Too Long At The Fair? / ¿Demasiado Tiempo En La Feria?

I USUALLY SHARE photos of Fuengirola's fairgrounds (in Los Boliches) during one of the many fairs that are held here. But the other day, I had a walk through the empty fairgrounds (public parking when not in use) and thought I'd show you what it looks like when I don't have to share the place with anyone else. I complain about the crowds; I missed the crowds. Go figure.

NORMALMENTE COMPARTO FOTOS del recinto ferial de Fuengirola (en Los Boliches) durante una de las muchas ferias que se celebran aquí. Pero el otro día, tuve una caminata a través del recinto ferial vacío (estacionamiento público cuando no está en uso) y pensé que te mostraría lo que parece cuando no tengo que compartir el lugar con nadie más. Me quejo de las multitudes; eché de menos a las multitudes. Imagínate.













"PEÑA" IS A ROCKY OUTCROP OR EOCKY SUMMIT, BUT IT CAN ALSO MEAN FAN CLUB OR ASSOCIATION.
I LOVE THE CAULIFLOWER SOCCER BALL.
ME ENCANTA EL FÚTBOL COLIFLOR.

Quería que la música siguiera sonando para siempre ...

      Eye is doing well. Thanks! Still healing, but I'm once again exercising (some) and cleaning up after Jerry.

  2. Very interesting and attractive architecture! I like the building with the pottery jug entrance, the building with the fan, the buildings with the polka dots and the guitar statue.

      That wine jug entrance is my favorite. And I love the fan and the polka dots, too. It's hard to take it all in when it's decorated, lit up, and filled with people.

  3. It looks rather sterile. Are you late, or are you early?

      Hmmm. Sterile is not a word I'd use. But it changes when there's something going on there. Lights, decorations...

  4. It's curiously eerie and beautiful at the same time.

      It's strange to walk through when it's empty -- once you've been there for a fair.

      Sevilla's fairgrounds are nothing more than vacant (desolate) lots when there's no fair. I find this kind of charming.

  7. It would be eerily at night if you were by yourself.

    And I ADORE Sasha Velour!

      Yeah, I don't know how thrilled I'd be to wander there alone in the dark.

  8. It's a very pretty ghost town, no?

      Yep. That's what we have most of the time. It gets SO boring (no it doesn't... but I for one do enjoy a rainy day).
