There has definitely been a change in the weather, not a day has passed without rain, it looks as if summer lasted just over two weeks, it’s an absolute bummer, I love some heat. I think my first few years here spoiled me, but it’s still better weather than back in the UK, I’ll just have to hope that winter is as short!

We have had a naughty week, it was our eleventh Wedding anniversary on Sunday, so we went out for lunch, to Terrasole Restaurante in Marinilla, it was our first visit there, a place we would consider for Special Occasions, my pension doesn´t stretch far enough to make it a regular haunt.

However we were both glad we went, it is an Italian / Mediterranean menu, pricey but worth every peso, these were our Main courses

the descriptions of each course would take half a page, suffice it to say it was delicious, and the Staff both knowledgeable and attentive. We both decided that we would renew our “Contract” for another year, just so that we can return!

Then yesterday, we had to go to the Registrar in Town before lunch, I also had a Dental appointment after, so decided to have lunch in town. Again a new Restaurant for us, El Portrero,

We only had menu of the day, but it was excellent value for the money, and nicely presented, which for menu of the day can be hit and miss.

After lunch, we headed back to the car, where I grabbed my toothbrush, and headed into the medical center, where I gave them a scrub before my appointment.

The Town Hall has decided to upgrade one of the rural roads near us, from dirt to concrete, not ours unfortunately, but it does mean that the access road for many is closed for five months, and all the traffic has to pass us. The Residents affected are being considerate, which is more than can be said for the Contractors, who are driving past in their Dumpers as if they are partaking in Formula One. The problem not only causes dust, but the vibration from these heave vehicles is causing damage.

Our entry Canopy, has tiles moving as a result

If not dealt with, they run the risk of falling on a passing Pedestrian, or worse still on top of the car, so this morning the ladders came out, and I have pushed them all back in line,

I’m sure it wont be the last time I have to do this, and may well speak with the Authorities for all the good it will do.

Finally for today, yesterday, I got the ball rolling, having rounded up all the documents I need, and applied for Colombian Nationality, now we wait and see, if the documents are acceptable, and if the Government will approve or deny the application. I anticipate that it will take months rather than weeks, so don’t hold your breath.
