Today I was in Malaga to meet an old university friend and as I walked up Calle Larios, either side of the pedestrianised, marble-paved street were 40 beautifully and creatively painted goats!
This is the mew urban street art initiative, called ‘Oh My Goat!’.
It really reminded me of CowParade, which came to Chicago when I was working there. But here in Malaga, instead of cows were goats – which is pretty appropriate since the Malaga goat is renowned for its milk, cheese and meat.
The street art is a project sponsored by Malaga newspaper the SUR, an initiative to promote the multimillion euro goat industry in Andalucía!

I just love these art initiatives. Baltimore, Maryland had one a few years back featuring the crab since that is what they are known for; it was such fun to spot them around the city. Having lived in Malaga, I can picture Calle Larios beautifully adorned with the cabras.
Bringing back happy memories I hope. Malaga is changing each year for the better, despite the tricky economy and it’s city that is really comig into it’s own now. Saludos desde Malaga!x
