Just another day in Paradise

After seeing Oscar-winning The Green Book, we had to go to the Francisco I, aka the Backstop, because it was too early to go to Los Pajaritos. Oh dear ... we've gone native. We always enjoy the buzz in the Backstop, but oh, Los Pajaritos! What a bar. We arrived 15 minutes after it opened, and already it was a struggle to squeeze up to the bar and order. It's impossible to convey the atmosphere in a blip, so I didn't even try. You have to be there. As usual, two glasses of vino blanco and a tapa of crisply fried fish, 3.60. It's going to be hard to adjust to life without this. It seems the Día de Andalucia marks the beginning of spring ... let's partyyyyy! As we walked home at 9:30, we noted that all of a sudden people were sitting outside bars after dark.

We enjoyed the film, it makes a change for us to see a feel-good movie, but I'm quite surprised it won best film. Full of cliches and not much of a plot, but it was thoroughly entertaining.

Earlier, I drove to Granada to pick up my dead computer. The chap in the shop waived the 30-euro charge for looking at it, and showed me new Macbooks, but I couldn't quite bite the bullet. I will replace it with another Mac, but I'll wait till I get back to France.

Oh, the blip? It's the decor in the Francisco I. Kind of strange for a bar!
