Tino by Dreamers have beautiful stones but arent cheap, marbella stone gallery are also ok. Otherwise try the Marbella, San Pedro, La campana and estepona poligonos and look for the open yards with lots of dust coming out where they are cutting stones.

The rudeness of many registered disabled people is appalling and their speediness in judging others quite surprising. I agree completely, people are far too ready to question someone elses use of this space. People with disabled passengers can drop them off at the door and then go and park the car,...

Why so many magazines, newspapers guide and radio stations?

Not a question more of a rant, tired of so many different medias we have in this little area its scary when you think about it. Particularly for advertisers it can be very confusing and expensive finding which ones to use.

What do you all think?

Consumer rights in spain?
Ha, ha, ha and HA!

No they do actually exist but generally the practise is that you have to deal with the manufacturer as they are the ones who provide the warranty unless you are dealing with high end products

Are residents now allowed to drive on foreign EU plates?

A friend told me he heard on the radio that residents are now permitted to drive around on foreign plates as long as they are from an EU country and the tax has been paid in that country. Is that correct?

Ive never seen main gas, what a lot of apartment buildings have is a gas container that repsol come by and refill gas is then piped to all apartments, sometimes they also use the large industrial orange bottles that are about 2m tall. So as far as apartment occupants are concerned its mains gas.
