Greetings from Spain. My name is Antonio Carmona. There���s something I will never forget in my life, and that���s my stay in Matlock during several summers in the late seventies, early eighties. Spain was such a different country to what it is now, so there was a great contrast between Derbyshire and La Mancha of Don Quixote, where I live, which impressed me so much, and I was just seventeen, if you know what I mean (that last sentence sounds like a song, doesn���t it?).
���Chesterfield Centre��� was (I think it still is) a short of organization, whose endeavour consisted on accommodating Spanish students with English families, living in their own houses, so as to make this students share there customs, language, everyday life��� I was one of those students. We had English classes every morning, given by English teachers.
I can clearly recall one of them who became a very good friend of mine. Her name was Libby and she was married to a man called Keith. They had a one year old child, Sam, and lived in Starkholmes (Matlock). Unfortunately I can���t remember their family name. I know that they left to Hong Kong in 1981 for a few years.
I would really appreciate it, if you gave me any kind of information about this family or if any of you want to share their memories about this time. Looking forward to hearing from you,
