mijas-2016It was almost exactly two years ago when Victor and I last visited Janet Mendel in Mijas, so another day trip to that pretty village (and Janet!) was in order. We left Málaga at midday under mostly sunny skies but shortly after meeting up with Janet the skies opened up and we took shelter – where else? – in the nearest bar.

mijas-16-1Actually this segued into a three-stop tapeo, led by Janet, dodging the raindrops along the way. We weren’t so lucky at our last stop however, when as soon as we were ready to leave THIS happened…

STRANDED in Mijas. Umbrellas are back in Málaga. We may be here awhile. #Malaga #MalagaGetaway

But our hero Victor borrowed an umbrella from the bar (ours were all at home – duh) and went to collect the car, and on the way home we were rewarded with a spectacular rainbow.

mijas-16-2It was great spending the afternoon catching up with Janet (thanks so much for taking me Victor!) and hope we can all get together again soon. Perhaps in Córdoba?
