ANDALUSIAN TALES: THE STORY TELLERS OF MARBELLA

Marbella Writers' Workshop

The day after OUR visit to Ronda the literary theme continued.

I sat in on a meeting of the Marbella Writers Workshop and enjoyed their stories, which each person, in turn, shared with the rest of this energetic group of writers. 

A little Wiki-stalking reveals that my dear friend Tony, who chairs the Workshop each week, is not the only person of note to live round here. Sean Connery had a place in Marbella and was he was regularly seen playing. Actor George Clooney is a sometimes resident. Antonio Banderas, was born in the nearby city of M├ílaga.  Arms dealer Monzer al-Kassar (aka the Prince of Marbella) was a long-time resident until his imprisonment.

 As we walked along the beachfront after the workshop it was warm and sunny and peaceful. During the summer months the population increases by 30% with the arrival of tourists and non-nationals who have their second homes in the area.
