Well, it definitely feels like the summer season is drawing to a close now. It's getting darker earlier and it's been slightly cooler over the past week (still hot though!).

Quite a relief for most us that live here permanently. For me the summer months are just too hot. I'm not sure how people coped before the days of air con!

It also means that most businesses, that don't rely on tourism, will kick in again. So many close down for the whole of August.

Anyway, enjoy this week's articles and remember to keep sending us your stories to publish too. Tell us about where you live or plan to live, etc. We and all our readers want to hear from you.

Have a great week.

Un saludo
