What possesses anyone to buy a house on the Internet, on top of a mountain, with only an upside down wheelbarrow for company?
Listen to the whole story on itunes podcast: Speaking of Spain, and immerse yourself deep inside the heart of Andalusia.....
This episode is simply an introduction to the series and to give an idea of what future podcasts will - in theory at least - contain:
* 1. Las Noticias: (News)
* 2. Lessons from a Lapsed Linguist: (Language tricks and tips)
* 3 Integration issues: (The law and our status)
* 4 Cultural Corner: (Fiestas, food and flavours)
* 5 Other Insights: (The Illuminating Immigrant Interview)
So, will it be a show about Coastal life and an opportunity to rent a rural villa with pool that sleeps 6 ? On the contrary, I shan't be peddling the coastal or tourist image of Spain, something that has been - and continues to be - promoted to the point of nausea. Instead, I shall be probing from just inside the interior, from the very geographical centre of Andaluisa. Don't expect tidal forcasts, blue flag reports or the state of the autovias towards Matalscanas on a popular puente weekend. Dont expect airport baggage handling updates, or or exposes on mis-treated donkeys. Instead, expect only the unexpected.
