Change of Address procedure: Does anybody of you know how one can change his address at the Junta de Andalucía? They continue sending letters to the old address. Apparently you have to go there with your padron papers, but where do you go in Malaga? What is the main address? Can not find it anywhere. Nicole, Nerja
