The Power Of Love (El Poder Del Amor)

At the request of our friends at Mesón Salvador, today's post is first in English and then in Spanish (my fractured Spanish, forgive me). 
A petición de nuestros amigos de Mesón Salvador, el post de hoy es primero en inglés y luego en español (mi fracturado español, perdóname).

Every time we go to Mesón Salvador (our favorite restaurant in Fuengirola — and possibly the world), we not only enjoy an exceptional meal, but we are showered with love and affection. We receive hugs, kisses, and warm greetings from everyone. No matter our moods when we arrive, we are filled with love and joy (and good food) once there.

Cada vez que vamos a Mesón Salvador (nuestro restaurante favorito en Fuengirola — y posiblemente en el mundo), no sólo disfrutar de una comida excepcional, estamos llenos de amor y afecto. Recibimos abrazos, besos, y buenos saludos de todos. No importa nuestros estados de ánimo cuando llegamos, salimos llenos de amor y alegría (y buena comida).

ADRIÁN DECORATED A DESSERT FOR SAN GERALDO (CHOCOLATE, VANILLA, AND COOKIE-LAYERED CAKE).
ADRIÁN DECORÓ UN POSTRE PARA SAN GERALDO (TARTA DE CHOCOLATE, VAINILLA, Y GALLETA).
FOR SAN GERALDO.
PARA SAN GERALDO.
FOR ME.
PARA MI.
AND BECAUSE ONE DESSERT ISN'T ENOUGH...
Y PORQUE UN POSTRE NO ES SUFICIENTE...
DAVID, CAUGHT UNAWARES.
DAVID, COGIDO DESPREVENIDO.
ADRIÁN, ALEJANDRO, AND DAVID. THE STANDARD POSE.
ADRIÁN, ALEJANDRO, Y DAVID. LA ACTITUD ESTÁNDER.
THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I SAID, "MORE NATURAL!"
CUANDO YO DIGO, "MÁS NATURAL!"

Our "family" at Mesón Salvador is a perfect example of why we are so proud to call Spain home.

Nuestra "familia" en Mesón Salvador es un ejemplo perfecto de por qué estamos tan orgullosos de decir que España es nuestro hogar.


That's the power of love...
Ese es el poder del amor..

  2. I am not a fan of desserts, per se, but that trio of desserts, AKA Adrian, Alejandro, and David, are spectacular.
    I see several reasons why you love the place.

      It's not completely unusual in the more traditional, friendlier, local places to be referred to as "family." But at Mesón Salvador, they really mean it. I don't exaggerate when I say how much they all mean to us.

      We went here for lunch when we were down from Sevilla looking for an important -- simply because we had stopped at the hardware store a few doors down before lunch and before going to see our apartment for the first itme. We thought, "Well, this is convenient." We had no idea we were walking into one of the most popular -- with good reason -- local places (since 1969). We fell in love immediately and then ended up living within a short walk. Our first day in town, we went back .. And we were remembered. What a welcome.

      An incredible place. I've never experienced another like it. You know, I've been wondering: How are things in Glocca Morra? Is that little brook still leaping there?

  12. I wish you would write all your posts in Spanish and English, Mitchell! I love this!

    My Spanish lessons have been falling by the wayside because all of my Spanish speaking friends have moved away. This was fun and educational. :)

    Muchas gracious, mi amigo! Que tenga una buena noche, y a San Geraldo tambien! ( please excuse the missing punctuation marks, I can't do them on this keyboard........)

      Thanks so much for the feedback. I'm seriously considering it. It means many of our friends and acquaintances here can read my blog, too, and it's great practice for me (and I need it)! Another bi-lingual post is coming today.
