Coast versus Campo a personal account

Hi We are Joan and Trevor Moorhouse and spend our time between our villa on the coast Nr. Torrevieja and our Cortijo in the Campo, Near Huescar Andalucia. We love both our homes, but would like to share with you how our lives change depending on which home we are in. Have a look at the article I wrote recently on 'eyeinspain' ' from ruin to reformation in Andalucia'.

Its Wednesday and auction day.
24 March 2010

It's a cloudy day here on the Coast, but not to worry, it's auction day.  I don't mean house auctions, its the auction where people take lots of their precious articles they religiously packed when they left England, then on arrival in Spain, find they don't now fit into their new surroundings.

Bargains can be bought and sold, all for just a small commission of 50cents. We have bought leather armchairs for 6 euros, pictures, rugs, etc, and if they don't fit here they get hauled down to our country house in Andalucia.   If you see a Scenic filled to the roof with goods heading down the Caravaca 330, it will most certainly be us.  We have had another good day!  Anyway must go now, will let you know later what we bought.
