When we were there, we met a lot of people who spent the winters there. Most were from states like Montana or Wyoming that have terrible winters. But I think if I were going to do that, I would want to rent an apartment, not stay in a hotel room with a stove that frightened me. We never cooked on it.
That third week, some people went back to Mija on the train or bus because it's so lovely and they felt they hadn't had long enough there. Some of us walked around Torremolinos, went up those stairs to the upper part of town. Had drinks and listened to music in the square. I walked down the other way where I found a supermercado and a launderette and a used bookstore run by a German lady.
It was just a great trip with a lot of time on the tours - Sevilla, Ronda, etc. Why did they discontinue it?
