What’s on– Personal Reccomendation of Movie- The Promise

I just saw and often shed tears through one of the best films I have seen in my adult life, a captivating, action packed love story (love triangle) during WWI showcasing the Armenian genocide at hands of Turks in 1915 , The Promise, showing at El Ingenio in Torre.

The story behind release of movie, the continuing battle for historical truth, is also worth researching before you see the movie. Not necessary. I did my research after.

Key role is played by Christian Bale, a courageous AP reporter, who exposes the genocide from in side Turkey up close and personal, and nearly pays for the truth with his life.

This $90 million production that grossed only $8.4 million at the box office, was almost 100’% financed by a USA Armenian multi-millionaire. It is a joint Spain-USA production. (A handful of  USA journalists, reputedly including Bale’s real life persona, along with 2,500 Americans who fought with the Republicans in Spain from 1936  – 39  are buried in this country  in unmarked or mass graves, save one.)

Turkey fought hard in the USA and worldwide to kill the release of this magnificent and thoroughly well acted and gripping war drama and love story. Bring tissues for tears. (I could hear others crying, sniffling during the movie….it’s that good!)

To the credit of Madrid politicians, there is a huge black on white banner hanging on the Madrid Town Hall that reads:  “REFUGEES WELCOME.”

Compassion is in short supply. Stock up with inspiration from this deeply moving swath of visual history reminding us that humans seem to have mastered inhumanity. The Promise speaks to all of us, each of us very personally.

Robert Stephenson




Recommendation HM Heating

Would like to highly recommend H.M. Heating for the solar pool cover that Malcolm advised and fitted for us very efficiently. What an improvement, far superior and effective than other covers we have used over the past 12 years! We are so pleased both with the cover and the care and attention to detail supplied by H M Heating.
Thank you again,
Alvin and Mair Head.

Services Available- Airport Pick-up & Drop off

I have seen a few people asking for this information and I have just been to the airport for a pick-up and drop-off, so this information is current.

Picking Up

There is a new parking lot next to the train station. This is called Arrivals First Class Parking Lot on the airport website.

Drive in like you are going to rental car return, but before making the turn, on the right is the train station, it is hard to get to across the white lines blocked out for the taxis, but go ahead. When I went there on two occasions in the past few weeks there were only 2 or 3 other cars parked in the lot, so I do not believe it has been advertised much. And, the sign is a bit misleading, in Spanish even harder… The sign I saw said something referencing only authorized cars, but go ahead and pull in and get a ticket at the gate. There is an exit at the other end on the left. The opening in the fence to the walkway is on the right and go around to the crosswalk under the bridge, but I cut across the driveway and walked out past the exit gate as I did not see the opening in the fence on the right. Take your ticket with you, and on return go the machines first and pay your fees, return to your car and exit. I was there about 45 minutes and paid 3,45 euros. Driving out is a bit confusing but follow the signs, exiting the driveway of the car park go right (you cannot turn left), go through the roundabout like you are going straight, there is a small sign to go right over a small bridge then you are on your way to exiting the airport.


First minute: €1.

Minute 2 to 30: €0.052952 per minute.

Minute 31 to 60: €0.07733 per minute.

From minute 61: €0.086464 per minute.

Maximum per day: €36.


Telephone: 952 048 471
