Tapas day two

After the success of yesterday's Tapas route, we caught the bus up to Vélez-Málaga to carry on drinking and eating our way through the town.
We managed four bars today, each lovely in different ways, but definitely the most eye catching tapa was this vertical effort from Taberna El Convento. Also, when I chewed my prawn, I heard loud popping noises, like mini explosions coming from inside my head! How weird, exploding orange sauce - only €2 each including wine.
We also explored the town which had ramparts and a fort with brilliant views across the town - down to the sea one side, and across the mountains inland, one even topped with snow.
The town was old with narrow streets and a mish mash of different shaped houses all nestled up close together. Although we are still on the Costa del Sol, both this area is very different to the other places that we have visited.  Vélez-Málaga and Torre de Mar are both busy Spanish towns full of Spanish people getting on with their lives, rather than having lots of empty tourist apartments and British fish and chip shops.
Having said that, our campsite is full of different nationalities, and we hear conversations being held in many languages. 
Our neighbours are all very friendly and lots of them have put little notices with their names on in front of their vans. We are just along the row from Mervi and Kennet, Ursula and Wolfgang, and Henri and Sabine amongst others. I think we must be missing out on some European socialising, so maybe we should make our own for the next site.
