Life in Culebrón is personal view of Spain and Spanish life as seen by a Briton living in a small village in Alicante province.
The other tabs link to similar blogs when I have lived in other places. The TIM magazine is an English language magazine I write articles for.

They come over here stealing our jobs and sponging off the state

When we lived in Santa Pola we met a chap called Masis, an Armenian, who had come to Spain illegally. He had paid someone for a dodgy ticket to Paris as a route into Spain and he was working long hours for pathetic pay with no protections. Eventually, because of a political amnesty on illegal immigrants Masis was able to get his paperwork sorted out.

Masis rang this morning to say that I had missed the grand opening of his new restaurant on the seafront at Santa Pola when I was over visiting Maggie last weekend.

I hope he makes a fortune.
