Aboard ms Rotterdam, calling at Malaga, Spain.
Today we were in Malaga, the well-known southern Spanish city.
From the terminal, a five-minute shuttle ride took us into the city centre where there was a nice, large shopping area. We took a hop-on/hop-off bus and toured Malaga.
Back on the ship there was a barbecue, and I was told that local food was brought on from shore and served as tapas (yes, we are in Spain) in combination with the barbecue food.
In the theatre there were two shows by a trumpet player. Holland America Line works with the best artists, so we were curious. What a show! It was one hour of the best in trumpet playing, going through times from Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong to Herb Alpert. There was a standing ovation for this show.
