Re: A right to a view

In Spain, if you think they might, they will. No rights whatsoever concerning views, but there are regulations on how close to boundries they can build.

Re: Anyone recognise this bird

Thanks for the replies everyone, nothing conclusive, but I would go with the diet / secretions theory. Particularly as I saw another one this morning with very pink head and wing feathers, however as it was flying away from me I couldn't see if it had the bluey green colour on its underside like the...

Re: Daily running time for Pool Pump

Pool water should be recirculated approximately twice a day.

If your pool is 500 cu mtr, that is 50,000 litres, therefore you need to run 100,000 litrs through your pump.

If your pump is capable of 15,000 ltrs / hour, the math is simple.

100,000 / 15000 = 6.66 or 7 hours running time.

Re: UK mobile phone stopped working

I may be missing something here, but if you are using a phone in Spain for the majority of the time, why not get a Spanish phone and number ??

Re: Water tanks, yes or no?

I should hang on to your tank, the mains supply in Competa can be a bit hit and miss, particularly in summer. At least with a tank you have a couple of days back up if the supply is cut.

Re: Autonomo and pensions

Are you saying that you only paid Autonomo for one year, and then qualified for a Spanish pension ? Do you receive the full pension or just a percentage ?

Re: malaga airport bus

Alameda Principal ( Sur) is, as Costakid quiet rightly pointed out, at the bottom of Calle Larios.

Free at Last - Plaza de Consitucion is at the top end of C/ Larios.
