Help ! Trip to Morocco – Missing Contact Details

I had posted an ad for women to join me on a buying trip to Morocco. Much to my delight I got an unexpected email from a  woman living in La Herradura, which is where my new home is.

Unfortunately I have lost that email. I just booked my trip back to Spain and wanted to connect about meeting for tea/coffee.

Hopefully you are reading this and will reach out to  me again.

Amendment to – Interpreters in Spanish Hospitals

Spanish hospitals do not charge for the services of an interpreter – it is free.  The interpreters  themselves are volunteers (although it is possible to book their services on an individual basis, if you like to have the same interpreter for your appointments for example, for which the Junta set a flat fee).  I used to  volunteer at my local Centro de Salud until my own health issues got in the way

If you just turn up for a medical appointment and expect an interpreter to be available you may be disappointed – with so many (non Spanish speaking) foreigners living here these days there is a high demand.  You could arrange in advance for an interpreter to be available.  Alternatively take a Spanish speaking friend/family member with you – or better yet make the effort to learn the language so you can manage for yourself without moaning about others.

Recommendation – English Language Movies

Dear Digamist,

Just a quick thanks to Doug who places the English spoken Movie Shedule on DigameXtra.

After a few year of living here and still struggling with the Spanish language, I went to my first English movie experience in Velez-Malaga (Miss Peregrines home for Particular Children, great for the whole family). It was the Sunday Matinee (12pm)  followed by a lovely lunch…

But to our surprise we and one other couple were the only customers (entrance only 5 Euros). What a pity….. If we want the Spanish movies theaters to keep featuring English spoken movies I hope that more people will find there way there to enjoy a good movie matinee.

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