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.

In training

The national pastime for old men in Spain is to sit in the shade and natter. You can just make out a small lad sitting between two old chaps in this snap. Best to start the training young I suppose.

Apologies for the snap. I once read in a photography magazine that there are two ways to take a candid photo. You either sneak the picture somehow or you look fierce, as though you and the camera toughed it out in the last few days of Dien Bien Phu. I've never been to Vietnam hence the dodgy picture.
