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.

Well, at least we didn't lose

It was "el Gordo" today, the National State Christmas lottery. There were 180 series of 85,000 tickets on sale. Each ticket costs 200€ but they are sold in tenths of a ticket at 20€ per pop. The biggest prize is only 3 million euros (so you'd only win a tenth of that if you bought, as is usual, one of the 20 euro vouchers) but there are thousands and thousands of smaller prizes.

Along with the 80% of the Spanish population I bought a lottery ticket nd this year, for the first time the lottery "touched" us and we got our stake money back!
