Thanks so much!!!!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Loved the photos, Izzy. Looks hot and dry!
So how did you wind up moving to Spain from England?
So many beautiful old buildings. I love the architecture, and there are a lot more diverse landscapes then I would have imagined. Soooo pretty there!! Thanks for posting these Izy. :)
now there's a girl after me own heart. i'd have jumped up and down on it, too, right next to her.Originally Posted by Izy
how odd that enough people could ignore the history and national sentiment to keep that restaurant in business. i would have hoped such things would be more important than money and a meal in a tourist trap. what's next? strip malls in auschwitz? :cry:
OH I wish I had visited all these places, alas no, though we hope in time to visit the main cities, funds permitting of course!!Originally Posted by blahel
These photos were forwarded to me by a close friend, so I won't take credit for them tee hee!!
Thats an easy one to answer - Better weather, better lifestyle......do I need to go any further....NO!!!!! :D :DOriginally Posted by Harmony
Patrice, I hear what your saying, but it is more a need to diversify and move forward, this area is in the country and although it is expanding with foreigners the upside is that we are bringing wealth and improvements with us. The locals in general are very welcoming, as until 5-10 years ago this area was very poor, mainly olive production, lemons and oranges. I was so dismayed when it was explained to me why the fields were FULL of orange and lemons groves which we going completely to waste....The cost of the labour to pick the crops cost more than the expected price of the crops, hence they leave them to rot on the trees, and so you maybe can understand why principles are overlooked, and we all know what the world economy is like, and spain has been hit too. :(Originally Posted by PatriceJ
