The Twelfth Stage of the Cycle Race “La Vuelta” ….

(Thanks to John Dunford)

They will be passing from Motril to Antequera on Thursday 31st August, passing along the coast of The Axarquia. The Local Police in Nerja are reporting that on that day the N-340 coast road will be closed in the municipality from 13.00 until approximately 15.00. The times in other municipalities may vary depending on where you are on the route. Your local Town Hall should be able to give you the details.

The full details of the stage route can be found on this link (available in Spanish, English and French)



Thank you !

Although I have replied to everyone individually, I just wanted to say thanks for the huge response to my enquiry on Saturday for recommendations and suggestions.  A big ‘bouquet’ also to Jane for producing Digamextra every day!  Barbara W


Sleepless in Axarquia ??

Does someone know what the Spanish law says about the night rest?

I don’t know but I guess and hope that, also here, the sleep and night rest is protected by the law. I learned that the authorization for fiesta, feria and so on is given by the Town Hall. Are they allowed to issue authorizations for “parties” that last till 5 o’clock in the morning? OR!! At what time can I call the Guardia Civil, so that these authorities stop the circus?

Thank you for publishing my question officially; I guess everybody should know their rights.

Saludos cordiales

Foreign Plated Cars in Spain

There are still lots of questions being raised about importing foreign cars to Spain.

Would the person by the name of keith watsapnin @gmail.com please be so kind as to provide the link for where we can get the information or name of the site where he got it.

There has to be some kind of rule to prevent people holidaying in Spain for short spells from getting their car impounded and fined huge sums of money.

For Sale- Vintage English Bone China ‘Tea for 2’ Set  

Very pretty vintage Queen Anne ‘Tea for 2’ set by the very collectable Ridgway factory of Stoke on Trent. Consists of 2 x cups, 2 x saucers, 2 x side plates, milk jug + sugar bowl all in excellent condition; this works out at just 1.25 Euros per piece. I also have the matching 10 inch sandwich plate which has a chip under the rim but this is not visible from above and in no way spoils its appearance (see photo 4) – I will include this free with the other items.  Brenda Lee Tel. 609777430 or email casaianda at yahoo dot co dot uk
