Re: Old maps of Estepona

Stumbled on this old thread I started.

The Hotel Marravilla and the new one next door are nearing completion

They will be a great asset to Estepona

Re: Hire car had a puncture

Thanks for the input.

It's particularly galling if you are in a hire car as the hire company get two new tyres and you pay for them

Hire car had a puncture

On another forum a poster said they had a front wheel puncture.
Rang the hire company who said get it changed.

Went to a tyre place and they said Spanish Law compels them to change both wheels.

Seems a bit odd to me.

Re: music

I'd be interested in how you came to be playing those two stones songs Manchester.

I've never heard a violin being used in Flamenco, but I think it would fit in well with the gypsy vibe.

Violins and cellos are frequently used in all generes of music e.g. Gypsy Jazz of Django and Stephan Graphelli.

Re: castillo do colomares benelmadena

If you don't mind going into Torremolinos there is the casa de Los Navajas.

It is a beautiful venue and is used for weddings

Good luck

Re: speeding

I thought hire companies were in the habit of paying fines for you and debiting your card after adding on a hefty admin fee.

Thanks both.
I was at The Red Lion open mic last night.
Sang a sad song.
Some people got so emotional, they had to leave the room.

Re Malaga

I remember it from the late 80s. I'd rather have it as it is now. All the work that has been done has to be paid for via the rates and Taxes, so inevitably prices will go up.

Katy....
Here's a little song I made up out of my own brain about my hero, John Lennon.

I'm better as part of a five piece 60s covers band. The Vintage Sixties Company.

Enjoy your trip to Nerja.
I have already started planning our trip.
I use Tripadvisor an awful lot.
My nom de plume on there is Trickster9

We are staying in the Coronado Appts on Calle Huerta. Do you know them?

I would be grateful for any tips on Nerja as well.

Olive. I looked Duende up. Literally Elf. But in this context it seems to be the concept of art in any form being able to stir an emotion. I do have it. I think most people do. I'm a musician ( of sorts) myself and can easily be brought to tears by an evocative piece. In the case of Flamenco singing...
