"official exchange rate" ?

Could you please clarify. I recently inquired how to treat UK bank interest and Hacienda told me I need to convert each monthly payment at the rate pertaining on the day it was made.
Is there just one annual rate to be used for pensions?

The Robledal route is referred to as the "easy" and prettiest route by Charles Davis in Walk the Axarquia. I'd love to know how you get on as I haven't been there either. We need more walking info on this board. I'm concentrating on everything around the edge of the Guadalhorce Valley and ...

Fuerteventura

I feel the need to visit Fuerteventura some time this year. I assume that it's like a bigger, flatter version of Lanzarote with better beaches. Has anyone got any recommendations for places to go/avoid/stay? I'm not into built up areas. BTW I notice that flying via Madrid is far, far cheaper than go...

I'm getting one of my sinking feelings. Our fancy coffee machine (the size of a microwave oven) has stopped cooperating after 11 months. I note that the Service section of the Boulanger website is just a list of manufacturers' addresses. Is it worth dragging it to La Canada or are they just going to...

Steering things back to the useless residency document, I suggest a (not entirely legal) temporary solution. If it is the case that the only time I would need to prove residency is when stopped by traffic police then I intend to flash my tarjeta sanitaria. In conjunction with my passport, would this...

How about the National Police for Coin? Not another early morning trek to Marbella, is it?

Disturbing rumours about Coin dump

This being election season, a number of rumours are flying around. The Alternativa Ciudadana party is telling us that the coalition currently in power has agreed to transform the hideous escombrera, which is virtually adjacent to the hermita into a permanent REGIONAL treatment centre for building wa...

Well replication is pretty unlikely, but what are you going to do when one flake of your dandruff turns up (or is placed) at the scene of a crime or gets mixed up with someone else's in a police laboratory? Can you talk your way out of that? False positives are rare when the database is small but wh...

"anyone with nothing to hide will have nothing to fear" Am I the only one who winces when someone says this? My Spanish mother-in-law said it last week about life under Franco. She seemed to have forgotten that she grew up in a civil war refugee camp and that some of her relatives spent th...

Cat training

Your recommendations for keeping a scabby, bleeding stray cat out of my house will be gratefully accepted. We've done nothing to encourage his presence and always remove him within seconds of his entry. He won't take no for an answer and sees any open door or window as an invitation. Lately he has s...
