Here is a farewell to Puerto Ancha from Clee & Fabio and HELLO to LPA in la Lota Plaza

”2019 has landed and has brought many new and exciting challenges.
We close our doors in the plaza de la laguna on January 20th and we will reopen the start of March in the plaza de la lota no. 10 with a new place more surprising and a lot of new dishes.
We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for continuous support, follow-up and kind words over the years. We both hope to open our new doors and share many new memories together in the coming years. Cliodhna and fabio

I found this amusing.

Without getting too 'religious' about this, here is a problem about Satan taking a selfie ... And enjoying it.... In Spain....

I used to see La Belle de Cadix on the Guadiana from my old house. Awesome spectacle but seldom saw anyone on it.

Many have heard that in WW2 there was an amazing military operation (Operation Mincemeat).

They took a dead body, in a submarine from Holy Loch, Scotland.

They created a false identify ( William Martin) and in his bag were private documents including a love letter to his fiance, Pam, amongst other things. This was to create a complete identity and persona. They dressed him as a Royal Marine.

Also in his bag were secret documents about the allied plans to invade the Balkans. All faked.

The Nazis fell for it and diverted forces there.

This lead to us invading and securing Scicily.

So why this post on the Ayamonte forum??

I just found out in a documentary, that the body washed up in..... The beach of.... Huelva!!

Very interesting

Spanish news in English.

Sad to hear that the West Nile virus was in Seville and now also in Cadiz.

But a good source of national info

And PT/Algarve news here...
