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.

Trying and failing

When we first came to Spain I thought I'd join a political party, then a couple of years later when my Spanish was perfect I'd get elected as a councillor.

Something went wrong somewhere but I did set out to my first meeting of the PSOE tonight. As I approached the door I was rehearsing my introduction, always interested in politics, member of the Labour Party in the UK, Union official, leaflet experience blah, blah. When I got there the chairperson welcomed me, "We're just off to eat, the meeting's over really, just the committee tonight, we haven't got this seasons meetings planned yet, come back in a couple of weeks time".

I retired.
