Life in Culebrón is a disconnected series of pieces about the banal and ordinary of everyday life in an inland Alicante village seen from my very British perspective.

Fiesta, party!

Last night we went to the village meal in the nearby village of Ubeda. About 200 of us sat in the village square, at long tables, and tucked into a meal followed by a bit of dancing.

Today, at 2pm we popped back to eat some of the free paella made from rice, rabbit and snails. One picture shows the paella being cooked on one of the village streets, the other shows some of our pals delighting in the healthy water melon provided as pudding.

We have the village meal in our own village tonight. More chicken I fear!

How come we never see any pictures of you on this site, apart from the posed one at the top. I suspect you are looking 20 years older than you looked on leaving England. Either that or you are bald now.
