Benalmádena hospital

This rather new hospital in Benalmádena looks a little like a fortress.

The roofs are covered with a green carpet that looks too green to resemble real grass.

A wooden deck on the roof gives you access to a great view to the sea.

The whole complex is very large (8.864 m2), but the way it is constructed makes it fit quite nice with its surroundings, I think. I really like the arquitecture of this hospital.

Earth hour - 60 minutes blackout on Saturday

On Saturday at 8.30 pm the WWF wants 1 billion people to swich off their lights to show support for action to tackle climate change.

Businesses, official buildings and landmarks around the world are going to switch off the light for one hour. Here is the list of all the Spanish cities participating.

On the individual basis WWF suggests that you spread the word, switch of your lights, your computer or even host a candlelight dinner eg. You can find more ideas on their site.

Personally, I think I will light some candles and, if the weather permits it, sit on the terasse watching the sea and the sky in the company of nice people :-)

This plant makes a carpet hanging down from my terasse to the one below of tiny pink flowers when the sun is shining. It is really pretty.

On a wall covered with these duo flowers. I have never seen something like this before.

Shopping bags

Found these practical shopping bags in La Oca from Reisenthel. I am so fed up with all the plastic bags I get in the shops.

Now, the challenge is to remember to have one of these in my handbag when I leave the house ...

Visiting Vienna

Last week was spent in Vienna and it was very cold.

However, most of the days were spent inside working, but there was a little time to do some shopping and an evening visit to Haus des Meeres, a 9 floor aquarium.

A bretzel and a glass of wine is also great once in a while.

Highway A7

When you get on the highway from Benalmádena the view towards Málaga is very beatiful, especially on a clear day like this one.

Walk in the neighbourhood

This afternoon I went for a little walk in the neighbourhood. Actually I wanted to go to a supermarket to buy oranges for our morning juice, but was not sure that it would stay dry.

However, the clouds stayed over Monte Calamorro so I got the 2 kg of oranges and made a little detour through Camino de la Cantera. I have not walked there before and was positively surprised by the very nice view over the local golf course.

After the rain

The sun just popped out for a few hours today and you just crave to get out of the house - so did the snails. The smell of wet and leaves and earth is lovely.

Grey days

These days are rather grey and rainy. Saturday morning the sun was trying to break though the clouds and for a while it really looked like aliens seaching the sea for something at the bottom of the sea.

Something in the air

They must be really smelly !!! Seen in a street close to the María Zambrano station.
