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.

Out with the vecinos

I went on a charabanc trip with the Culebrón Neighbourhood Association today.

We went to the Cuevas del Canelobre, a limestone cave, full of stalagmites and stalactites, at Busot and then on to Guadalest a small, fortified, hilltop village once completely isolated now completely chocca with tourists.

The thing that impressed me most was that as we got back on the coach after the trip into the cave, at around 12.30, everyone, and I mean everyone, on the coach started to complain about how hungry they were. Emergency rations appeared all over the bus. They'd missed their mid morning snack and lunch wasn't planned till 2.30pm. Hours away. And the first thing we did when we got to Guadalest? - we went to the restaurant and asked if we could have the food a bit earlier than planned.

Good day though.
