Village

It is a reasonable size village but hardly anyone lives here most of the time.

It is full village fiesta time and Christmas and Semana Santa

probably 800-1000 people

There is no work here apart from subsistence farming so most of the younger people have moved to the coast or elsewhere in Spain

There are no more 200 people live here all the time, about half of them are around the 80 mark

Can imagine

Village/rural dialect is often worse than city dialect. Is certainly the case in Germany. Some villages neighboring here have a dialect that it almost like another language, and almost incomprehensible at first, even when someone understands the dialect of THIS village where we live now (with a whopping 2,000 inhabitants). How small is your village?

Andaluz

This village is a nightmare, they don't just drop letters, they drop whole words sometimes. you get the occasional sentence that is just one word

Andaluz

Let's just say that I can communicate w/Mexicans much better. Have heard the special Andalucia dialect, and will require practise to catch the speed and the letter dropping/word running together. Not to mention that my brain runs through English, German, and French vocabulary before coming up with the Spanish words/grammar when speaking myself. But that is just a matter of practise; I suppose.

Hot air

Thanks for the weather update, Bob. Will be a long and tedious journey tomorrow, leaving here at 6:30, a.m. arriving there at 3:30. Am prepared for slight system shock thanks to your "weather report suite"! :-) Also means I will be quiet here for a few days after today, back online on Sunday.
