Re: Are prices coming down ?

Fuel is down quite a lot in the UK too. I think the huge price drops in the shops are signs of the beginning of the end for more major chains - desperate measures to get us spending again :roll:

Re: looking for a new part of Andalucia to visit

I really love the Subbetica region South of Cordoba. It's still relatively undiscovered with some beautiful villages, fantastic scenery and amazing wildlife. The big plus, of course, is Cordoba itself :D

Re: So...Are we the new poor??

'South from Granada' is still one of my favourite books. A few years ago I nearly bought a house in Yegen because of the Brenan connection!

Although she was fine with any other races and normally perfectly gentle and well-behaved, she would try to attack any Spanish male she saw! I had ...
