Marbella Old Town Streets (After)

Some post-surgery wandering through Marbella old town, mostly on early Friday morning (pre-breakfast even) cos my panda eyes / subcutaneous corpse paint / ? / ? was scaring locals and tourists alike.

Or, Alcazaba de la Medina Medieval de Marbella, from the very Arab Muslim 10th century.

FACIALTEAM June 13th After

Many tubes. The bloody one is draining my skull, there’s also a catheter I filled with two litres thanks to all the water and smoothies I drunk. Missing is the drug line into my hand, and out of shot is the water-cooled face mask, like a really crappy superhero.

Marbella Old Town Streets (Before)

Wandering either to my taxi pickup for pre-op consultation, mid-afternoon on July 12th, or same place, previous day, post ridiculously early flight from Berlin and probably looking for food.

La Villa(s) Marbella

Where I stayed for eleven nights (minus one in hospital) on a very expensive not-holiday.

Museo del Grabado Español Contemporáneo: Katsukawa Shunchō — Imayō irokumi no ito

There was a big Hokusai show in Berlin at (I think) Martin Gropius Bau a couple of years ago, I went to see with Dasniya. No Shunga. No pervy octopus tentacle porn. Not even a mention. But in Marbella, in the small but very nice MGEC Museo del Grabado Español Contemporáneo, in the very unexpected exhibition, Estampa japonesa — Imágenes del mundo flotante, amidst three rooms of Japanese Edo and Meiji era prints, a whole wall of Shunga. And this one, from Katsukawa Shunchō’s: series, Imayō irokumi no ito. One of my absolute favourites, just hanging on the wall in a small museum in Marbella.
