Dos cervezas por favor

Someone carrying two one litre glasses of beer through a crowd

Beer carried through a busy crowd in a market. Only a few drops of liquid dropped out of the glasses too! A guy behind him had a selection of tapas for wherever they were going!

La Capilla del Puerto de Málaga

A small church at one end of a shallow pool.

The chapel of the port of Málaga sits right in the middle of a now busy tourist area. It’s flanked by expensive restaurants, with towering apartment blocks behind it for tourists.

A review on Google maps (and Tripadvisor) is enlightening.

This is the Chapel of the Port of Malaga. Erected as an oratory in 1531 further out in the port area, but moved closer inland, brick by brick in 1719 and inaugurated as a chapel a few years later. It was used to say mass for seamen who were often extremely religious due in part to their dangerous profession. It’s a very old building and when juxtaposed against the modernity of Malaga Port, seems oddly out of place, yet all the more beautiful. Not a must see, but worth a detour if in the port area.

I can’t comment on how accurate that review is, as I couldn’t find any “official” page about the chapel, at least in English.

Lights in the rain

A rainy, wet street in Dublin at night. Two people walking towards me with umbrellas.

Rain pours out of the sky and runs along the pavement in this street in Dublin last year. It wasn’t a bad night if you had an umbrella.

Shelter from the rain

A group walking in the rain, some covering their heads with jackets. One young man looks in a shop window.

They’re heading to a Halloween party on a rainy October evening in Dublin. The guy looking in the window probably wishes he could get out of the rain, but the others around him show they’re not immune to the wet and are covering their heads.

Me? I was glad I brought an umbrella with me from Cork. I didn’t rub it in by bringing my Corcaigh umbrella…

Training on a bike

A boy on his training bike in the shadows cast by the Gaiety Theatre entrance.

A training bike is a great way to get kids used to cycling. In a busy city like Dublin, it’s probably best they don’t go on to the car filled roads too soon.

The Flower Seller

A man selling flowers on Graft Street watches as a woman looks for what she wants to buy

On Grafton Street, Dublin, you’ll find people selling flowers to passing pedestrians. There are a few of them, so business must be pretty good. Lots of foot traffic in the area, though. Lovely displays of colour too.
