So on New Year's Day we moved into our Monsalve Apartment (home for the next two months) where we found a few challenges (not unexpected when doing a vacation rental... but we had arranged beforehand to have dinner around the corner at a favorite we went to many times last spring, CASA PUERTA.
We had a lovely dinner in a very crowded restaurant. It is Christmas week still- until Epiphany on January 6th. On the 5th it is Three Kings Day- another gift giving day for children - so this is a big deal here with a long parade around the city and candy thrown to the kids and King Cakes sold on the street and at El Corte Inglés.
We had to go out the next day to buy a new shower curtain rod as the one in the main bath here had lost it's tension and kept falling down (a serious inconvenience) so we managed to go to El Corte to get a new one - big win for the farangs who didn't even know the words for such an item until google helped us. LOL
an adventure in every moment these days... on to photos-
the street we rented on for the holiday week- tough for larger vehicles to maneuver through- LOL
The next day we spent continuing to search for places for our stuff - bought the shower curtain rod a mentioned above- went to dinner next door to our former school - a really lovely meal and a nice walk home.
