Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Language problems

When I rang Telefonica (see below) I didn't really have much difficulty with communication. As always I was a bit faltering but I got the information I needed easily enough. Yesterday though I had to phone HSBC in the UK to activate a credit card I had to resort to asking direct questions of the operator to check that the card had been activated because I couldn't understand what the man was saying!
