|A strange landscape appeared to us - the area was full of greenhouses.|
|A much different landscape compared to Alicante.|
|Our big terrace, in which we enjoyed breakfasts in the sun.|
|First time we saw an almond tree and picked some (plenty) - they are were delicious and by no means comparable to what we have bought in a shop in e.g. Finland or Germany.|
|On the way to Nerja we found some great facilities along the road... :D|

|Appears obvious who comes to live here and yes... we heard Finnish the day we arrived, what a shock!|

|500l and get a free meal - I prefer 25l and a free beer ;)|
It started with the fact that the flat was a rathole. Yeah it looked ok in pics and sounded ok when we booked. Reality was really different. The series of disappointments started with the fact that the office was closed for winter (and not open every day as stated on their door) and you need to call someone for the keys. There was no internet in the apartment, it was freezing cold, no way a mail man would find us here, toilet dirt water was flooding and many other small things did not work either. It became a major and expensive issue now that I needed to call some office in Malaga all the time for fixing things. The ultimate turn-off was that the stove did not work and my master cook could not use it.
All our plans for ordering stuff and getting it to Tarifa got destroyed. We realized then, that we would not get the Carnets done during our stay in Tarifa neither the international driving permits. The tyre delivery company demanded from me that I show a bill with the delivery address to proof my identity (passport was not good enough).
We were really down, depressed and Skippy was almost crying.
During our stay at the previous place we searched what happycow.net has to offer in Tarifa and found the Eco-center. First of all they had good food as well as free and fast WiFi. We became regular customers there :D

|Vegan humus as a starter|
|Vegan Paella - this was delicious and filling|
Something needed to happen and the question was what?
