Autovía 2013? (Part II)

It was in 2005 when the then Minister for Public Works, Magdelena Álvarez, announced that the A-7 coastal autovía would open in 2008. We could go back 20 years, if we wanted to retrace the first steps of the autovía, but let’s keep things within recent memory.

Has anyone heard? Yes, that’s right, I became a dad on 11/11/09, to Jack, who weighed in at 6lb 9oz, with mother and baby both in the best of health.

New Boulevard in P-4

Hey, we’ve got a new boulevard, sort of thing. It runs down side of the river in the P-4. I’m not sure how far it goes down, but it looks as if it runs all the way down to the tennis courts, near the main road.

Silly Suggestion?

There are few times that our dear politicians – and our local ones are no exception – get together and agree on something. When they do, it normally entails pay rises for themselves.
