Probably because she speaks fluent Spanish and is intelligent enough to want to know :roll:

Many immigrants speak fluent spanish and intelligence doesnt come in to it.

I do know the difference between a foreigner or a national speaking spanish. Anyway he seems to be a friend of the supermarket staff too.

I was quite surprised to read an article this morning on the web site"Typically Spanish" in which a British Insurance company, which specialises in the travel insurance for the over 50’s, 50plus Insurance, has warned about the risk of travelling to Spain. The company is telling potential travellers of the increased risk of violent robbery and theft, a result of the large increase in unemployment. The statement notes that the number of robberies per inhabitant in Spain is 1,123.19 for every 100,000 residents, compared to just 183.83 in Britain.


Must confess I have always felt safe in Spain although an article in a recent Expatica circular was warning of a plague of pickpockets in Barcelona and an increase in violent robberies in that city

Does anyone know about this? haven't seen anything in the spanish news!

Lavanda , I have been looking for ideas for our new political party, I found this in the news in velez malaga which looks like a great solution to helping to ease the crisis, maybe we could look into it in more detail to include it in our list of things we can offer the nation if you become president..............

"Imparten clases de baile para los empresarios preocupados por la crisis"

what do you reckon? could be the answer the politicians have so far overlooked.

thanks for your help Paula, that´s another minister (or ministress??) we have lined up ..would you like to be minister for "fiestas"? believe me we are going to have a lot of fiestas !!
I´m not sure that Morris dancing is exactly what the depressed businessman want to dance...but it will be taken into consideration and discussed at the cabinet meeting.

if you need a second home to host the parties that would be taken into account so you could claim for the neccessity of having a second home and claim for funds to be made available for the purchase.
