Paseo del Malecón

Next to the school yesterday, is on the Malecon promenade.
El Malecón is a wall built against the water of the River Segura. It originates from the XV century and, despite being the object of various repairs, by the XVIII century it had deteriorated considerably because of the rain, the wind, horses and the continuous traffic of the city. For these reasons, it was rebuilt in 1736.
Nowadays, it is an exceptional esplanade three metres above the ground. It stretches more than 15,000 metres into the "Huerta" or agricultural countryside like a stone tongue around the Western Side of the city, running between the Botanical gardens and those of the old Convent of San Francisco. It is made up of an area for leisure and the esplanade, from which you can enjoy magnificent views. If you want to rest there are numerous stone benches along the walkway.

Arachnid attack

What was the photographer taking pictures of yesterday it was this spider. At this distance scares, but there is nothing to fear.
This spider uses as a system of capturing prey hiding in a hole, and when an insect passes near this hole, is launched with the victim on his front legs. Scares.

Twin Towers

As in many other cities in Murcia are being built office towers. This is the image of one of those that will be called the "Blue Twin Towers". Although from this angle is only one of the 2 towers.These towers are in the area Atalayas.
The photo is taken from the garden of the Three Cups (garden Isaac Peral). By luck or bad luck, they are now starting to build these office towers. The downside of this is that for the first time it has been left to build above the height limit was to the Tower of the Cathedral.

Well, we do not get him blow the candle (which we had to do the parents) and we all sang the "happy birthday". Let's see if next year he blows.
