There was a photo in Sur a few days ago which showed Lake Vinuela, Malaga province. It is much lower than when I saw it in June. Also mentioned that more land is going over to growing exotic fruits and needing more water. At the same time in a monthly email from Viva there was an article saying that Spain doesn't sell all it's produce It said they want it back. Haven't seen anything in normal newspapers.

Spanish success

Quote:
The fact that Spanish companies were awarded the contracts for extending the Panama Canal and constructing the Mecca-Medina High-Speed Railway Line epitomises the technological and innovative capacity of Spain in two key sectors for the economy, which are construction and engineering applied to infrastructures. In recent years, Spanish companies have become world leaders in the design, construction and operation of large infrastructure projects. This has been confirmed not only by the large contracts that they have won in numerous countries, but also by their top international rankings in the sector.

Thank, good to know it is real as the Viva story was a bit confusing. I was puzzled by the bit that Spain wants it's thousands of tons of unsold fruit back. Where was it? is there some large pile like the butter and tomato mountain. Do you have any links?

Question uh, but

I suppose it is possible to reclaim something as quickly biodegradable as fresh fruit ....
but ... difficult.
Especially if its large quantities.

Seems that this has been going since 2014. It's the Russians retaliating to the EU sanctions brought on by the war in Ukrania...

The railway in Saudi Arabia hasn't gone smoothly either. It was supposed to be open by the end of last year but is nowhere near fnished. Each side is blaming the other.

SPANISH children can use their mothers' surnames before their fathers' from the end of this month, whether or not both parents agree.
