Café Del Sol

It's a little contradiction, Café del Sol (Sun's Cafe), while there are dark clouds in the background.
In the heart of the city, the nightlife centre of Murcia, is the Café del Sol, where you can enjoy tapas and a drink. Installed on the terrace of the Plaza de Europa (Europe Square). Perhaps one of the ugliest squares in Murcia (too much cement and concrete). But it is in the centre of the city, very close to the university of Murcia (campus of Murcia), restaurants and cinemas (well, only a movie theater, but the best).

Inside Teatre

Disco Teatre, is a place to spend the weekend nights (and the week nights). What I like is the design. It's like a theater. The seating area is the dance area and the area of boxes, is that, box seats, VIP area with exclusive entrance.
During the week, seating area turns into a cabaret, with tables to dine, have drinks and watch shows: stand-up comedy, variety, music hall, flamenco, ... Some Sundays are special events like the matinee, Burleske.
The bad thing is the average age nights on Fridays and Saturdays (between 21 and 24 years), and also the quality of some drinks, because well-known brands, they put re-filled bottles.

Abenarabi Or Ibn Arabí

This is the avenue Abenarabi. It's just an excuse to talk about Abenarabi or Ibn Arabi:
"The streets of Murcia viewed born to one of the most important Muslim mystics, Abenarabi, the great thinker and poet of Al-Andalus.
The twelfth and thirteenth centuries were shaken politically, with the reconquista and the crusades. Is the time of Al-Andalus and the empire of the Almohades, constituting one of its greatest regarding our character, a thinker who in works such as The Names of God laid the foundations for a new worldview rooted in the individual approach to divinity through study and prayer, a mystical, or search for union with God, which centuries later would drink San Juan de la Cruz and Santa Teresa de Jesus. "(Source: Región de Murcia Digital)
More on this Sufi mystic, philosopher, poet, traveler and Andalusian Muslim wise man in wikipedia.
The person who designed the streetlights of that street introduced those half moons in honor of this distinguished Murcian.

Motocross In Alhama

Yesterday I was fortunate to attend to the Circuit of Las Salinas, in Alhama of Murcia (organized by the Moto Club Alhama). There it celebrated the XXXIV edition of the motocross regional championship. In this circuit, have held the World Championship races, the European Championship and the Championship of Spain.
The importance of this day was not who won, but how much money is collected, and all that money was destined for the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC)

Oktoberfest In Murcia. Fiesta De La Cerveza En Murcia.

Well, yes. The great beer festival in Germany, the Oktoberfest, is also in Murcia. Here came in 2010, and this is its second year.
As I read, the origin of the beer festival in Germany is as follows: In 1810, after the wedding celebrations of the future king of Bavaria, Munich residents remember this event is proposed every year. Thus was born the German Oktoberfest.
Here you can see more photos. To enjoy a good beer (and large). Indeed, in the poster of the picture you can see some of their prices: pint jar: 4 euros. One-liter jar: 6 euros.

The Old Beetle Or Bug

The old beetle. This car has, no doubt, a charm that has not gotten the new version.
As I read, its production began in 1938 until 2003. It was designed by Porsche commissioned by Hitler. If you want to know more about this car, there is a page on wikipedia that is quite complete.
I found this car parked in a street of Murcia.
