Málaga, Spain and the Alhambra 1980
My parents have been going through their old slides and scanning them. Here are some highlights of a trip they took with my father’s parents to Málaga, Spain, where they visited the Alhambra and the surrounding region, as well as my grandfather’s brother, who came down from Madrid.
Seriously, my grandmother was one of the original hipsters. They lived in an apartment between Sunset and Hollywood Boulevard, she wore wigs and false eyelashes, and used to get dolled up after working days as a nurse. They showed up at my wedding with my grandfather in a big sherpa-lined western coat and my grandmother in an elaborate caftan.
Not sure if these slides are also of the Alhambra or of the Alcazaba, as they were separated from the pictures above, but I think they are also of the Alhambra. Either way, it’s another example of the beautiful Moorish architecture throughout the Andalusia region.
