We are in Torrox Costa, just opposite Mercadona and BBVA, in the main entrance door that is between MAPFRE and ÓPTICA SALTO, in the first floor.

Every Monday we will publish in Digamextra the title of the short film for the next Thursday or you can also know it by entering our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/malagalingo/

Recommendations wanted for Spanish teacher in the Velez-Malaga/Torre Del Mar: I am looking for a Spanish teacher in the Velez-Malaga/Torre Del Mar area. Someone that I can go to once or twice a week. I want to learn general Spanish, not take exams, I just want to be a bit better than I am. Do any readers have any recommendations? Please contact Mark at: markinspain1 AT gmail DOT com (Algarrobo)


Recommendation: Reliable plumber. I would like to echo the recommendations of at least two Digamextra subscribers who, like me, have had a very positive experience by employing Rob Reed of Velez Malaga for our plumbing issues.
Rob is an experienced plumber who definitely knows his trade. He resolved the problem we had with a gas boiler and shower – he was quick, pleasant, and did the job at a very fair price. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rob. He can be contacted on 642 571 171 or 0044 74637 66536

Cinesur el Engenio Ride-share: Hi, is there anyone in Torrox pueblo who attends the Ballet screenings at el Engenio occasionally, or, who are planning on seeing Don Quixote in February, who would be willing to give someone in the village a lift home and drop one person in El Morche on the way? Share petrol cost. Or, someone who would like to share the cost of a cab home? Thanks. Valerie. El Morche.
