“One day it occurred to me to order 40-50 donkeys to take the guests up to a little pine wood above the Marbella Club,” recalls Conde Rudi. We prepared some excellent Sangria (slightly enriched with some Cointreau) and small pieces of typical Andalusian Tortilla to serve to the guests. The donkeys with their guides were lined up in front of the Club along the main road, where in those years hardly any traffic existed, what made the crossing of the road towards the hill-trail safe. It was not a long ride, but long enough to create a happy togetherness and proud feeling of one’s “surprisingly good riding talents”. By the time we reached the improvised party place a jolly lock-fire had been lit and the shoe shine boys from town, all guitar experts, with their gipsy sisters were dancing. They welcomed us to this unusual get-together-party.
