What’s On

Last of Andalusian ferias signal the end of summer: The remaining ferias on the Costa del Sol are from 8 to 12 October in Nerja, from 5 to 9 October in Ojén, and from 16 to 21 October in San Pedro de Alcántara.

The Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the week at El Parquesol in El Morche at 11am. The aim is for members to explore both the local History as well as history on a much wider scale. In that way we can better understand the existing social, political, religious and economic conditions of the Spanish People.
Since the group was first set up we have had talks on Pre-history, the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, The History of the Jews and a talk on the Roman Charioteer called Gais Appuleius Diocles as well as the History of the Andalusian horse, the Middle East pre-Islam and Muhammad. Our next meeting will be on the 2nd October, 2018. The first talk will be on “How Christopher Columbus Invented the British Navy” by Peter Afrendoulis and Keith (Rockall) will continue his talk on the Romans.
We have also enjoyed trips out and try to get out at least once a month to a local area for a visit to an historical site or museum. Our next trip out will be on the 6th November when we are visiting the Medina Azahara just outside of Cordoba.

Recommendation Madras Curry House: This restaurant is well worth a visit at Urbanisation Lentiscares, Local 4 on the main road through Torrox Costa near the petrol station. Great varied menu with new starters Momo and Choila. Spices to your individual taste and Deepak is the attentive waiter. Great food and great service, take away too. Give it a try.

Amazon Echo: Thank you to all who have sent valuable information. We can now purchase, confident that it will work in our Torrox home. And thank you again to Digame. A mine of information! Anthea. Torrox Pueblo antheawaters1@gmail.com

Recycling Cooking Oil: A few weeks ago I asked if anyone knew of where I could recycle used cooking oil and I received no replies so I assume no-one knew. Well a few days ago I discovered a recycling point in Velez-Malaga! It’s at the corner of the street just before you reach the car park behind the Town Hall, as shown on the map.
