I am here

Hi Folks just a quick msg to say weather very hot, had rain for 10 mins monday night, and cooled down alot, we have been on beach and by the pool. I am shocked that alot of places are shut down, and prices in english bars on fish alley ie dolphin are expensive.. already spent a fortune, gunna stick to spanish bars, gutted about tipi tapa closed down, its feria start this friday, off to mijas tomorrow to have tapas and sightseeing, then saturday to malaga for the day, gibraltar trip next tuesday, just to let everyone know its 16 euros for the express day trip at maxi travel,buses and trains dirt cheap and the rate for euro at the mo is 1.16 euro to pound

Thats all report back in a few days.

Oh another 2 things.

Macdonalds has even closed.

And Bmi I flew with delayed 1 and half hrs and we had the worst turberlance ever.

There was a big storm with heavy rain over the mountains Kazz the turbulence would have related to that.

McD`s has been shut a long while I think.

Pricewise the "english" bar owners just dont seem to be able to adapt to La Crisis and think by charging fewer customers more money they can get by. Good luck to em!!!

I dont wish them any harm but they need to adapt. Most of the Spanish bars/rest have meal deals on and are getting by, albeit with tightened belts.

WS - don't let Bigconor get you to respond to his low levels. His other current post is despicable and needs removing a.s.a.p.
