Re: Car theft

Marbella is is no worse than anywhere else. Don't believe Facebook. Lock the car, make sure the insurance is.up.to date, and don't leave valuables on show. Life is too short to worry.

Re: Buying a TV

We bought a tdt systems 50" tv from carrefour for €299. It's the same price direct from their website.

We've had it a few years now and it seems decent enough.
