A Stranger in Town ..
An Englishman in Spain - thoughts and impressions.
The story of our adventure in Spain
In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.
This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.
It would appear that Spain and her cucumbers - latest information - is not the source of the E.coli outbreak in Germany.
This good news for Spain will not help the farmers who have had to destroy their crops due to a lack of demand. No doubt sales of salad vegetables produced in all European states will drop dramatically and producers will suffer.
Further investigation continues in Germany to find the source as the death toll rises.
The tourist industry in Germany must be badly hit by now I would imagine.
I just hope that the source is not traced back to the UK ....
