Today the Robertson clan did alot of sight seeing. We went on a 1 and 1/2 hour double decker tour bus ride that took us through Barcelona. In the afternoon we went to the market again, followed by the modern art museum and the chocolate museum.

We considered visiting Morocco, but didn't since we were told it could be unsafe. Our day today in Malaga was very pleasant as we strolled around shopping and sightseeing. Picasso was from here, so we had to see the local museum of his work. A phenomenal dinner at a small Moroccan restaurant satisfied our African urge.
Today we put some kilometers on our feet... 21 in fact! Our trip, as usual, has been about being on the move. We have walked an average of 12 miles per day.

This is our transportation for the next few days. A few specs....
HP: not enough, fully loaded trucks pass this diesel going up hill
GEARS: 6 and badly geared, continuous shifting required to maintain forward motion
0 to 100 KPH: 45 seconds going downhill
PASSENGERS: I think we can fit at least 15 aboard, the family is comfortable
SUSPENSION: Mushy and tippy
LENGTH: Long enough not to fit in any parking space
HEIGHT: Too high to fit in any parking garage
WIDTH: 2 inches wider than streets in Granada Center
PARKING BRAKE: Not required since this beast can't be parked
After lunch we pressed on to the coastal city of Malaga. We took a wrong turn out of Ronda and it took us 3 hours rather than 1 and a half. The mountain roads were hell to drive. Our hotel had an exceptional view of the city.
