For Sale: A pair of brand new DocPrice MediFlex professional shoes size 41 (UK 7,5) for footlength 27 cm (10,63 inch) – unisex – color irish ivy (a light mossy green – not blue as they appear on the foto) – 98 Euros
The weight is only 287g, they have a non-slip sole and no laces, but a flexfit system to put easily on and off. The upper material has a heat-insulating effect.
The shoes have removable insoles so you can put your individual orthopaedic ones in if you want to – that’s why I already bought 3 pairs of these really comfortable shoes.
This pair has arrived yesterday and should have been the fourth one. But unfortunately the colour shown in the catalogue is similar to the one on my foto (must have to do with reflections). In reality it is green and I definitely do not like green for clothes (just a personal quirk).
In case of interest please contact me: Annette – email: el DOT cerro AT email DOT de (without spaces)
I live in the Cómpeta campo and can meet at Portichuelo / Venta de Palma or at the central carpark.


Neighbours: We have had a house here in Axarquia for 3 years and never seen our direct neighbours, as the houses have been empty all this time, the other neighbours know that one set are from Granada and the other from Malaga, but no more than that. Does anybody have any advice on how to contact them? Deborah, Torrox

Wedding Venue Wanted: We would be very grateful for any leads or ideas that DigameXtra readers may have regarding a wedding venue.
Ideally we are looking for cortijo style; rustic and interesting with the capability to cater for about 150 outside, but if poor weather prevails, then with an emergency option to do it indoors. Should be within 1 hr of the beach.
Please send any ideas to me.

Selling of pups? : Please do not support the selling in puppies on DigameXtra, this country is bursting at the seems with un neutered, abused and abandoned animals. Many thanks. Carolyn, cansouthwell AT gmail DOT com
Editor’s Reply: Carolyn, I am sympathetic to your position, but not enough to ban the posting of dogs for sale ads.
Some people want to buy/sell puppies with confirmed parentage, that were never traumatized or exposed to the diseases carried by animals living wild. As a long time owner of rescue dogs I find that attitude understandable. Some rescue dogs can be difficult to re-train and not all adapt well to new situations. Encouraging people to adopt abandoned dogs is a noble cause yet I see no benefit to abandoned dogs by discouraging the sale of properly bred dogs. If, as has been proposed by dog advocates, Spain regulates the sale of dogs, requiring sellers to be registered, I will require sellers to include their registration numbers in their ads.
