After a long and lazy lunch yesterday we were given a brief tour of barrio Lagunilla by the fabulous Victor @welovemalaga. Still very much a neglected part of town, the locals are trying to create an authentic “soho” area that will perhaps attract attention and much needed funds to breathe new life into the barrio. Really liked a lot of the street art, though I wouldn’t feel very safe walking around there on my own. Maybe this will change.
Exciting times. We Love Tapas has a whole new look! With some help from the wonderful Aldara I was gently nudged into looking at some other theme options. And while the site is still a bit “under construction” (photos need retaking, logo will be changing, and some other tweaking needs doing) here’s a sneak preview of the new WLT site. What do you think?
It was a night off from tapas tours, so of course I ended up hanging out in bars. Actually, it was mixing pleasure with business as I had to meet with a couple of bar owners, and then wanted to check out a newly opened place. Meanwhile I managed to get this cool shot at Las Teresas. I had never really noticed that hand-painted plate on the wall and to get closer to it I had to go behind the bar. Then Rafa bought us a round on the house and we chatted for another half hour or so. I love this bar, I love the people who run it, the guys who work there, and I’ve been going there for over 20 years. Just like with most of the bars I’ve ended up working with. It’s an amazing job when you don’t really notice when you’re working or when you’re just there socialising. Love my job.
