Concert on Playazo Plaza – Torrent of Complaints –

This is one of the least unpleasant & non offensive and it is certainly the very, very last email I shall publish      Subject Closed!  Editor

I presume the writer of the complaint about the Playazo beach party was referring to San Juan which happens each year (and on most beaches) on the 23 June. I’m afraid that’s just something that occurs here, especially in summer months. Apart from the usual ferias and fiestas, there are additional beach parties too. One year the music was so loud from the Torre del Mar Beach Festival in July we had to move out of our home in Torrox which isn’t even in view of the area, but the bass was bouncing off the hillsides (this year it’s been extended so is 4 nights, until about 8am the next morning, 5-8th).  No town or village is free from noise of their ferias and fiestas which go on all night long, but they seem to attract a lot of visitors and bring in income to the area. The rules for music levels in bars and clubs does not seem to apply to the local traditional fiestas.

Putting it politely, I think if the writer goes to the Ayuntamiento and asks for a rates’ rebate due to the noise, I think they would have a good laugh about it…. this is the way Spain is!



Hacked Mobile

It appears my mobile (Movistar) has been hacked.  I received, as is normal, a text notification to say I had less than 2 euro on 23/6 at 12.38.

At 13.06, on that day,  I topped up with 10 euros bringing my balance to 11,62. During the night I received 2 notification texts simultaneously at 00.29 (24/6)one stating less than 3 euros and the other less than 2 euros, I then received a text notification that I had zero balance….I had only made 3 texts and 3 short local phone calls on the 23rd.

At 12.48 on 25/6 I topped up with only 5 euros as I thought something strange was going on…….at 13.18, exactly 30 minutes later I again received 2 notification texts simultaneously stating I had less than 3 euros and less than 2 euros.  I hadn’t used my phone.

If anyone has experienced this and can share how this can be rectified I would be grateful.  I have had my number for 13 years and as you can imagine the inconvenience it would cause to have to have it changed especially as I do not have a land-line.
