COSMOPOLITAN NERJA

NERJA by KRISS on 14 september 2015

So we've been in Nerja for a few months now, even opened an art shop there, which I am afraid we're going to have to let go for now, at least while we're in Costa Rica.

There is one amazing characteristic about this place, lots of places down there in Andalucia actually I think : they are very cosmopolitan cities.

It's a mix of all Northern Europe nationalities mostly and some spanish as well !

Nerja is a slow paced little town, actually I don't know if it's really slow paced but spanish horarios make you think so.
Shops hardly open before 10am, school finishes at 2pm.
You never lunch before 3pm.
You nap and go back to work around 6pm until 9 or 10pm.

Of course you tend to eat late at night and go to bed quite late.
For those of you who are party animal, don't mock me, I have been there believe me and right now I have a family to raise and this requires a lot more energy than partying.
Also I ain't 20 anymore !

So back to Nerja, you will find many shops, more or less falling into the following categories :

-Souvenirs. -Clothes and bags. -Jewels. -Chinese bazars.

For such a pretty little sun drenched place it's a pity really, only a few artistic shops while the neighbor tiny Frigliana hosts so many more comparatively.

Then food wise, the choice is good but again, only one churreria to my knowledge and not necessarily well placed.
Most options are quite repetitive and tourist oriented.

Anyways life feels great in this tiny little town and people should wander a bit outside of the 3 main streets which are crowded at all times while the rest of the Pueblo seems abandoned.
