Meanwhile, over in the thriving metropolis of Mólvizar, the village stray dog was reported to have stood up, yawned twice, stretched before lying back down again and going back to sleep – the locals are exhausted by all this activity.
The other piece of news – less riveting but of importance, nevertheless – is that the Plataforma ‘Queremos Plaza en la Huerta,’ (We-Want-a-Square-in-the-Vegetable-Garden, Movement) has handed in a 600-signature demand to the Town Hall.
The area that they are talking about is the central green plot of land called El Huerto del Estanco, which they would like to see turned into a village square, with underground parking, rather than a block of flats or a factory for inflatable, rubber-ducks for left-handed Buddhist monks.
Now, when you consider the total population of Molvízar, (2,364 and a half), 600 people is a good section of the village, so this is not a demand to be taken lightly.
The problem began when the PP governing party announced that they wanted to build blocks of flats on it: 750 flats on 1,250 sq/m; bless them.
