First let me say 'muchas gracias España y Andalucia' for having
us. It was most enjoyable, so much so that we are investigating the possiblities
of living there at some time in the future. Nervertheless, here are a
- Watch out for the road edges in the countryside. There are
no kerbs and the edges of the road are deep gullies. 110% concentration
needed, by me anyway, I of course have difficulty walking and chewing
gum at the same time!
- Learn Spanish. We Brits really are the worst for speaking other
languages.Now I expect I'll be inundated with angry e-mails
from people who are fluent in 27 tongues!
- The beer! Now the quality is second to none and I really mean
that. But what is it with the measures? I did not go into any bar where
a 'cervaza grande' was the same size as in the previous bar! In fact
we couldn't order two beers and get them come up with the same measure.
I wouldn't mind, but they always put the biggest one down in front of
Arja! Well, I mean. The rest of the EU seem to have regulations concerning
litres 'n' stuff. Am I going on about this? O.K.
