    Hi everyone, We went to Nerja today, it was a beautiful day around 80 degs.

    First off all we went to Ayo´s Restaurant on the Beach for Paella and they cook it on an open fire, thought you might like to see how its done
    There are also a few pics of other things in Nerja a my village.

    Enjoy, just wish you could all have been there :(

    Not expensive to eat here the meal was 21Euros thats thats around 29$. Don´t forget we had 4 plates Paella 2 bread rolls, a large lager, Large bottle water. The coffee was just 3€ for two. Does that compare well with the States?

    Maria, they have the smaller ones in the local Ferrateria here, but not got one. Have to say this is a tourist Paella, specially formulated for the tourists tastes. It containes Pork, Chicken, Prawns and cockles, usually has mussels as well, but didn´t have today. Real ones have squid, rabbit, red and green peppers mussels chicken prawns, in fact just throw it all in :D

    Oh, thanks for sharing Elle - your house looks lovely! And paella - yum! Was that 21 euros each or for both? At our 'local' we get three courses with wine for 8 or 12 euros per head, depending if you want the posh or normal menu! Coffee is a euro each!

    Kathryn, that was for the both of us.

    We get three courses here too for 7€ to 8€, that Menu del Dia. Usually a salad first then Pork chops vegetables and the inevitable chips, Sweet is usually icecream or flan. Coffee here varies in the village it 1€ but when we go elsewhere can be anything up to 1.50€, needless to say we don´t go back :D

    I am from Puerto Rico and live in NY. My friend from Spain (Valencia) wanted to make on in my house, and he made my husband go to China Town and look from shrimp with their heads aand eyes still on, and those don't come around here very often (in NYC).
