Flew into Malaga today. Ryanair. No problem. Had car booked with full/full fuel but of course this was not the case when we got to the desk. Found the Hotel Puerta del Sol in Mijas easily.

The fun part came when we tried to pay - she wanted exact change - which we did not have. So, she quickly sent her employee out to get change from the bus (apparently they do it all the time here ... weird). When that didn't work we tried to use our VISA - well the $12.60 Euro ...
