After glorious weather during the first 3 weeks of April it has turned rather damp for Semana Santa . This morning, a watery sun appeared and so Digby took the opportunity to photograph the lush countryside which is still ablaze with wild flowers.
We did not go to any of the processions in Loja as we saw them last year in much better weather and we had to be on red alert in case any prospective buyers came to view our property. In fact, on Thursday evening, a family from Barcelona, who viewed our house two weeks ago, turned up unannounced for a second viewing. It was pouring with rain but they still loved the property.Their only problem is that they cannot complete a purchase until September when the sale of their flat in Barcelona goes through. They will be in touch next week. See www.countryhouseforsale.wordpress.com.
Some friends have kindly lent us a set of DVDs of the Spanish TV drama series “Lorca, Muerte de un Poeta”. This is a wonderful production and compelling viewing. The acting and filming are superb and it is very evocative of the period. It is particularly interesting for us because it is mostly set in the city and countryside of Granada. I would recommend watching it in Spanish with English subtitles.
