We went down yesterday to the local post office in Bigastro to post my digital camera to the winning bidder. Unfortunately the package was too heavy to post in Bigastro. Antonio, the Postman told us we needed to go to Orihuela to the main post office where they could deal with it.
When we got there we had to conduct the whole transaction in Spanish and we managed very well. It would have been better if I had thought about what to say when we arrived at the counter rather than just plonk the parcel on the counter but that will come. "Puedo enviar este a Inglaterra" would have been better than stunned silence.
Still we are making progress and that is all that matters.
