The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Calle Las Vinas

Guardamar has two new enterprises - both in Calle Las Vinas which is not far from the Mercadona.

The Flavour Shop is open for a wide range of flavoured teas and coffees. A pleasant place, the lady serving hails from the USA - the State of Florida.

Also in the same street is a Bulgarian grocers - Danubio - OK if you want a Bulgarian newspaper or bottle of wine. Not been in myself - not being a reader of Bulgarian newspapers. On our arrival in this part of Spain we were amazed to find so many people of Russian origin - not a race of people one would be expecting to inhabit the Costa Blanca in great numbers. Guess that the world is a far more mobile place these days especially after the fall of the Soviet era.

Let's hope these places succeed and do not join the list of other enterprises that have quickly failed in this seaside town.

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
