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.

The water pressure in our house was down a bit. The hot water was taking even longer than usual to get to the taps in the kitchen so when the next door neighbours said they were going to get a plumber in we suggested a job share.

They phoned for him yesterday, to come today. He turned up on time. He was called Lucretio. He tinkered around cleaning things out for a couple of hours (nothing too complicated), serviced the water heater and then went on his merry way. He charged 50€ for about 2, maybe 2½hrs, work and the situation seems to be improved.

I recall it wasn't easy getting a plumber in the UK and that they were very expensive.
