Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Casa Magel B&B, September – November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars. So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?
Please contact casamagel@yahoo.com website http://www.casamagel.com

Afternoon Quiz: There will be another afternoon quiz on Thursday this week at El Pozuelo, Laguna Beach, Torrox Costa. To find El Pozuelo go through the big arches, turn left, along the side of the office and turn left again. There is usually a blackboard on the corner. Good food if you want to eat first, the quiz starts at 3pm. All welcome! This is a fun quiz, not mastermind and I will be the quiz master.

New Info For Salud 101 plan: Can anyone out there tell me the current situation with what was Clinica Rincon? We were members of their Salud 101, which gives members reduced costs in return for a fee, but we have heard nothing since the change of name and ownership. Any new information to add to the info provided in posts from last month would be much appreciated, probably by others as well as ourselves.
