Week 30: tiki bar

Filed under: — Administrator @ 22:37

Another week of summer life in Alicante.

Main

The alternates
:

Alternate 1
Alicante airport is one of the busiest in Spain, with 95% of all travelers being sun seekers from Northern Europe. Some are already very tired upon arrival:

Alternate 2
On Sunday I took a short motorcycle ride, and stopped to take some pictures of an abandoned farm house, a sight common in Spain:

Alternate 3
Spain has many laws on the books. However, actual compliance with those laws can be spotty. Here is a sign along a mountain road, promising huge fines for dumping garbage. Clearly, the threat is not very effective:

The rest of the images are from our beach. Regular visitors to the site may get bored with the beach and babes, but well, that is what life revolves around in July in Alicante…

Alternate 4
Along our beach, some creative graffiti:

Alternate 8

Alternate 9
We go there to watch the sports, however:

Alternate 10
This couple were not interested in the volleyball:
7203486

Alternate 11
The bar is nice, but it is about 1.5 km walk from our house. Late at night at this time of year, it is still quite warm. So one evening, after arriving home from the bar, the family decided on a dip in the pool:
