Most Mondays and Thursdays the Multicines Atlantida in Arrecife shows an up to date English speaking movie. So last night we went mob handed, seven in all to see La Momia (The Mummy) staring Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. But lets start at the beginning. We left Charco del Palo at about 5.30pm and headed into Arrecife. Our favorite stopping off point for a small snack and a little drink is a restaurant in San Gines called Divina Italia. This great little restaurant opens at 4.30pm and serves really nice pizza's until 7pm. When the chef comes on shift at 7pm the full menu is available. Now baring in mind that you will be out of the cinema by 9.30 you could always eat after the movie. San Gines is buzzing at this time of night, the bars and restaurants are all full and there is a great atmosphere. But we stopped off for pizza and a drink before moving on to the cinema. The cost for a normal ticket is 6€ and for a resident and pensionista as Alan and I are the cost is only 5.20€, a bargain. So we are in the theatre, the trailers have all played (15mins) and the movie starts, but it is in Spanish ! we are about 10mins in when someone shouts, its ok they are changing the movie to English, to which there was laughter and clapping. But we had to sit through all the trailers again, boring....... La Momia was ok, it was a bit of a romp along movie, I screamed out on at least two occasions, the obvious one was when someone was leaning over La Momia and you know she is going to wake up and grab him but I still nearly leapt into Gareths lap with a scream. All good fun.

Alan and I have just got back from a weeks holiday in mainland Spain. We flew into Seville then drove on to Cordoba for a few nights. We stayed in the old part of the city in the Exe Conquistador Hotel which is opposite the Mezquita Cathedral. Had we not used google maps I think we would still be driving around looking for the hotel. And, just when we thought we had it all sorted, we missed a turn and we couldn't turn back, and our destination changed from 2 mins to 20mins, we had to drive all around the city again to get back to our missed road, I hasten to add we did not miss it the second time around. The streets are a bit narrow to say the least (see photo below). We visited the Mesquita one morning before it got hot, Oh did I mention just how hot it was, 43º to 46º by lunchtime, unbearable to be honest, anyhow our visit to the Mesquita was at 8.30am and it was still cool inside. We booked to go to the bell tower for 10am to get a better view of the city, well worth the climb and only 2€ each, bargain.
Regardless of the heat we had a great few days in Cordoba, we found some really nice restaurants, did a bit of retail therapy, and found a nice bar that served Aperol spritzers, my favourite, very nice, Lambo stuck with the VAT's.
We ended our holiday in a villa just outside Malaga, so this part of the holiday was for relaxing and swimming, I am pleased to say that it was a little cooler near the coast, but not that much.
All in all a very nice trip.
Just thought I'd share this holiday with my friends. xx
