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.

Foul weather

Maggie has just had a well desererved break from school with the Easter holidays. Unfortunately for her the weather has been horrid with day after day of very wet rain which has stopped her doing anything very exciting.

As a bit of a last ditch attempt to have good time she booked us in for a weekend break at a hotel up the coast in Gandia but, as you can see from the picture taken from our 11th floor room, the weather gave no quarter. She'd guessed it might not and booked us in to a place that fed us three times a day and made a big deal out of it's Turkish bath, spa and biothermic shower but, between meals and after we'd had our pores opened we had no choice but to avoid the cold and wet in bar after bar after bar.
