Tales of the Lecrin Valley

A personal view of life in an andalusian village.

How is it that with the supposed crisis there are still optimists who are opening businesses? I am glad they are as we had a great night out last week in a newly opened restaurant, Cortijo la Matanza, in the fields between La Zubia and Granada.

The menu was a welcome change from the normal rustic fare offered by most restaurants and the balmy night made the four-hour meal a real pleasure. With my nephew in from UK and the numerous members of Carmen´s family down from Asturias the whole evening/night (we left at two in the morning) was a delight with hoots of laughter rending the darkness. I hope many more businesses start up in the near future as this is exactly what people need to cheer them up at the moment.
