The Formula One Track

Just four weeks to go before the Formula 1 race here in Valencia and still lots of work to be done. I have attached a load of photos here for you to peruse and make up your own mind. The track itself is finished but appraently it was reported today that access points are too limited currently in case of crashes. In the photos you can see, stands that will be erected, the track itself at various points, tyres and various views.

Today I was given tickets for the first day of practice, thanks Will, and I will keep you informed of any major news right here.

Do You Want to Care for An 85 Year Old?

An absolute bargain of a house has come up for sale in Javea reduced from 270000 Euros to 180000 Euros for very urgent sale due to liquidity problems of the builder who owns it. This is 40% BMV compared with the local market as the owner needs money now. (I only have outside photos at the moment but I am assured it is very well kept inside and you can see it here) The only downside is that it has a sitting tenant with lifetime usage of the property. It may be possible to buy her out of this right for a price as she is 85. Meanwhile the house itself is 128m2 with three bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms, kitchen, lounge and covered and open terraces. The plot of almost 1000m2 is spacious and it is set in an excellent area of Javea, Portichell, near to all the local amenities.
