Since the beginning of November, Málaga has been frantically putting up all sorts of decorations and lights galore. It’s been a big tease because they’ve never actually turned them on. They had the light ceremony on Friday. My friends and I went early because we knew it was going to be packed. They had a DJ and people playing all sorts of instruments. Before the DJ they had some opening acts. We had no idea what time they were turning on the lights because everyone kept telling us a different time. So we waited and we waited and we waited some more. The DJ kept us entertained. We joined in when the malagueños were chanting all sorts of sayings. We did the wave. I felt like I was waiting for Christmas to start at that exact moment. Then, finally the DJ started counting down and all of us a sudden the whole city was lit up a sea of lights. It was gorgeous. You couldn’t help but to stare. It was really quite magical. I am so lucky I get to look at this until I leave! My friend Cindy and I are going to do some exploring in the coming weeks to see all the other lights. Can’t wait.
