 Question re Ferias…..Can anyone enlighten us as to the origins of the curious custom at
Ferias, of the letting off
of an odd type of firework, nothing to look at, just a loud explosion,
not unlike a trench mortar being fired.  What are they for, apart from
scaring the hell out of the local canine population?
Firework displays I understand and admire, but these senseless
explosions…..!  I would be interested to know their origin, and
indeed their purpose.  Any replies please to Digame, so that we may
all learn something.




Taking a Cat by Air to UK – Advice Please

CAT02A friend of mine has to take her cat home to UK, she will

travel on the 16th of September from Malaga to Gatwick and wants to bring her cat with her.

We tried everything but British Airways does not say anything and she does not know how to book the kennel for the cat.

Could you help me you, could you phone her (her name is Ada and her phone number is 95 252 8427) or could you send me an email on

neppobrouwers @ yahoo.ca?



Services Needed –  

My husband and I are shipping 7 large boxes from the U.S. to Malaga – with the final destination being La Herradura. (35 cubic feet total)

I’m looking for someone who has a van to drive me to the port and bring the 7 boxes back to La Herradura.  Experience with international shipping would be a great bonus.

This is my first time sending things from home. I know when I arrive at the airport, no one goes through my suitcase. I don’t know if the port is as lax as the airport.

I will be bringing household goods to Spain.

Basically used items that I’m not able to get in Spain. If anyone knows of an agent who can help with the process, please send along their information.

I’m just not sure having a “Professional” is necessary. As it’s just used household goods, it feels a bit like over kill but I don’t want to run into any problems and my Spanish isn’t great.

Any suggestions or advice would be very much appreciated.

The boxes won’t arrive until the first week in December.

I know it’s a bit early to be making plans but I want to get everything in order in advance to make for a stress free pick up. I’ve heard horror stories about paper work in Spain and I certainly don’t want to get down there and leave without being able to take my boxes.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
