We called in to collect cats Fluffy and Raf in the Alicante region of Spain. Their owner Helen moved to Cheltenham in January, and her cats have been looked after by Lesley and Mick at their little cattery near Onil in the meantime. Lesley loves animals, and cats are her hobby. She also has chickens, doves and a dog!
Last night we stayed at a very Spanish motel on the edge of the A3 Valencia–Madrid road, where there was a warm welcome for us. We watched a lively football match on TV between Madrid and Barcelona and enjoyed a very Valencian evening meal, surrounded entirely by locals, all enjoying their Sunday evening — despite the eight lanes of traffic outside, the nearby railway line and the airport just a mile or so away!
