In Malaga, we stayed in a hotel near the bus and train stations —
And, as in many other cities, the area was a lot more run down
Than in the centre of the city.
I thought it had a lot of character
With its urban decay and murals –
Some of them posed existential questions,
While others just wanted
To give peace a chance.

I spent a hot Sunday morning wandering around Malaga.
First stop – the main plaza in the old town
Where there was a wonderful photo exhibition by Salgado.
Then a quick stop at Cafe Central with its famous mosaic.
The empty glass of coffee sums up how I feel (horror vacui)!
My eye was drawn to the symmetry of the cloth
Protecting the main shopping street and old buildings from the sun.
Malaga Cathedral attracts a lot of visitors
With its fine architecture.
I was more fascinated by the neglected rear of the cathedral,
Where hundreds of cobwebs caught bird feathers
From the pigeons who live there.
