Here's some photo's from last night San Juan party at Reiner's Pub. A most enjoyable evening was had by all.
Its that time of the year again when bonfires are lit all over the island to celebrate the San Juan Fiesta. Reiner is having a special San Juan barbecue on Friday 23rd June and everyone is welcome. He told me last night that the bonfire would be built today, not sure if it will be as big as last year's, we'll have to wait and see. The cost of the bbq is 13.95€ per person and the evening starts at 19hrs. Strongly advise you to book your table as the best ones will reserve quickly. Last year was a sellout and everyone enjoyed the evening. Check out this link for photos from last year. I think we shall pop down during the evening, so perhaps see you there. Feliz fiesta de San Juan !
I have just spoken with Samira and Yann who run the Jardin Tropical restuarant in Charco del Palo and they told me that they have to return to France because Yann's mother is very ill and needs their support. The restaurant will be closed from 23rd June for a few weeks, possibly till the end of July. Samira has my contact details and will email me once they know their plans to return to Charco del Palo.
Its always very sad when our parents get to this stage in life, all we can do is offer them the support and love that they gave to us while we were growing up.
We hope all goes well in France.
Alan and I have just got back from a weeks holiday in mainland Spain. We flew into Seville then drove on to Cordoba for a few nights. We stayed in the old part of the city in the Exe Conquistador Hotel which is opposite the Mezquita Cathedral. Had we not used google maps I think we would still be driving around looking for the hotel. And, just when we thought we had it all sorted, we missed a turn and we couldn't turn back, and our destination changed from 2 mins to 20mins, we had to drive all around the city again to get back to our missed road, I hasten to add we did not miss it the second time around. The streets are a bit narrow to say the least (see photo below). We visited the Mesquita one morning before it got hot, Oh did I mention just how hot it was, 43º to 46º by lunchtime, unbearable to be honest, anyhow our visit to the Mesquita was at 8.30am and it was still cool inside. We booked to go to the bell tower for 10am to get a better view of the city, well worth the climb and only 2€ each, bargain.
Regardless of the heat we had a great few days in Cordoba, we found some really nice restaurants, did a bit of retail therapy, and found a nice bar that served Aperol spritzers, my favourite, very nice, Lambo stuck with the VAT's.
We ended our holiday in a villa just outside Malaga, so this part of the holiday was for relaxing and swimming, I am pleased to say that it was a little cooler near the coast, but not that much.
All in all a very nice trip.
Just thought I'd share this holiday with my friends. xx
I have just come back from our local supermarket in Charco del Palo and I noticed that the opening hours have changed for the month of June.
It will be open from 8.30hrs till 13.30hrs Monday to Saturday
Closed all day Sunday.
This is just for the month of June. I will keep you updated if anything changes.
