I guess this isn't one of my usual rants about that eyesore known as Condos Aluxes. It's more of a WTF! were they thinking.
The "special" beach area for guests in now complete and open and oh-so-very-posh. Gimme a break. At any rate, this is the sign that greets visitors and passersby.
I thought it said "Cafe del Moar". Upon closer inspection, they just got carried away with their swirly dwirlys and the extra loopy thing meant to make the M look elegant and sophisticated just makes it look like an extra letter. Of course, it really says "Cafe del Mar". Geez.
Then they have the naked lady statue kind of next to the sign. This thing looks really familiar to me. Can't place where I've seen it before. Some art deco museum or something? Does anybody recognize it?
It's not a bad statue, really. But c'mon. Did they not stop and think for a moment what a joke this was going to be for tasteless tourists?
I kid you not. I had to wait patiently for my turn to take a picture of it. I almost walked away. I almost took a picture of people taking pictures of it but did not want to support what they were doing to this poor thing. Suffice it to say that somewhere out there, among their other vacation pictures, are plenty of pictures taken by wives and girlfriends of their husbands/partners or whatevers doing disgusting things to this statue with their hands, fingers and yes, tongues.
