Buenos dias from the Costa del Sol! This holiday is just what the doctor ordered; it has been amazing! In fact, I've reached the point where I'm in complete denial that we'll ever leave.

We've been on two day tips to two very unique locales: Gibraltar and Ronda. The monkeys on Gibraltar were great and yesterday we hired a fabulous tour guide to show us around Ronda. Today we are taking it easy just relaxing on the beach and/or by the pool. Both are a little chilly for swimming but just fine for laying on a chaise and reading a book. The resort does have two indoor pools, one for families and one that is for adults only although yesterday when we tried out the adult pools (there are also separate outdoor pools) I felt like I was in a library because it was so quiet. I suppose we could venture over to the "Zona Topless" if we really need to spice it up...or see some National Geographic-style porn.

I highly recommend the Costa del Sol if you're in Europe and looking for a beach vacation. There are parts that remind me of south Florida only with more culture and less Spanish speakers. I'm now going to resume my vacation but I wanted you to all know I'm "back from the brink" thanks to the terrific Mediterranean sunshine and my wonderful TOIAW.

Glad you are enjoying southern Spain. I lived in Madrid for 3 years and enjoyed many trips down to the costa! Ronda is one of my favorite little towns. Another cute town is Mijas. Que disfrutes!
