Little Britain

Apparently we have an English couple running the bar at the Pedrera who I understand are trying to charge English prices and are serving English measures of spirits.

Perhaps we ought to consider other things we could do to Anglicise the area.

The first step would be to change the name from Urb. Villas Andrea to Andrea Housing Estate. Then we could change the names of the roads, get rid of the Spanish Calle bit and call them England Street, German Road etc. and in the case of Escocia - Scotland Cul de Sac which would be very appropriate considering the state it is in at the moment. Of course we would insist that people drive on the left whilst they were in the area and would have a border patrol where passports would be shown.

Later we could organise a car boot sale each Sunday on one of the pieces of unused land and perhaps open a fish and chip shop on one of the others.

There would be a downside though. For example, we would need to pay English council tax rates and have umpteen wheelie bins outside each house with fines for putting rubbish in the wrong bin. Hordes of teenagers would hang around on street corners each night hurling abuse at us. I'm sure you can think of many other equally undesirable consequences.

On second thoughts, perhaps we ought to leave it as it is a part of a lovely Spanish village. After all that is the reason we came to live here isn't it?
