We hope you are well and looking forward to seeing family, friends and arranging your next trip over to Spain when lockdown is over.
The good news from Spain is that the strict lockdown rules that were introduced early on are now showing positive results and you can now get out within set times for a coffee or a cool drink. We have been in lockdown here in Spain from the 17th March and the fact that you can now have the freedom to sit in a plaza is a thankful pastime that we always took for granted before Covid19. The normal things that we did before may have changed but in some cases for the best as we all now realise that life is for living and enjoying instead of striving for material possessions.
