Recommendations Needed- for Pensioner
Rapidly approaching OAPship!
Apart from sympathy for the shock horror of it all, I’d appreciate
- the name of any doctor at Torrox ambulatorio with a better
grasp of English than my feeble Spanish, and
- any advice on, and/or websites covering, other worthwhile pensionista benefits.
Many thanks in anticipation. pete in spain @gmailcom
