Giving credit where credit’s due

THEY say sorry seems to be the hardest word but ‘thank you’ is right up there with it, as is giving credit where credit’s due. Our entire financial system today is built on credit and I think we’re all aware that we can’t stroll into a bank and demand our…

Marbella’s lost generation

MARBELLA has some amazing international schools, which has made it the ideal place for families of all nationalities to come and settle here. We are also lucky to have a town hall that welcomes us and does its best to cater to our international community as well as their everyday…

Bueno, bonito and barato

WHEN I was about 12 we had to draw and colour the map of Africa. Although I enjoyed the art aspect of the assignment I clearly remember my lack of general interest, as I’d never be going there.I couldn’t have been more wrong. When trying to get my first work…

Do not miss the Easter hat parade!

CHRISTIANITY commemorates Easter on the same dates worldwide, but in Spain it’s for a longer period of time than most and is more religious, particularly in Andalucia, renowned for its traditional Easter celebrations.

Are we living the Tower Of Babel story?

So many what ifs

WHAT if we took a little more pride in the city we call home? What if we complained a little less and did a little more? What if we opened our homes to Spanish exchange students, but right here in Marbella? Until quite recently English wasn’t taught in the public…

Hello, what’s up with Wassap?

I WAS watching the stand-up comic Kevin Hart the other day and he was joking about how important it is for him to reply to his wife’s ‘wassaps’ immediately as otherwise she’d have an entire conversation on her own, inventing the reasons, whys and wherefores for his lack of response.…

Marbella Moments: Valentine’s Story

VALENTINA arrived at Triple A on February 14 2016 in a plastic bag found in the rubbish, together with four other puppies who were already dead. No more than six days old, she survived only thanks to Triple A volunteers fostering her and nursing her back to health. When I…

Counting our blessings and our sevens

As we grow up we change, although we would swear otherwise when young. Childhood seems to last forever, but youth is ephemeral and the wisdom of years, as they say, only comes with the time it takes, years. How could we imagine, appreciate or understand the way our elders felt…

The festive season can be the caring season as the Costa dresses up for charity

OVER the coming festive weeks, not only can we expect some glamorous galas and glitzy gowns but also a host of charity events that will blow your mind. Thanks to event organisers like Emma P Lopez of EventEmmalaga and Asesores de Comunicación, the press office run by the Spanish journalist…
