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.

Still open

Well the house doesn't look too bad and last night, for the first time in eight months, we slept in our own bed in our own bedroom. The cat is enjoying the freedom of the countryside too.

We saw a man about a new TV aerial and he's due on Wednesday to fit it, I wonder if he'll turn up.

We had a meal yesterday in the local restaurant in the village which, we are pleased to say, was not only still open but booming. And at 8€ for the three courses, wine and coffee the price was very reasonable. We'll have to go and check out the local bodega today and buy a few bottles.

Pinoso doesn't seem to have changed much though a couple of the businesses seem to have come and gone. There is a new Brit sweetie shop in the High Street. Odd sort of shop for Spain. We've been in a couple of bars but nothing exciting.

And the weather is pretty poor. Cloudy with sunny spells and a nasty cool breeze. It was much nicer in Salamanca.
