We've settled into our digs at the Club Alanda Marbella. It's awful. The bedrooms are too big, the huge windows let in too much light, and the amenities are too luxurious for a minimalist traveler like me. I need squalor to be happy.
What's up with these views of the Mediterranean from every room? Is that Gibraltar I see off in the distance? I came here to see Spain, not some territory of Great Britain! Geez, what am I supposed to do here? Maybe I'll take a nap to get my mind off of these horrible circumstances.
