Chapi Pineda Trio Jazz Concert January 19th: Chapi Pineda Trio formed by Chapi Pineda (guitar), Manuel Luque (drums) and Ángel Andrés Muñoz (piano).

His guitar draws out a music that can be breathed, sensed, even smelled. With closed eyes it sounds equally intense. His contemporary approach mixes traditional flamenco sounds with the dissonant and magical notes of jazz. His is a different kind of music, with variegated rhythms and intense color.

Recommendation Wanted: Can anyone recommend a salon doing a good pedicure, by that I mean one that not only makes your toe nails pretty but deals with hard skin or corns etc. I have used the same salon in Torrox Costa for many years where I got the benefits of chiropody but also pretty painted toe nails but she has now closed her salon. I am in Torrox campo but prepared to travel Nerja to Torre Del Mar but obviously would prefer Torrox area. This sounds like an indulgence but with arthritic hips it is a task impossible to do for ones self without great pain and discomfort.

Child Friendly Swimming Pool: We are soon having a visit from young grandchildren, ages 3 and 5. Obviously our swimming pool will be far too cold for them (or indeed us) to use so we are looking for an indoor pool in the Velez Malaga/Torre del Mar area suitable for the little darlings. We live near lake Viñuela and are aware that there are pools in the area but we don’t know where they are or their suitability for toddlers.
We would be grateful if anyone who has any information that could help us would be kind enough to share their knowledge with us. Thanks in anticipation, Anne and Peter
