Just a couple of introductory points today.

Firstly, we've got an important announcement that we're making next week. It concerns the future of the newsletter so you'll want to read it!

Secondly, the 50% discount offer on Lisa's ace ebook on renting out your property in Spain is finishing this Thursday. So make sure you hurry before the price goes up. Only a couple of days left at the super low price.  Get Lisa's ebook today.

By the way, some people told us about the issue with the PayPal screen coming up in Spanish. We have now (more-or-less) fixed that so you should see it in English. If you have any other issues with the ebook please let me know.

OK, I said a couple of points but I also wanted to mention that we've put up the beginnings of our Spain webcams directory. It's got a funky user-interface. Let me know what you think. We've got loads of webcams to add so it should be really good when it's finished.

Without any further ado let's move on with this week's articles.

Remember that you can also submit your own articles for publication in the newsletter and on the website.

The Absence Of Women In Spanish Bars
You don't notice it so much on the coasts but certainly in the bars in the villages you don't seem to see any women in them. Are they not allowed in or is it just not the done thing?
