I've no money for a new T-shirt

The high temperatures and the drop in the wind have drawn thousands onto the beaches in the province. It's looks just like August,  when the beaches are so full you can hardly find a place to put your towel.


Unfortunately for the shops though, the good weather hasn't enticed people into buying  summer clothes. The shopkeepers are blaming the economic crisis for a drop of between 30 and 40% in sales. Even  "rebajas", which have started a couple of months early, are failing to get the money out of people's pockets. 

It seems that everyone is being cautious about what they spend. The Spaniards are worried about what will happen in the months to come and the English have less money anyway because of the strength of the Euro.  Even the promised tax windfall of 400 euros per worker (200€ in July and then 33€ per month until January) and the extension of mortgages by two years is not motivating people.

So, like I said before, it's lean times all round.
