How do they find out where all the Brits live?

They must have a wonderful map of the campo with all Brit houses marked.

We just answer the gate intercom in Spanish now and they go away!

My town is totally Spanish and the JW´s come around to all of the houses on a Sunday morning several times a year so here they are not aiming for Brits.

Yeah, I've often wondered about the window bars. I understand that they add security of course, but I think I'd be seriously concerned about them impeding an escape in case of fire. I realise that most Spanish homes have far less soft furnishings, carpets etc than UK homes, but surely the danger is still there. Also, all of the bars I've seen appear to be cemented into place, not even hinged and secured with a lock. I must admit, I'd be really uncomfortable if my property had these.
