España day 1


I started my trip walking around MIA with mami, vicky, and jamel for a few hours.  just to be safe for an international flight.  They left and i sat and waited at the gate for a while, noticing that it was very quiet and not many people. hmm.  long story short: they changed gates, i didn't know.. and i had to catch a shuttle and run to the right gate. lol 
Madrid's airport is beautiful. 

Now i'm here in Alicante with papi, his wife's family, and the baby.

as soon as i got here, my dad wanted to show me around the neighborhood so we went walking. His wife's sister owns a bar so we passed by there to have my first tapa. no drinks tho, i was still on my time.  came back to their place and passed out for a much needed long nap.
woke up and we went to the downtown area by the beach... the Mediterranean Sea. it's beautiful. it reminds me of Bayside in Miami.  restaurants along the walk with little shops selling jewelry.

this is the Castillo Santa Barbara which is right in front of the beach.  Next to the castle there's rocks and if you look, you can see what looks like a profile of a face.  It's said to be the face of a Moroccan king or something they explained to me.  I just think it's cool to see the profile in the rocks.

that's all for now.  i'm sleepy.

Stumbled across your blog via "Lil' Woman"...I was lucky enough to visit Alicante in 99, that wavy sidewalk picture brings back memories. I'm jealous - I LOVE Spain!
