it is a city officially with 42,000 inhabitants, plus 5,000 unregistered retirees from other cities that are not registered here and an unknown number of immigrants, the municipality has over 66,000. But the urban area (excluding rural area) there's somewhat less than 100,000 (winter) and over 200,000 inhabitants in the summer. Remember it is an European city, not Asian or American.

today's pics (took it about an hour ago), the day was very hot since early morning but in late afternoon, fog arrived from the sea, it brought very fresh air and sea aroma, very nice, unfortunately smell can't be caught on camera, but caught some fog on camera. It was pleasant, so no-one left the beaches. At first I though it was some big fire from an apartment, but saw no firefighters and all people in the streets looked so relaxed...
