Today we decided to take a trip into Cartagena, a beautiful city in the region of Murcia. We took a walk around the town, which has been rebuilt due to many past attacks. It has been and still home to a very important military port. We visited the Teatro Roma. How exquisite!
After we left the Teatro Roma, we drove to the top of a hill, where you have a beautiful view of the city, especially the navy base.
After returning to the resort, we decided to go for a swim. But today we went to another pool . Then we stopped by where we were last night, which was crowded with people. There was an "eagle show" being hosted. We grabbed a couch and waited for the show to start. They had a number of interesting trained birds. Though it was very exciting (the eagle flew legit a centimeter over my head!) and fun for the kids, I hate seeing animals in this kind of environment. I secretly wished they would all fly away during their "performances". But that's neither here nor there. After the show, we returned to our room to shower and prepare dinner. Tonight was pasta night. Though it was not like the Italian pasta I'm used to back home. Anyway, it was fine and there was watermelon for dessert so all was well :D
We are heading back home to Madrid tomorrow.
The next morning we woke up, had coffee and breakfast and packed our bags. We checked out but headed back to J's cousin's room to keep our bags for the day. We went to the "other" pool in the resort. The fancy one directly outside the hotel. I've included pictures below. They had a fun game for the kids here. They would enter a large plastic ball where they would try and stand up as a woman pulls it around the pool. The kids had a blast. We had lunch back at the room. I made a salad with tuna (yum) and C made me us tuna omelettes.
Adios Murcia! <3
