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.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

Life Goes on in Galera

La MimbreraAnother cracking night out with friends last night in Orce – though I can’t say the food was the best I’ve ever had.

Six of us went to La Mimbrera restaurant in Orce – just off the main square and enjoyed Abadia Del Roble and Finca Besaya Rioja in somewhat large quantities.

OrceMeanwhile outside, the town square was full of people of all ages having a great time in the rather warm late-evening weather.

I think we all thought the place was rather pleasant but the food average which could account for the somewhat empty main restaurant area (below)

I had a plate of Iberica ham and some other meats and it was just that – absolutely nothing else and no imagination put into it.

Thankfully I received a contribution of roasted green peppers from others. 

A fine night, lots of laughs… and plenty of other places to try in Orce.  Today a short trip to the airport as Maureen is off home to look after property over in the UK and to visit friends and relatives.

Meanwhile my first job is to find out why the power went off last night and why my screwdriver glows when I touch the equipment on my desk!!!
