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.

I don't suppose you know

That Spain won the Basketball World Cup on Sunday by beating Greece (who triumphed over the USA in the semi finals).

The score was 70-47 and that's without their star player, Gasol, who was injured in the semis against Argentina.

The reason I suspect that you might not know about the basketball is that the team came back from Japan (where the competition was held) via Heathrow. The Spanish press were amazed that they had completely free access to the team as the British press were nowhere to be seen. Apparently none of the British teams qualified so there was no local interest.

The picture is from the Argentina game.
