Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Making out like bandits

A couple of friends who live in the UK have a place down on the coast. They were here for a few days and we went to meet them in Guardamar. We had a very pleasant evening at some Chinese place where they cooked the food you chose. Allan and Brenda also brought us a food parcel from the UK - marmite, stilton, tea, a pork pie, shortbread and a tea loaf. What a haul, what a kind thought.

It's amazing how kind people are. When a couple of other friends, Alan and Hilary, came they brought Ardbeg whisky, shortbread and a vase. Having a house in Spain is a bit like having a wedding. You get gifts just for doing it.
