Being away from the beach, El Jazzy Bar is a peaceful place for morning coffee or afternoon lunch or drinks. The chef, Tess, is half-English and half-Spanish and equally charming in both languages. We don't know all the staff but everyone has always been welcoming (and kind of cool). Today, we met Raquel, who happens to be from Sevilla. She's been living here just slightly longer than we have. She agrees with us that, although she misses the city, you can't beat the quality of life in Los Boliches (Fuengirola, Málaga).
As you probably know, San Geraldo and I always have, if not fascinating, at least entertaining conversations. Yesterday morning at El Jazzy was one of those highly intellectual exchanges. And last night San Geraldo brought up the subject again.
He began, "Remember what we were talking about at El Jizzy this morning?"
I never did remember.
(And if you don't know what "jizzy" means, all I'll tell you is it's NOT a genre of music.)
