What’s this about?
This is Peter and Maureen Scargill's Spanish website. We live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarity, that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

We've had a home in Spain for more than 14 years and it is now our permanent base though we retain a small home in the UK.

A Banking Friday

Well, this was never going to be easy. Last week we opened an account with CaixaBank in Spain – as the performance of our existing bank had been less than stellar.  We filled in all the forms, got the App and were promised by the one English-speaking member of staff (after waiting for half the morning) that our cards would be ready on Tuesday.


Of course we went in on Tuesday and they WEREN’T ready. She offered to send an email when they were in. Maureen then got a TEXT to say the cards were in – as we’re also collecting for friends we really needed her to be there. Yesterday we popped by the bank – no sign of her and we decided to make an early start this morning.

Not there. We popped into one of the local cafes for cafe-con-leche – a lovely little place one of who’s specialities is pastry effigies of Bob Spongepants!

Bob Spongepants On our return – our contact at the bank was still not there – so another week goes by – we’ll try again on Monday. Meanwhile seems like a lovely day for the lake.
