Life in Culebrón is personal view of Spain and Spanish life as seen by a Briton living in a small village in Alicante province.
The other tabs link to similar blogs when I have lived in other places. The TIM magazine is an English language magazine I write articles for.

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.
