After handing the bikes back on the previous evening, rather than spend the night in Teba we decided to hitch a ride back to Malaga with Mike's driver who had to drop another guy back to the airport for his return flight to London. We booked a 3 bed room in the centre of town and went out to get some dinner in the city. Fortunately it was quite a bit warmer than Teba which was starting to get quite chilly by the time we departed.

We eventually found a small restaurant down a side alley and ate al fresco style. It was not long before the rain band hit Malaga so we had a short walk dodging between building trying to stay dry.

Next morning we packed up and stowed out kit with the hotelier while we further explored the city. By midday Alex was looking to feed his tape worm, so we found a outdoor setting at a local tavern on a busy corner and spent a couple of hours drinking beer and commenting on the various scenes presented to us. People begging, a few street performers, police emergencies people of all shapes sizes and nationalities - just the normal.

After that we decided to take in a little more of the culture and found a rather nice Roman Catholic Cathedral, however and quite unusually they wanted to charge an admission fee so we elected not to go in. Instead I gave a donation to a woman in the courtyard who looked like she needed the money more than the church.

Finally the time came for us to get back to the hotel, collect our gear and to make our way to the airport which we duly did after saying farewell to Alex who was on a flight back to Germany the following morning.

The rest all went well except our change over of flight at Munich was extremely tight. We made it of course, but Mike and I were the last ones on the plane. Holiday over.
