Agree, like the guy in Granada in today's paper that committed suicide just before he was about to be evicted form his house. Police that went to evict him found that he had hanged himself. I gave a link to this excellent blog in another thread, there are people there effectively squatting as they couldn't pay their mortgages, no electricity, no water.

The sad thing, the political class do not have any answers.

The people at the top are paid too much ( La Liga footballers etc ), the people who are working and in the middle are being bled dry, and the underclass, whether working or not, are being trod upon.

This I guess is the new order.

Hi Mexico K. Did you move as I am buying a property in Lanjaron in the Sierra Nevada foothills at the end of May and hope to rent over summer months on air bnb. Your husbands carpentry skills and yourself taking promotional photos could be a good combination. Unfortunately I will only be there this year for the last 3 weeks of August and the last 2 weeks of October. Please message back if you may be in area and we might be able to plot a plan !

The original post is quite old but I will add my twopenneth, I was very recently in Madrid and observed the following: bars packed at night with young Spaniards, most of them ordering cokes or tonic water and then surreptitiously filling their glasses from bottles secreted within their clothes, fact !

I was in a bar last week, catering more or less for Real Madrid fans, second last game of the season which they won to go 3 points clear ( they have won the title tonight ).

The place was packed. A few minutes after the final whistle, it was almost empty. A lot of the "fans" were either not drinking or were nursing the same half of beer ( OK lager then ) for the whole game. I have seen this happen in this bar time after time.
