Tales of the Lecrin Valley

A personal view of life in an andalusian village.

Carmen in our summer office

Carmen in our summer office

I haven´t told you, but we had a special offer from Vodafone which gave us all sorts of wizbangs: dongles, SIM card fitted fixed fones, repeaters, free this and that and things I don´t understand but nod wisely when the rep talks about them.  But all to no avail.  The office has 60cm thick packed earth walls, with a fair amount of moisture content, which is more effective than a super de-luxe Faraday cage.  (look it up!)  Consequently, any mobile phone conversations have to be taken outside.  Lovely in summer but a bit of a pain when it is raining.  But it has a plus.  When Carmen is outside, she can walk up and down and swing her arms about in true Spanish fashion, so I don´t have to duck and dive, dodge and weave, around the office.  The photo shows her in full stride and about to deliver a left cross to whoever is on the other end of the phone.
