Re: Its cold!

We sat watching the flamenco show Carmen del Salvador Tavero last night, it started at 22.00and finished just before midnight. It was pretty cold, the bull ring was freezing! I think summer is due to start here , just east of Sevilla, next week.

I did wonder if anything to do with prickly pears. The plants along our track are very badly affected by a white fungi, look like the hedge is almost dead. The fungus is spreading on cactus further along track too.

Tiny fly, with white wings

Re: The Frustrations of Unicaja

We used to bank with Unicaja but decided to transfer to BBVA when they offered free banking, which at the time Unicaja did not.

Re: 12 places to visit in Andalucia in 2017

Maureenscot, do you know the opening time of the museum please? My husband was born in Douglas, so would be interested in visiting the museum. We visited Teba a few years ago, but did not go into the museum.

Re: Malaga car hire.

Another question, if they use a car hire that is based at the airport, we will have to meet with the baby seat and husband is being added as 2nd driver, it is possible to get to car hire place from 'outside' the arrivals area?
