Picture of the Week

Week 11: just a normal week in Alicante

Filed under: — Administrator @ 22:15

Following the excitement of Paris, last week was just a regular week of going to work, walking my dog, and going about my daily business. So the pictures are perhaps less exciting but more challenging since I had to find them in the midst of ordinary, mundane activities.

Sandro works in our finance department. He is Italian, and this has been a good week for him. Ferrari won the first F1 race of the season, and then Inter Milan eliminated Chelsea from the Champions League:

Alternate 3
St Patrick’s day in one of our local watering holes. No big party, just a quiet evening at this particular bar:

Alternate 4
Friday was a holiday here, so my wife and I went out for lunch. This is what a typical lunch in a modest restaurant starts with: good bread and salad to share:

Saturday morning was foggy, so I went down to one of the local beaches:

I continue to be fascinated by wall art. There is a lot of it around here, and it goes well beyond graffiti.

A local hardware shop:
