We also went to the market at Guardamar which is held in a couple of the main streets of the town on a wednesday morning. Its a pretty good market, and we bought some warmer clothes there. The local TV news was full of the fact that it had snowed in Spain, in fact for several days Madrid was at a standstill. Apparently it was the coldest winter for 45 years. We took a drive into the countryside but couldnt find any snow. We used the heating quite a bit. this used 20 Euros of power.
