Day 192: Alhama to Málaga

Wednesday October 12, 2005, 91 km (57 miles) – Total so far: 11,849 km (7,363 miles)

It was a great descent back to the coast with good weather and nice views. In places it was very green and could almost have been Austria. We stopped for lunch just short of the coast in Trapiche, before heading west down to Malaga.

We had to stop for road-side repairs a few times today, Agata has a re-occurring puncture and we’re out now of spare tubes and patches.

We’re staying in a fairly cheap hotel in Málaga, €€35 a night and it’s right by the sea. Málaga seems a grand old city and not too badly influenced by the cheap tourism of the Costa just down the road.
