

On Friday afternoon, my childhood friend Beata arrived from Copenhagen, with her partner Ricardo and their two children, Astor and Natalia. The children insisted on getting into our pool even though it was only about 17-18C:

Astor is clearly the braver of the two:

On Saturday, we went for a walk around Alicante. Ricardo is a freelance photographer, and Astor wants to imitate his dad, as 10-year old boys often do:

The last three images from our walk have a common theme: women with smartphones, but in different situations.
