Following on from the filming, there are now tours in Cáceres showing the filming locations.
Romeo and Juliet?

Didn't take long for this to slip down the pages
Has anyone been following the death of poor Lucia aged 3? Lots of rumours around according to a friend who lives in Pizzara. Lucia and her Parents were having dinner with other relatives at a cafe adjoining the rail station. She was playing outside with her two cousins aged 9 and 4. At 11.20pm she was missed, her dummy which they say she cried if she lost it was on the floor. Despite searches she was not found until early morning when a train driver spotted the body at the side of the line. A blow to the head was evident. TV reporter questioned why if she was lost she walked towards the dark instead of towards the village lights

The Police are presently going with the the theory that she wandered off, fell asleep and was hit by the train. Many locals dispute this as the body was 3 or 4 kilometros down the tracks. Said to be an impossible terrain to cover in the dark even for an adult. Lucia was only wearing sandals but did not even have a scratch on her feet and legs despite there being many large stones.

According to my friend the place is buzzing with gossip and rumour, sounds similar to the books and plays by Lorca about village life. Today a reporter from Sur has put on a video of the walk he did on the track in the dark.

The drought from hell has arrived in Spain
Quote:
Reservoirs without water, expansive desert–like fields, lost crops, and wildfires. These are all symptoms of the persistent drought in Spain. The reservoirs are at their lowest levels since the 1990s.
