Dessert: Bengali Saffron Cheese Dessert. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very tasty and healthy. And the ambiance is magic and rustic and real. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half B & B. White it seats 37, reservations are recommended.

Recommendations

Advice wanted please – Axartel WiMAX Internet
Hi everyone. Has anyone got any experience of using Axartel’s WiMAX internet service and could give me some feedback? I live in the campo near Torrox Pueblo and cannot get a telephone line or fibre so I need an alternative. I currently use 4G but it has a low data cap so I want to swap.
People seem to think Axartel are a good company, but I’m worried about the quality of internet. Is the speed anything like advertised (I can only get the lowest speed of 6mbs) and does it drop out if the weather is bad or there are lots of people online? I would be grateful for any advice or information. The router they provide is a Nucom NJ3R.
Thanks also to Naythan for the ongoing Digamextra service.
Many thanks, Nick

Recommendations

Web Search Tip by Naythan: Want to get away from Google search but don’t like Duckduckgo? Sick of inaccurate search results and results that are 10yrs old?
Here are two excellent AD FREE alternatives with more accurate results, no tracking and no “sponsored” search results:
SearX– Searx is a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines. No user data saved, very accurate results. Very clean, uncluttered site. My current fav! https://searx.me/
Qwant- EU based, no cookies, no history saved. Has a “social media” search function for searching Facebook pages and posts. More modern look than SearX, with news feeds and social media links. https://www.qwant.com/

 

Tempo Happy tariff: Further to the post about Endesa’s Happy Tempo tariff, it is possible to register on the website https://www.endesaclientes.com/homes/home.html which is in English and change your tariff directly through that. I was having difficulties and was given a free phone number to contact of 800 760 909. When I have rung them in the past there has usually been an English speaking assistant to help.

Recommendations

Endesa Discounts. Tempo Happy Rate
I have heard frustrated people ask about getting the discount at Endesa.
I just had a wonderful experience with Endesa and it was really easy.
I hired a young lady from the village who is Spanish. She also speaks and teaches English! Contact me via email and I will give you her contact information. She arranged everything for us and made an appointment in Velez Malaga. We went there at 9:00 AM when they opened and had to wait about 1.5 hours as we were the 13th person. You get a number at the door so come early.
We were given 3 option. Either 2 hours free each day, 1 day a week or 50 hours a month. We chose the 2 hours a day and we could even choose our time so we chose 8AM to 10AM every day. So we can do wash, run the dish washer, turn on the electric heaters for water or room cooling or heating, run the clothes dryer, etc in those 2 hours each day. Also they have an app for your phone where you can change those times to anything that you want and whenever you want. I have not tried that yet but I am told that it will work.
Here is a link to the Endesa Website. https://www.endesaclientes.com/tempo-happy-en.html
And the link to the app info  https://www.endesaclientes.com/small-business/faqs/our-apps.html#1383200482716 Good luck and once I figure out the app I will report back.
The young lady in the village charges 10 Euro an hour to do this for you. It took me a total of 4 hours from the time I picked her up and returned her to the Sayalonga parking lot. I hope this helps.

Water Heater Recommendations: I’m hoping someone can recommend a good person to install a water heater in La Herradura. The one that came with the house is just too small – if we fill the bathtub, we run out of water.
I am wondering if anyone has experience with On Demand water heaters or if that’s not suitable here in Spain.
Thanks in advance for your advice.

Sewing Machine Repair: I have a Bernina sewing machine which, for anyone who sews, knows it is the Rolls Royce of machines! Mine in Nerja is a ‘Record’ and about 40 yrs old.

Long Lines For Health Care May be Far Longer Than Previously Admitted:
The new regional government run by the Partido Popular-Ciudadanos centre-right coalition has accused the previous Socialist-run Andalusian authority of hiding the true extent of health service waiting lists in official figures.
Regional Health minister, Jesús Aguirre, said on Tuesday that at the end of last year there were 843,538 people waiting for an operation or a specialist appointment with the SAS (Andalusian health service), 548,000 more than the figure offered by the previous government!
Of those half a million “hidden” patients, nearly 100,000 are in the province of Malaga. The Health Department’s delegate for this area, Patricia Navarro, said on Wednesday that in June last year, the Socialist government reported just under 60,000 people on waiting lists in the province, whereas the real figure offered by the new government is more than 156,000.

It’s just a one hour drive from Malága.
You are welcome to participate in workshops to improve your own artistic skills. And there is the opportunity to see the artists at work. Feel free to meet them personally or admire their exhibited works of art: paintings, drawings, textile art, photographic art, video-projections, ceramics, bronze, wood, stone and steel sculptures. All will be displayed at different venues in the village.
This year we’re happy to announce new activities! On Saturday morning there is a meditation ceremony. On Sunday afternoon you are invited to a storytelling event. And the Art Walk welcomes 4 Dutch students of the Arnhem Theatre School! The ‘Art-Walkers’ will ‘move’ in the streets of Cómpeta, submerging the village in creative vibes. Let yourself be carried away by positive energy and be open to new encounters! On top of that everyday you can enjoy exceptional live music!
