Malaga, Spain

Sun.May 29. Docked in Malaga.This is a large port with 2 warships in.This is Armed Forces Day and there will be a parade and crowds of people visiting the port to tour the warships and tanks etc.The King,Juan Carlos will come.Many of us took the tour "Marbella and Puerto Banus"
Marbella is an exclusive resort,once a fishing village until the tourists came because of the weather.Many wealthy Arabs bought land and built large mansions.Jose Banus was a friend of Franco's and was given permission to develop a port.We saw many expensive
yachts,most registered in the Cayman Islands.We were told that some were so big they had to dock in Malaga.Talk about "conspicuous consumption".The town was attractive with wrought iron balconies and several small squares.
