ell it’s been a scorcher these last few weeks, but alas, the holidays are nearly over and it’s time to get back to work and start gearing up for Christmas (I thought I would mention it before the cheap tinsel starts to make an appearance). This month we’ve gone all natural! Nude colours on the fashion spread, ‘green’ beauty tips, heating your home with natural fuels and even taking a trip to Bioparc. I could have gone full out and put in some really healthy recipes, but you’re probably all sick to death of salads, so I’ve featured some nice gooey cake ideas this month, get stuck in and don’t bother counting the calories as the swimsuits will be going back in the wardrobe soon. Don’t forget if you cannot get a copy of the Guide at any point, you can catch up with us every month at www.thinkspain.com, where you can read the interactive version. Until next month.......

Julia Roberts to Most retirees want to work get prize at San beyond Sebastián Film age 65 Festival SOME 60 per cent of the 2,500 over65s interviewed claim they would like to be able to carry on working in paid employment. Most value their independence very highly, with 87 per cent saying they prefer to live in their own homes even if this means living alone. In fact, only 16 per cent of the elderly live alone, and they are mostly women living in rural locations. Head of the institute of the elderly and social services, Francisco Moza, says the same questionnaire was carried out in 1993 and that ‘things have changed a lot’ since then. He said the over-65s were becoming more and more active, in better health, and were mainly more highly qualified.

ACTRESS JULIA ROBERTS is due to net an award at the upcoming San Sebastián Film Festival. The Hollywood stunner, who shot to fame with Pretty woman alongside Richard Gere and is perhaps better known nowadays for her leading role in Notting Hill as Hugh Grant's actress girlfriend, has been chosen to receive the Premio Donostia. She will present her latest work, Eat pray love, alongside actors Javier Bardem and Richard Jenkins and the film's director, Ryan Murphy. This is Ryan Murphy's second full-length film, following his silver-screen début with the black comedy Running with scissors.

The Islamic community fights back over burkha ban MUSLIMS IN LLEIDA have presented six written complaints to the city council over its decision to ban the burkha in public buildings. The Watani Association for Freedom and Justice has said that if local authorities do not respond to their complaints, they will take the matter to the court. Head of the association, Mourad ElBoudouhi, says the city council 'does not have the legal right' to impose such a ban and that there is no higher law applicable in either the region or the country allowing them to do so. El-Boudouhi says it is a 'violation of freedom of religion', a freedom that is contained in the Spanish Constitution, and therefore a breach of human rights as well as discrimination. The association says the city council is

“We should not waste what these people still have to offer – aside from just being babysitters for the grandchildren,” Moza states. This said, around 70 per cent of over-65s regularly look after their grandchildren, often to a greater extent than the children’s own parents do.

Shakira could be fined over video shoot in Barcelona COLOMBIAN POP-ROCKER Shakira is filming her next video in Barcelona, and will also be performing in the city's Palau Sant Jordi on November 24 this year. But she could face a fine from Barcelona city council for doing so. The half-Lebanese blonde bombshell was filming the first video for her next album, Sale el sol, on the Barceloneta beach, and skating at the Hotel W's rink. She caused jaws to drop when she skated along the beach, and was then seen coming back down the esplanade on a Harley Davidson. Shakira also biked down the Paseo Juan de Borbó. During the scenes, she rode the motorbike without a helmet, and also danced with fans in a fountain in the Pla de Palau to Waka Waka after the cameras stopped rolling. And the council did not approve of her behaviour, saying both actions were against public byelaws. They say she should have asked permission first, and intend to study the video footage on Youtube in order to sanction her for her behaviour. This is not the first time the 33-year-old artist,

discriminating a g a i n s t women and curtailing their rights. “Nobody has the right to speak for, or decide for, these women,” stresses ElBoudouhi. He says the solution would be for those women who choose to wear a burkha to be asked to uncover their faces to identify themselves upon entering public buildings, and then be permitted to put their burkha back on if they wish. “We would also say that women can be refused entry if they refuse to take off their burkha merely to identify themselves, but do not agree that they should be fined,” said ElBoudouhi. Lleida city council has announced women entering public buildings will be fined up to 600 euros for wearing a burkha. The Watani association has also complained about the council's refusal to build a mosque after the existing one was shut because of overcrowding. “We fulfil our obligations to the city, we pay our taxes and respect its laws, so we ask that they respect us,” said its representative.

born Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll – her second surname betraying her Colombian mum's Catalán descent - has shot her music videos in Spain. The clip for No in 2005 was filmed in the port of Barcelona, and the video for Gipsy, with Rafa Nadal, was also shot in Spain. She was also photographed in a cornfield in Ibiza in July. The Barraquina-born singer, who launched her first album at the age of 20, has three dates for her Spanish tour this year, which are to be confirmed. One of these is in November in Barcelona.

Ruins of dwelling from High Roman Empire found in Segovia THE REMAINS of a house built in the time of the High Roman Empire (roughly between one and two centuries A.D.) have been found under the main square in Segovia. The Roman ruins were discovered during the course of excavation work in the Plaza Mayor, which had already revealed a 17th century house. The archeologists in charge of the excavation, Clara Martín and Txemi Labrador, are working on the hypothesis that the building formed part of a "domus" or series of living quarters, rather than a monument. One of the rooms revealed by the archaeologists' dig boasts murals and a clay floor and is one of the few ruins from the High

Roman era to have been found in tact in Segovia. These new findings, coupled with other Roman ruins recently discovered around the Plaza de Guevara, have brought shape to Segovia as a Roman settlement at the highest and flattest part of the town, a much richer view of the historic town than was previously available looking at the famous aqueduct alone.

No-frills airlines are top for Spanish tourists

LOW-COST AIRLINES are still the firm favourites among tourists travelling to Spain, according to a recent survey by the ministry of tourism. In July, some 6.9 million passengers passed through Spain's airports, with a 10 per cent rise in the numbers of those using budget airlines compared to just three per cent more who used 'traditional' carriers such as BA or Iberia. Overall, 58.4 per cent of passengers took the cheap flight option. In the first half of 2010, 32.4 million passengers arrived in Spain – an increase of 2.2 per cent on 2009. No-frills airlines transported 17.94 million of these.

Fito and Alejandro Sanz: top-selling artists of 2009

Spain responsible for the world’s highest number of email viruses SPAIN HAS THE highest number of ‘infected’ emails sent in the world, a chilling report from MessageLabs Intelligence reveals. Some 64.1 per cent of junk mail received by surfers in Spain contains what is known as ‘malware’, a term that covers a multitude of sins including spyware, Trojans, and viruses. The global ratio of emails containing dangerous programmes is said to be one in every 327.6, or 0.3% of all electronicallytransmitted communications. And the same report reveals that dangerous spam messages

has increased by 95 per cent in Spain alone since last year. But Spain is not the only culprit – the UK is responsible for 4.5 per cent of the world’s spam, a figure that has doubled since April this year, making it the fourthbiggest culprit after the USA, India and Brazil. Among the top ten countries are Spain, Germany, France and Italy.

Michelle Obama calls Alhambra Palace ‘unforgettable’ FIRST LADY of the USA, Michelle Obama, says her visit to the Alhambra Palace was ‘unforgettable’. Along with her daughter, Sasha, she enjoyed a stroll around the Patio de los Arrayanes and the Patio de los Leones, the rooms of Washington Irving and the Generalife gardens, among other attractions at the famous Granadabased palace. The two VIP visitors also enjoyed some typical dishes from the area, such as cold garlic soup, salmorejo, and locally-produced cheese and Serrano ham. Later, they watched a flamenco display and had a chance to take part, with the organisers saying Michelle ‘had a good rhythm’ and got the hang of the clapping. Mrs Obama invited the flamenco group to put on a show in the USA at a later date.

Zara and Desigual launch online shops

ALEJANDRO SANZ, David Bisbal and Fito y los Fitipaldis were among the best-selling artists in Spain in 2009. Other success stories include Murcia-based duo Estopa, pop-rockers El Canto del Loco, and Amaia Montero who left La Oreja de Van Gogh at the beginning of 2008 to launch a solo career. Fito y los Fitipaldis’ latest album, Antes de que cuente diez (‘before I count to ten’) and that of Alejandro Sanz (pictured), Paraíso Express, were the two best-selling CDs last year. Among foreign artists who have hogged the charts in Spain in the last year were Irish veterans U2, Italian modern classical group Il Divo, Coldplay with Viva la vida, Bruce Springsteen with Working on a dream, Michael Jackson’s posthumous album This is it, and the soundtrack for the film Hanna Montana.

ZARA’S NEW online store is set to rocket the popular clothing chain into the high-street stratosphere. The international brand, which is part of the Galicia-based Inditex chain – also covering Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka and Oysho – will now compete against some of Spain’s most exclusive labels such as Armand Basi and Custo Barcelona, streetwear firm Desigual and high-street giant, Mango. Desigual will launch its collection online next month, at the same time as Zara. Both say they have already received ‘multiple requests’ from people who live a long way from their nearest store to provide an online delivery service. Mango started its own shopping website 10 years ago, when internet retailing was less of a guaranteed success, but has reported excellent results.

AUSTRALIAN ACTRESS Naomi Watts is due to film a movie about the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. It will be shot mostly in Alicante's Ciudad de la Luz (City of Light) studio, with the scenes where the tidal wave hits the shores being filmed in a huge water tank, where Naomi became drenched. Although Watts has a stunt-double for some scenes, she admitted she was inside the tank for some seven or eight hours. Around 100 people, including a number of divers, form the cast of the hard-hitting film, titled The Impossible. The second part of the film will be shot in Thailand, after filming finishes in Alicante in October. Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, the film's starstudded cast includes Ewan McGregor, Marta Etura, and Tom Holland, who started his career as the young ballerina Billy Elliot.


Bollywood and Korean mudbath festival inspired by Tomatina

FILM DIRECTORS from Bollywood say they have taken their inspiration from the Tomatina in Buñol (Valencia), the world’s largest tomato fight. A number of cinema cameras were set up last month in Buñol for the upcoming Zindagi na milegi Dobara (‘you only live once’). The leading lady was at the Tomatina, having also recently shot scenes at Pamplona’s Sanfermínes bull-running fiesta. And the Tomatina has not only reached India – the Government of Korea, headed up by a professor at the Pai Chai University, have also been following the festival. They have been collating information about how it is organised to help them with their annual Mud Festival in the town of Boryeong, which has been an annual tradition for 12 years. “We’re interested in the Tomatina and our Mud Festival being ‘sisters’, since even though in our country we’ve managed to attract over two million people in the last few years, we don’t have the same international fame as the Tomatina in Buñol,” says professor GangHoan Jeong.

Holidaymakers from abroad spend more in Spain this year

Spanish climber gets international recognition as Korean unmasked as cheat THE SOUTH KOREAN Mountaineering Federation has announced that it does not recognise Oh Eun-Sun's ascent of Kanchenjunga one of the world's 14 eight-thousanders, making Spain's Edurne Pasabán the first woman in the world to conquer all 14 of the world's highest peaks. There were so many doubts about the validity of Miss Oh's conquest of Kanchenjunga that her own mountaineering federation had no choice but to rule that she had not in fact completed all eightthousanders when she conquered Annapurna on April 27th this year, therefore nullifying her claim to be the first woman to achieve the goal. Spain's Edurne Pasabán (pictured) completed her 14

eight-thousanders just a few days after Miss Oh, with her conquest of Shisha Pangma on May 17th this year. Pasabán now officially becomes the first woman to have scaled the world's 14 highest mountains, something that the Basque Country mountaineer described as "the icing on the cake" and an "absolute recognition" of her achievement. Nevertheless, Pasabán admitted that the news did not change that much for her, although she was "relieved" not to be the only one who had doubted the validity of the Korean climber's claim. She added that the whole world now knew what "the mountaineering world had known all along".

Women invited to traditional Basque meal for first time in four centuries THE TRADITIONAL lunch held in August for the past 411 years by the ancient brotherhood known as the 'Cofradía de San Roque' to mark the end of the annual festivities in the town of Llodio (Basque Country) saw a major change - women were allowed to attend for the very first time. The presence of women at this special meal, something that has been prohibited since the tradition started in 1599, was challenged legally as discriminatory by one of Llodio's residents two years ago, and the Ararteko (Defender of the Basque People) recently ruled in favour of the resident, ordering the ancient brotherhood to amend their constitution and allow women members. To date, only 14 women have opted to join the more than 400 male members of the brotherhood, and only one asked to come to the recent celebratory luncheon - Estíbaliz Gorostiaga, daughter of outlawed politician and ETA sympathiser Pablo Gorostiaga, who is currently serving a prison sentence for his political activities. Miss Gorostiaga sat where her father normally sits,

and where he is expected to sit again once he is released from prison, but she was not the only woman at the celebration. Sister Marina, a local nun, received a special invitation from the head of the brotherhood in recognition of the 38 years she has dedicated to charity work in the town.

Barça sells Ibrahimovic to AC Milan FOREIGN TOURISTS in Spain spent an average of 90 euros a day in July, claims the ministry of industry and commerce. They say visitors to Spain from abroad in July shelled out around 6.334 million euros in total – or 911 euros per holidaymaker – which represents a 3.7 per cent rise on June's figures. In fact, July was the third consecutive month that tourist spending increased. So far this year, tourists have spent 1.4 per cent more than they did in 2009, with a national average of 906 euros each, or 96 euros a day. Holidaymakers were most flash with their cash in Catalunya and the Canary Islands, followed by the Balearics and Andalucía. Those who parted with the most money were from the UK, spending 5,637 million euros – a rise of 8.8 per cent on last year – followed by the Germans, the French, and the Scandinavians. Hotels and package holidays are on the rise, whilst there was a decline in DIY travel such as rented self-catering apartments.

FC BARCELONA has sold forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic to AC Milan for 24 million euros. The former Juventus and Inter Milan striker will initially join the Italian club on a year-long loan before signing a permanent deal at the end of the season. "I'm delighted that everything has been resolved for the best, even if the situation was not easy," said Ibrahimovic. "Now I will return to Milan but for a different team" "Milan are one of the best teams in the world because of their team and their tradition. With (Alexandre) Pato and Ronaldinho we have a fantastic strikeforce, now it's down to us. "I think Milan's fans will have fun in the stadium with us three." Ibrahimovic was Barça´s big-news

signing a year ago, but had a disappointing first season in Spain and became surplus to requirements following the 40-million-euro acquisition of David Villa from Valencia. AC Milan has reached an agreement with Barcelona for the loan of the Swedish international, with the right to buy him for 24 million euros, which will be paid in three eight-million-euro payments over the next three seasons. Ibrahimovic thus becomes one of a small number of players to have played for Italy's three big teams. He spent two seasons at Juventus before going on to Inter for three years, winning the title in every season. He was sold to Barcelona a year ago for 46 million euros plus Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o, in a transfer that put the Swede's value at around 69 million euros.

The eviction process in Spain My tenant is not paying the rent, what can I do? I have been advised that now the eviction process is faster in Spain and I can get back the property in weeks, is this correct?

Dear reader, thank you for letter. Yes, as per the Laws 19/2009 and 13/2009, the last one applicable from the 4th of May 2010 there have been important changes of the Spanish Civil Jurisdiction Law, (1/2000- LEC) that affects the Eviction Process and claims for the rents due for the letting contracts. Some of the most relevant changes are:

1. The creation of OSI Office ( Oficina de Señalamiento Inmediato) has been approved. This office will set at the moment of the presentation of the claim a date for the court hearing, for these kind of cases it should be within 20 days. It is true that at the moment the OSI has not yet been implemented, but it is expected to be within the following months, and then,

the evictions will be incredibly faster than what they are now.

2. The verbal process, which is one of the fastest court processes, will be applicable for these kind of cases; claim for the rents (independently of the amount claimed for), termination of the letting contract, etc.

3. Following some other systems, like the one in UK, where solicitors serve the claim to the respondent, as per the new wording of the article 152 of the LEC, it would be possible in Spain to serve the claim to the respondent directly by the procurador of the applicant. This could save quite a lot of time in the process, as the procurador will be able to serve the claim just one day after its admission, faster than it is done now by the courts. 4. The new wording of the law also foresees the possibility of the execution of the Court order directly without the need to present a new execution claim, and without having to wait for 20 days from the date of the

notification of the Order to the respondent. Again this would save quite a lot of time to the applicantLandlord.

To sum up the new changes in the Law already in place will make the eviction and claim for rent processes faster and more efficient. Once the OSI is implemented and working it would reduce the length of these processes from months/years to weeks.

Should this be your case, or the case of someone you know, we will be more than pleased to assist you.

Are expat retirees happy? A recent survey carried out by NatWest bank suggests that nine out of ten expat retirees are happy with their new life in a different country and are likely to stay there. It also shows that fewer then one in five who have gone to live in Portugal, Spain or France, are considering returning home. Those that were employed in their new country before retiring are less likely to return as well. Last year, nearly 150,000 British Citizens left the country to live abroad, many of them after giving up work. The survey also indicates that there are now an estimated 900,000 expat pensioners, with nearly 300,000 in Australia, 115,000 in Spain and just

under 75,000 in France. The survey was carried out by the Centre For Future Studies among 1,300 retirees.

World's largest gold coin bought for €3.27 million A gold trading company in Madrid has reportedly snapped up the world's biggest gold coin, which weighs in at 100kg and was sold to them for 3.27 million euros. ORO direct, a Spanish precious metals trading firm placed a written bid for the coin which is from the estate of an insolvent investment firm and was being offered for sale at a rare auction in Vienna. The auction room was packed with more journalists than potential buyers and there were no counter offers. The auction was ordered by the administrator of Austrian Investment Group AvW Invest, which filed for insolvency in May after its owner and chief executive was arrested on suspicion of fraud, breach of trust and other charges. Only five of these coins have been produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and exclusive

owners include Queen Elizabeth, two unidentified investors in Dubai and another who is so reclusive even his or her residence is unknown. The coin is approximately 21 inches in diameter and abut 3cm thick with a purity of 99.999 percent, the purest type on the market. The coin was launched in 2007 and has an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.

Less finance for used cars in Spain It has been reported that 7 out of every 10 drivers pay cash to buy a used car due to the difficulty in obtaining credit in Spain. A whopping 67.7 percent of the Spanish paid cash for their used vehicle during the past year as a result of credit restrictions imposed by financial institutions. The White Paper was presented by the National Association of Motor

Vehicle Dealers, Repair and Parts. It also states that between the years 2007-2009 cash purchases for used cars grew by 16 percent, eventually leaving only 3 out of 10 buyers using credit facilities.

A new record on Oxford Street

Desigual, a Spanish retailer has agreed to pay £710 per square foot for the current Disney store, setting a new record on Oxford Street. This amount is the highest level of rent agreed for the street and easily beats the other previous record of £615. The West End does not appeared to have suffered during the economic downturn as retail sales have thrived due to a weak pound which attracted many tourists and the area is now considered to be one of the most valuable retail destinations in the world. During the month of July the West End’s retail sales rose by 1.3% year-on-year and showing a growth of 9.6% Number 360 Oxford Street is where Desigual will be laying roots

and the deal is worth over £1.5 million a year. Also on the street, construction continues on the new Park House which is the biggest development there since 1960. Once completed there will be 330.000sq of office and retail space on offer and this should be ready by 2012. Companies that are possibly interested at the moment include Forever 21, for its first Central London store, and also J Crew and lululemon, the yoga inspired clothing group.

ow we’re not talking about stripping off down to nada, perish the thought! Nude tones are a stunning way to show off your femininity and many of the top designers can’t get enough of these subtle tones and flesh coloured garmets. But be careful, not everyone can carry them off! The choice of shade has to be just right to match the colour of the skin, otherwise you could end up looking a little faded. Nude colours can look great on both tanned and lightly toned skin, so after this heatwave many of you are probably glowing so take full advantage, whilst you can. If you have extremely pale skin opt for a more rosy tone. When choosing a colour, think romance, shades of beige, pale pink and faded grey are ideal but don’t try to squeeze into something too tight as this could end up making you look too naked, ordinary RIGHT: Rare Nude Pink One Shoulder Flower Dress Available from and plain. www.rarefashion.co.uk The refined look works best, for instance, loose clothing, skirts and tops, BELOW LEFT: YOGO EGO Double Layer dresses, something that is very light and Jersey Wrap Neck Dress floaty. £35.00 Yogoego.com Nude trousers are not cool unless they are loose fitting. Don’t worry about matching the same colour exactly. As long as your keep within the same colour family and just layer up the pieces it will work well against your skin. Add a dash of colour To prevent the washed out look, add some colour to your outfit, maybe a pair of bright red shoes, an electric blue belt or some vibrant jewellery. Go for different textures within the whole outfit, for example if the dress is floaty, accessorise with a leather handbag, or add a sequinned scarf to the ensemble. Top the look off with some chunky jewellery, oversized, detailed or vintage is great and different coloured shoes with a classy handbag. Go get ‘em girls!

The Sueca Paella Festival starts on the 30th August and runs until 11th September. This annual contest sees local chefs battling to be the champion as they sweat over large pans of bubbling yellow rice on open fires. The paella contest is on the final day of Sueca’s festival and other activities include a horse parade and the obligatory fireworks. Sueca is surrounded by paddy fields and if you want rice, then there is no better place to be, paellas are abundant including chicken, rabbit, snails, mussels and other tasty morsels to tantalise your palate. The festival is in honour of the patron Saint Virgen de Sales and lasts for about two weeks. So if you want to taste the best paellas in the area get yourself down to Sueca, the paella contest begins at 12pm on the last day.

The Madrid International Fashion week is hosted twice a year at the IFEMA centre. It is the most important fashion exhibition in the country for professionals. Here you can see models showcasing the latest collections from up-andcoming designers and also from some of the well-known designers.

ould you like to wander among herds of antelopes, giraffes and rhinos? Explore the habitats of the aardvarks, hyenas and warthogs? Or stand back and marvel at the elephants, gorillas and leopards? Look no further as you can find them all in Bioparc, Valencia. Located at the Parque de Cabecera, this zoo covers an area of over 100,000m2 with almost 4,000 animals and is accessed via a walkway of 145m which crosses the old Turia riverbed. The animals live together in groups, as they would in nature, even the predators are nearby but are kept separated by barriers that cannot be seen by the visitors. The zoo has been recreated highlighting different African

ecosystems including the wet and dry savannahs and the island of Madagascar, future development projects include Asia and the subtropics. Walking around the zoo is a totally unique experience as there are no cages and the various species live as they would in the wild. All that separates the visitors from the animals are rivers, tunnels disguised as fallen trees, and rocks, which gives you a safari-like experience. The Madagascar Zone is home to the monkeys and lemurs and this is one of the first areas that you enter. Here the animals walk freely across your path and sit on the grass nearby. Some of the animals have come from Valencia Zoo and others have been donated by 15 different zoos in Spain, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and even Colchester Zoo in Essex. Put aside at least 4 hours for a visit and don't forget to pick up a map which guides you through the zoo. There are a few places to eat including Cafetería Kidepo which is open all day and serves breakfast, lunch, snacks and sandwiches or just sit and enjoy a coffee whilst watching the giraffes and lions wandering around. Alternatively you can hang on until lunch and indulge in a buffet menu at Restaurant Samburu. Open from 13.00 until 16.00. Adult price is around 14.50€ which is 3 courses including drink and bread. Childrens' menu is main dish and fruit/yoghurt drink and bread for just 8.50€ Weekends and holidays you can eat in Grill Ndoki which has burgers, wings, skewers etc and full menus start at around 7,50€. Bioparc opens at 10am and has various closing times, dependant on

what time of the year it is, tickets are 21,50 adult and 16,00 for children. Under 4's go free. There are various discounts and prices for groups. To find out more go to the website www.bioparcvalencia.es

t's time to kick off your shoes and settle down in the Hemisferic, with a large carton of popcorn and a soft drink. For those of you that have not yet been to this eye-shaped building, then let me explain. The Hemisfèric consists of a hall, a main entrance, a projection hall, and a Perimeter Ring. In the hall you can find the main services open to the public (ticket offices, cafeteria, shop, information desk, booking counter, etc.); there is also a central space for temporary exhibitions. The projection hall, which can hold over 300 people, has a concave screen with a surface area of 900 square metres and a diameter of 24 metres. The inner area includes the "Carl Sagan" Perimeter Ring which was named in honour of the great American communicator. This space is devoted to the holding of events of all kinds. It is an oval or elliptic area that surrounds the dome of the projection hall and is protected by the large roof of the building. A pond of 24,000 square metres surrounds the whole of this structure. Now the IMAX 3D cinema normally has between 5 and 7 shows on display and it’s a great experience for not just the adults but the kids as well. Once in the cinema you lay on the floor horizontally and view the screen above you. Exciting stuff. Showing this month is ‘Arabia.’ You can explore the heart of this exotic land and experience its mysticism. During the desert crossing, you will ride the dunes on a camel, dive into the treasures of the Red Sea, and explore the ruins of a stunning lost city. "Arabia" tells the story of a young Arab brought up in Chicago who decides to return to the homeland of his parents. On his journey, he discovers

MAGIC JOURNEY TO AFRICA

Produced by Orbita Max, the film tells the store of Jana who, moved by her encounter with a bushman boy that she meets in the streets of Barcelona, sets off on an imaginary journey through the Namibian desert accompanied by her trusty winged horse. Jana searches for answers to a ream of

questions that arise from her encounters with other children, animals and natural phenomena. She discovers the difficult living conditions of the desert-dwellers and how they manage to get by. The film combines real footage, shot mostly in the deserts and savannahs of Africa, with computer-generated images to create a unique audiovisual experience. The Calle Menor at the Science Museum is also holding a free photography exhibition on the making of this film in the natural

that is inheriting an extraordinary culture. Through these IMAX images, the audience will discover the lost city of Madain Saleh and explore its ancient tombs, travel with a caravan of camels along the spice route and enjoy the warmth of a Bedouin tent. Viewers will also travel to the Islamic Golden Age, where science and Arab erudition blossomed; they will survive a desert sandstorm; they can dive the coral reefs of the Red Sea and discover ancient shipwrecks. They will even have the unique opportunity to join the Hajj pilgrimage which each year brings more than 3 million Muslims to the holy city of Mecca where they will reaffirm their faith.

GOOGLE KEEPING BUSY

T

he techy guys at Google are keeping very busy this month as they have announced that users of Gmail will now be able to call telephones directly from their email, which basically puts them in competition with Skype. Great news if you’re in the US and Canada as Google have promised free calls for the rest of this year, other countries will get charged a low rate from as low as 2 cents per minute. According to analysts, the service is likely to be a bigger competitive threat to companies like Skype, rathern than the traditional telephone companies. The service, according to Google, works like a normal phone in that a user could click on the ‘call phone’ option in their chat buddy list in Gmail, type in the number or enter a contact’s name. You can top up your credit using a credit card. Recently, Google also launched its Priority Inbox, which splits your Gmail into three sections: important messages, starred messages and everything else. The system automatically learns which messages are important to you and places them at the top of your email queue. Don’t ask me how it works, but if it stops all of these spammers with rich dead relatives, wanting to share their fortune with you, then I’m all for it.

Note that mimbre is used to translate basket, cane and wicker. Be careful when translating the word carpet into Spanish. The dictionary will often give you two choices – alfombra and moqueta. Una alfombra is what we would normally call a rug and la moqueta refers to the kind of carpet or floor covering that is fitted from wall to wall. The word alfombra can also be used to refer to a mat, although the diminutive alfombrilla is usually used. A bath mat, for example is una alfombrilla de baño. The word mat is often translated as estera, with the diminutive esterilla being used to refer to the kind of mat you might use for yoga or pilates. Be careful not to use alfombrilla or esterilla for the kind of mats you put on the table. The correct word for a table mat is either un mantel individual or un salvamanteles.

hen undertaking an interior design project, there are three factors to determine the appearance and suitability of fabrics for interior use. They are weave, fibre content and pattern. Fabrics are normally either man-made or natural. Natural fabrics include cotton, linen, wool and silk. Silk has always been classed as luxurious but under direct sunlight and heat it does not last very long and it does require more care than most other fabrics. Modern interiors do feature a reasonable amount of wool fabric due to it's strength and beautiful, soft texture. Cotton and linen, which are vegetable fibres are also both pliable and durable but are not as strong as wool. To make an interior more interesting add fabrics in various colours and textures, cushions, throws and curtains are very reasonable and can be renewed should you get bored with a colour scheme. When investing in a sofa or chair, make your choice carefully. Take into account the fabric as these items are major investments, a good choice is a solid neutral fabric.

DEALING WITH THE DUST

Dust settles on upholstered furniture just as on hard surfaces, and should be removed regularly, about once a month, depending on environment and use, with vacuum cleaner attachments. A brush will remove some dust if you do not have a vacuum, but will also scatter dust around. Here’s a homemade preparation to help clean your upholstery. Combine 1/4 cup liquid dish detergent or clothes detergent and 1 cup warm water. With a hand mixer, whip until dry suds form (the suds will look like whipped cream). Test upholstery in an unnoticeable area by applying dry suds with a cloth or soft brush and lightly scrubbing. Allow to dry.

It is less anything, anywhere that requires hot water. It can be used for industrial processes, house expensive but it is less efficient as well, especially in the wintertime (because it reflects heating systems and hot water for personal use, more of the radiation, its insulation is not very which is the most common application. good and it loses a lot of heat.).

Vacuum tube collectors for hot water

So if you want to use the house principally in summer, the flat collectors are a good alternative, because they are cheaper.

collectors. We normally use vacuum tube collectors with heat pipe technology. This type of collector is very efficient and easy to install. They have no maintenance and as the connection between the heat pipe and the absorber is “dry”, the individual tubes can be exchanged without emptying the entire system of its fluid. Using this technology, we get a very efficient system, which is quite simple, robust and easy to maintain. For more information, give me a call 96 5587742 or send me a mail to: info@kw-solar.es.

HOME & GARDEN

The heat is on! With the cold weather around the corner, it maybe time to start thinking about how you are going to heat your home if your not fortunate enough to have central heating Advice Tips for using your firewood. The ancient tradition of using wood for heating is now a pleasure and not just a necessity. Consequently, some knowledge of the treatment, management and use of firewood has been lost. Below are some tips to help you get the best from your firewood. 1. Purchase your firewood during the months of June/July if possible. Prices are lower and the quality of the wood can be controlled. The wood contains less moisture during the summer months and access to fields is possible at all times. 2. By informing Parra Firewood of the precise dimensions of your fireplace or stove, the firewood can be cut to exact specifications. The efficiency of the fire is closely linked to the correct size of wood. All sizes are available as the logs are cut to order. Should any delivery contain logs that are too big,

Parra Firewood will send an operator to cut the wood to the correct size. 3. The firewood should be stored outside. Storage in a house or garage will keep the wood dry, but will reduce the life of the wood. Cover the stack with plastic during heavy and persistent rain. This will allow any unused wood to remain viable for the next year. 4. Do not plan to use all of the wood in one year. Fires burn more efficiently when old and new wood are mixed. This strategy also eliminates any shortfall during periods of persistent rain. 5. For daily use during the winter, we advise ordering 4000 – 5000 kg of wood or 8000 Kg in cold locations For weekend and occasional use, we advise ordering 2000 2500 kg of wood. By ordering a greater quantity of wood, the unit price per kilo will be lower, as transport costs are reduced. 6. Parra Firewood is able to offer a service of delivery and stacking at your home, for your convenience. 7. With decades of experience, Parra Firewood is at your disposal to answer any queries and is

happy to advise you on the best method of enjoying a warm home.

Logging & Clearing Logging and clearing fields and plantations Parra Firewood helps farmers with the removal of trees, shredding any small branches and clearing fields. Parra Firewood is able to remove trees from gardens and difficult locations. The company also obtains wood from pruning trees and the removal of orchards and other agricultural plantations, eg oranges, olives, holm oak, mesquite….. Each tree that is removed is replaced by another. This ensures that carbon dioxide, released when the wood is burned, will be captured by the new trees. Parra Firewood helps farmers in the management of sustainable natural resources.

Production, felling and cutting. Trees used in the production of firewood are those that have reached the end of their productive lives. Following the removal and shredding of branches with a diameter of less than 10cm., the trees are cut according to

customers’ specifications.

Transport and distribution. Firewood is taken from the fields directly to the customer or stored for later distribution. This allows Parra Firewood to supply customers 365 days a year. Firewood is delivered by a fleet of trucks, of various tonnages. Parra Firewood delivers to all areas of Valencia, Murcia and Albacete, whether countryside, town or city.

Sizes, types and characteristics Parra Firewood is able to supply many different types of wood. The most common types are from fruit trees. (Orange, almond and olive). These account for 80% of our stores. The rest is made up of less well used varieties such as Kermes Oak, Carob, and Oak together with less common varieties such as Eucalyptus, Lemon and Vine.

Who is insured to drive my car? Happy 45th anniversary to the Ford Transit I am asked this question so many times, especially now in the summer with family and friends visiting. The quick and easy answer is to say, anybody, because in Spain, the insurance cover is on the vehicle, not with the person, as in the UK. Having given the quick and easy answer, that does not mean that everybody is insured. This depends on the criteria of each insurance company. Let’s just stop and consider the different groups of people looking for insurance. First of all there’s Johnny Turbo who will buy anything that goes from zero to a hundred in four seconds flat, and passed his test two months ago!! Well insurance companies are certainly not falling over themselves to insure this age group, premiums are very high and most companies won’t even accept them. The magic figure for drivers here in Spain is 25, until then they will be consiered by insurance companies as ‘ young drivers.’ Once the ripe old age of 25 has been reached, the most companies will insure you. It is then safe to assume that everybody

is insured by your policy? I don’t know, you’ll have to look at your policy. Some policies are for the thirty plus, others are for the over forties. Some insurance companies like to target the retired ex-pat community here in Spain, a safe bet, two or three airport runs a year and the weekly shopping run to the supermarket. Then there are those who use their car only when they come out on holiday. So you are in the ‘safe’ category, and enjoying retirement here in Spain. What do you look for in a car insurance policy? Is it the good services of your agent, or the premium or maybe because it is in English, or because you get to keep your protected bonus? Whatever the reason, if you are not sure if you have the right policy for your specific needs, or you think you are paying too much give me a ring at the brokerage and I’ll be glad to answer your questions. Try not to use your insurance, drive safely!! Supplied by Franco Valori your English speaking Insurance Broker from Hermanoschorro (see our advert below)

T

he most successful van in Britain has reached a milestone 45 years and whether you love it or hate it, the Ford Transit is still going strong. Back in 1965 there were 78 different types of Transit available and you could pick up a Mkl model for just ÂŁ542, which equates to about ÂŁ7,000 in today's money. Today there are approximately 600 different versions of the Transit available and a new model currently starts at around ÂŁ17,155. Ford surveyed owners as part of the 45th anniversary celebrations to find out what makes them tick and some of the results were quite surprising.

World's largest ever speeding fine The world's largest ever speeding fine has been handed out to a 37-year-old Swedish man. Police pulled over the driver who was seen travelling at two and half times the speed limit in his ÂŁ140,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS. The limit on Switzerland's motorways is 120km/h (74.5mph) but the Swedish driver was caught at 186mph, which is reportedly the fastest anyone has ever been clocked

It seems that white is the most popular colour for Transits but blue and silver are coming up close behind. A whopping 71 per cent of Transit drivers consider themselves to be careful and considerate behind the wheel (I must get stuck behind the other 29 per cent !). A white van man's favourite foods are curries and roast dinners and 3% of Transit owners have had sex in their van. Also legend has it that 95 percent of all robberies that involved a getaway vehicle in the 70s featured a Transit. So here’s to another 45 years!

for speeding in Switzerland. The Swiss calculate speeding fines using a formula taking earnings into account, which left the man facing the highest possible penalty of 300 days worth of ÂŁ2,166 daily fines - ÂŁ650,000 in total. He had a good excuse though - he claimed that the car had just been fitted with a new speedometer, which was faulty!
