It’s Fiesta Friday Curry Night at Meson Mudejar (Calle Alamos 6, Archez):
It’s Curry Night again this Friday (and every Friday) at the area’s first plant-based (vegan) restaurant, Meson Mudejar, a couple of kilometres below Canillas de Albaida in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez. David and Kinga prepare international, handmade international varieties of delicious plant-based dishes. Meson Mudejar also features theme nights like Friday’s Curry Nights when local musicians offer entertainment and there’s a special curry menu at 15€ for a three-course meal, opening at 19:00. The menu includes: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course: three curries to chose from—mushroom and peas in spicy coconut sauce, black gram lentils in tomato sauce or chickpea curry (takes a day and a half to prepare). Dessert: fudgy coconut balls. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very tasty and healthy. And the ambience is magic and rustic and real. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half B & B. White it seats 37, reservations are recommended. Last Friday was a full house. Thanks DigameXtra readers and thanks to DigameXtra as our Curry Nights’ popularity soars. Contact David or Kinga at 682 489 949 or Whatsapp FB-Link

Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History Group enjoyed their first day trip out to the Medina Azahara. We had a very modern 55 seater coach with an excellent driver. The scenery along the way was spectacular. We arrived at the Medina c10.30am and saw the excellent video as well as the museum both complimented by good English translations. We then took the shuttle bus to the ruins. We were also very lucky with the weather, it was a bright and sunny day. Bearing in mind it had been raining the day before and rain was forecast for the day after! We then went into the city of Cordoba for a well earned lunch.
The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol in El Morche at 11am.
The aim of the group 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.
Our next meeting will be on the 4th December. Keith (Rockall) will complete his series of talks on the Romans and I will give a brief overview of the life of Federico Garcia Lorca before a more in depth talk on the poet in March.
In January we will be taking an historical walk around the old part of Malaga.
Our February talk will be on the “Spanish History of Spices”
There will be further coach tours in the New Year. A trip around the Vega in Granada to where Lorca was born; where he grew up and where he was shot is planned as well as a trip to Italica in Sevilla the birthplace of the Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian.
If you would like to join the Torrox Spanish History Group then please email Patricia at patricianerja at hotmail dot come.

Disabled Parking Permits: Can someone please enlighten me as to the correct procedure to obtain a permit? I am now crippled with arthritis in the knees, can only walk a very short distance, and having gone to see a specialist at the Hospital, and receiving a 100 euro fine for parking on a disabled space, decided that enough is enough! Enquired from my GP, who didn’t seem to know much, beyond that one had to go to the local Ayuntamiento, and thence to Malaga. But there must be a simpler way, or at least someone who will do what is necessary for a fee. If anyone can assist with the necessary info, I shall be most grateful. Jeremy, Algarrobo; melbury75 @ gmail .com (no gaps) (Please forward replies to DigameXtra. -Ed.)
