From “the torture never stops” file: Announced today on TRE Radio. New laws have been enacted requiring websites in Spain, that wish to advertize vacation rentals, to register and submit copy to some agency. Begins this September.
I will not be doing this. So beginning July 1st no more holiday rentals will be permitted, only long term (11 month minimum) property rental listings will be accepted. Sorry.

Info Wanted, MRI scan: Dear Digame readers, can anyone advise me if it is possible to get a MRI scan done in the Torre Del Mar / Velez Malaga area. I do not live in Spain permanently and I am willing to pay for it. Can you also tell me how much it would cost and how long for the appointment? The scan would be for my lower back. If anyone out there has any info it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
Please reply to Angela, Torre del Mar. Email: alcasbarra@hotmail.co.uk

Info Wanted, Hearing aids: I have been having hearing tests and scans etc for the past year at the hospital in Velez, and they seem to think I have had some sort of mini stroke that has affected my right ear only. They have now told me there is nothing medically they can do and I must go and try different hearing aids and buy one I am happy with. I wondered if anyone in Digameland has experience of buying a hearing aid and could recommend somewhere to try. Thanks, Harry.
