Big bangs

I live in Quesada and every now and then there are massive bangs... sounds like mortar guns they shake the hose they are so loud!
I know they have festivals here but these bangs don't coincide with festivals! Any ideas what the bangs are and why they do it? It's like dynamite going off


Smoking law in Spain

Smoking at bars and cafes in the urbanization. Is it not a law regulating where smoking is forbidden? A matter for Policia Local?

It is in the U.K as we all know does that not mean its a E.U law and so should be the same in Spain? Anyone know?

It is not a EU law.

Well it should be as far as I am concerned, people that smoke are not only killing them selves but those around them.
All in all is a very silly thing to do.

And one person survived when jumping from an airplane without a functioning parachute. So why use a parachute? Unnecessary cost.

Well I am convinced, I will be taking up smoking tomorrow and look forward to a long healthy life.

A SPANISH LIFE NEWS: Torrevieja prostitute’s price of silence

Two women have been arrested and charged by the Guardia Civil for blackmail and threatening behaviour after they extracted over 90,000 euros from a resident of San Miguel de la Salinas.

The man had paid one of the women, a 32-year old Romanian, for sex, over 12 months ago, since which time she had been threatening him. Either he paid her money or she told his wife that she was a prostitute who had regularly been providing her husband with sex.

He chose the former and in the ensuing period he is understood to have given the woman two cars and over 90,000 euros in cash.

The man met the prostitute, a hostess in a Torrevieja club in December 2016. Apparently, he had several sexual encounters with her.

Everything seemed to go well until she began asking for large amounts of money in exchange for her silence. The first time was 40,000 euros. The man agreed and made the payment through the prostitute’s bank account. He thought that would be an end to the situation, but he was wrong.

Shortly afterwards she demanded another 25,000 euros. On that occasion, it was not to her bank account, but to that of a male relative. Once again the sanmiguelero agreed to the request and paid for her silence, but it did not work either. The woman asked again for another 25,000 euros and this time she wanted it paid in cash. She also asked for two cars which he gave to he and never saw again.

With the situation having gone on for over a year the man finally chose to denounce the situation to the San Miguel Guardia Civil who opened their investigation in December 2017. They found that it was not one but two women who have been pocketing the cash, the Romanian and her 36-year old Bosnian friend.

Both were subsequently arrested and charged with crimes of extortion and threatening behaviour. The two women appeared in court last week but after being charged the pair were released and are now awaiting trial.


I bet they are not in Spain anymore... fancy releasing them!!!

Indian spices

Where is the best place to buy indian spices in bulk around Catral please


I was watching a program on T.V called something like “bargin lovin Brits” I will leave you to work out what it was about.
Well they showed 2 ladies out side the little English Shop by the petrol station near the arches, in Quesada, they had set up a little sample table of Indian food which they sold in pre made up kits, it had all the spices in so you could cook it yourself at home.

They Said they had started the business because it was so hard to get spices in Spain, if you can track them down then I am sure they can help you.
