I picked up this poster off Facebook.
Earlier this week I was in the tourist/town hall office renewing our empadronamiento. This getting your name on the census of people with property or who live locally. Apparently, you are supposed to renew this every 5 years. You should also renew it in between times iof you change your passport.
While there I spotted the machine in the photo above. It allows you to buy tickets for events organised by the council. It should be good for the concerts at the castle in the summer. Plus things taking place at the theatre in El Ejido.
Earlier today I received the following message from the producer of A Place In The Sun:
"We are looking for an expat who has a motorbike OR an expat who has a boat to come on TV and offer advice tips etc. Filming takes no more than an hour and will be somewhere in the proximity of Adra or thereabouts for A Place in the Sun,"
The filming would take place sometime next week I believe.
If you are interested please get in touch.
Someone has been in touch asking whether there are any English speakers who are members of boating or motorcycling groups in the Adra area.
If you know of anyone whose details I might be able to pass on please can you let me know.
It is not often that I write about restaurants in Almerimar. However our lunch yesterday was excellent. We went to Defonitina & Uva.
We had shared starters of wok vegetables with chicken & a big plate of patatas bravas. Followed by two gourmet burgers (pronounce the t in gourmet when you ask for it). Plus a very nice bottle of red wine. Not cheap but very good.
We also went for a walk along the prom yesterday and it was pretty windy. However it is much, much, much worse today. Blowing a gale out there at the moment.
The article here on the town hall website explains that it is time for mossie spraying activities to start again.
Read More for a Google translation of the article.
Spotted the article here on the Eye on Spain site. Will have to look out for some of these.
A lot of them can be bought in supermarkets here and in El Ejido.
