Costa Press Club
A meeting of contrasts
The Costa Press Club held its meeting this month in Malaga city, with a visit to one of its top tourist attractions, the English Cemetery, followed by a meal at one of its newest restaurants, the Hard Rock Café.
At the cemetery members were given a guided tour and learned all about plans to attract yet more international visitors in the future, as well as the current options available for the interment of ashes, either in the vertical garden or in traditional graves in the burial ground.
From the beautiful and historic peace of the cemetery the group moved on to Muelle Uno for a high energy rock'n'roll themed dinner in very different surroundings!
