A strange way to meet your neighbours - at the Pabellon Bernardo Ruiz just outside of Orihuela.
It obviously was the time for bigastrenses of our age to receive their first dose of Covid vaccine. And so we gathered inside the Sports Hall as one by one we were stabbed in the arm.

The operation was very slick and well organised. The only minor issue was finding somewhere to park the car.
