my roommate at the time decided she wanted to check out Málaga for the weekend and invited me along.
Malaga is on the coast and is where one of the larger airports are located. It is not uncommon to fly into Malaga and take a bus to surrounding cities. We arrived and caught a taxi to our hostel. It was my first time booking a hostel and I was curious to see what it would be like. Our dorm was on the second floor and had a patio with a gorgeous view! It was sunny on Friday, which allowed for some great pictures. We spent the latter half of the day walking around, going to the Picasso museum, and calling it an early night. The next morning we were up early to explore the Alcazaba. It was similar to the Alhambra, but a bit smaller and with more palm trees. The evening was spent eating tapas (not free outside of Granada), going to the movies (Boychoir: I highly recommend it!!) and finding a place that sold fresh-fruit popsicles (mango!). It was a short trip and we were on the bus home the next morning to get back to our homework, but for the short time we spent there, Málaga was wonderful.
