Fuengirola elections

We have our local elections coming up soon and in the run-up, the Town Hall has increased in social media presence by creating twitter and facebook accounts.

Now if like me you are happy with the current party in Fuengirola, make sure to vote for the PP and support our Mayoress ESPERANZA OÑA.

Not saying she’s perfect (which politician is?), but I think she is doing a good job for this town, and the PSOE (socialists) seem to be a bunch of (insert explicative). You only have to watch the debates on the Fuengirola TV to see the sort of calibre of people they are.

Any support the PP and let’s see Fuengirola Advanza!

Can’t argue with that, heel I just moved here! I was a bit put off when Fuengirola was not put on the list, but someone left a comment saying:

Especially since Fuengirola covers 10.2km and as 2006 has 62,000 inhabitants. Benalmadena covers 27km and has a population of 50,000 inhabitants. Anyway here the article.s

Hello world wide web!

Just recently made the BIG MOVE abroad from London to the sunny Costa del Sol. More specifically a town called Fuengirola. Been here before on holiday and I thought now was the time to make the move.
Anyway got me a nice little property at a good rent, not too easy to find at this time of year, with the holiday crowd around. Quite surprised really, with all the Doom and Gloom in the papers I would of thought finding a rental would be easy. Fuck me was I wrong. Everything seems to be rented out, but I found a nice little agency on the seafront that managed to find me a good property at 550€ a month (about 450 sterling) for a nice 5 year contract.
