Chulito, male cat lost in Torrox Costa since 1st of March 

He is 11 months old and lived in Nerja in a 3rd floor apartment with a terrace only. 2 days after we moved to Torrox Costa, Urbanización Santa Rosa, Los Llanos into a garden apartment, he escaped through the kitchen window, and for the first time experienced street life, other animals, cars, lots of people etc. He might be frightened and may be hiding somewhere, in a garage or similar. Or he might have returned back to Nerja to his old home, at Mar de Nerja, which is on the right side of the Sunday Market/between Almijara and Capistrano.

He is light grey tigred European/Roman/Persian mix, castrated, microchipped, vaccinated and very playful and friendly with people. He is also very curious and adventerous and loves to eat!!!

Please help me find him, I am so desperate and sad.

What’s On – Music Festival  

Festival of Sacred & Antique Music “La Liebre de Marzo”

The 4th Festival of Sacred & Antique Music “La liebre de marzo” will take place on March 11 and March 18.  As in previous years, this festival will take place at the Cultural Center “Casa del Apero” in Frigiliana.

This time around the festival’s focus is on vocal music with two extraordinary presentations:

On March 11th, mezzosoprano Carmen Ariza will inaugurate the festival with “The Spirituality of Great Geniuses”, a program  based on baroque religious music and a few incursions into later periods. Mozart, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Fauré are among the composers she has selected.  Carmen Ariza will be accompanied by the flute of Inmaculada Gómez, and by the piano of Antonio Manzano.

What’s On – Lux Mundi – Torre del Mar  

Thursday 16th March – Coach excursion to Gibraltar.  Why not join Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar and visit Gibraltar, a chance to take a cable car to the top of the Rock, see the unique Barbary apes.  Visit the upper Rock nature reserve, where you will find the Historic tunnels dating from 1779-1783 and St. Michael´s cave.  Both of these have guided tours.  In the town can be seen the Gibraltar Museum, Government House and in the southern area are key historical sites. All information may be obtained from the tourist office, or an excellent alternative way of seeing the sights is by hiring a taxi, whose drivers are very knowledgeable and will explain the interesting, historical life of the Rock.  It is also an opportunity to purchase duty free Items and typical English items of food, etc. from the Morrisons super market. Ticket price 12 Euros available at the Centre.  Proceeds for fund raising.  Departure times Puente don Manuel (Bar Mis Tapitas) 6.45, Algarrobo (Lidl) 7.15, Caleta (Vets)7.20 and Torre Del Mar (Bus Station) 7.30. Depart Gibraltar15.30 approximately. PASSPORTS / I.D. REQUIRED.

Thursday 23rd March – Coach Excursion to Olvera and Setenil de las Bodegas.   Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar, invites you to join friends on a coach excursion where you will first visit the picturesque town of Olvera, situated north east of Ronda.  The original settlement is more than 2 thousand years old and was added to by the Phoenicians and Romans, followed by the Moors in the 9th century who held it until King Alfonso XI conquered it in 1327.  On arrival, at approximately 10.30, there will be free time for coffee and to climb to the castle which was constructed at the end of 12th century, mostly in the 13th, on a strategic rock giving the ability to communicate with other nearby castles through signals. Also dominating the area is the Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacioñ church constructed in 1822 and finished in 1843 and is one of the greatest churches of the province and in fact hides one of Andalucía’s best small museums behind its imposing bulk. The town was declared a centre of artistic and historic importance in 1983. You may also visit the Plaza de Andalusia which has a majestic stone fountain/waterfall and great rock garden. In the old part of town its origins are evident with narrow streets, strategic corners, old cottages etc, exposing the visitor to the old architecture of the Muslim town entwined with the modern.

You will leave Olvera at 13.00 for the short half hour drive to the unique village of Setenil de las Bodegas set in a backdrop of huge cliffs, above the Rio Trejo.  The blinding white houses seem to emerge from the rocks; some have rock roofs and even olive groves on their roofs. You will have free time for lunch and a walk around the village departing at approximately 16.15, for the return journey to Torre del Mar arriving at 18.00 approximately.  Lux Mundi suggest that you can research the relevant web sites and tourist offices for more information as to what can be visited and seen during your free time in both towns.  Ticket price 20 Euros available at the Centre.  Proceeds for fund raising.  Departure times Viñuela (Football Pitch) 07.50, Algarrobo (Lidl) 08.15, Caleta (Vets) 08.20, Torre del Mar (Bus Station) 08.30.

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

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”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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.
