“Why Villanueva De La Concepción? I’ve stepped back in time to when dad was a lad:- I can’t smell the Hovis baking, but I think I know nearly everyone. I can park almost anywhere I like, and leave it unlocked… A good friend hasn’t locked his front door for the last 10 years, and now can’t find his key… I went in a shop once, and Nicolas, the owner, chased me up the street, as I’d left the Serrano ham on the counter. I have owed the man in the Moto shop 10 Euros since last year… Visitors keep coming back to check us out. My daughter-in-law, and several others, keep in touch with what’s going on in “Concepcion” through Face Book. Tom, the owner of Xebar, our “English bar”, keeps them regularly informed… Last week we had our feria: it started with rock night and free beer in the bottom square. I got caught up in a parade: children wearing satirical papier-mache heads: I recognised the mayor among other local celebrities. Friday night saw the local flamenco classes performing, followed by an exceptional performance by a professional troupe. Earlier in the day the Ruta De Tapas: 13 bars and 13 tapas… As a student in the 60’s we did the King Street Run, which was a pint in all 8 pubs, and a commemorative tie for those who completed the Run. There were two bull fights: the real and the silly: the latter when our local frustrated toreadors dress up and “fight” little bulls; other local heroes rush into the arena, as stretcher bearers, or as priests to deliver the last rites… In the winter our mayor laid on rock bands, live music, in our bars… What else? There are several great places to eat and drink, including Rincon De La Villa and Bar Torfa. Our local mountain, El Torcal, is from another planet with its limestone sculptures. Antequera, our nearest big town, the safest place in Andalucia, is a heritage centre, that hosts a free Blues Festival in July: late night atmospheric blues music high above the town in Plaza Santa Maria. Our nearest city, Malaga, has it all: the Picasso Museum, excellent restaurants, tapas bars, fishing villages nearby.”
