Navidad con mi familia en Rojales.....
"A Family Christmas"
So... I have just returned from my second trip to visit family for Christmas in Rojales. On this occasion I spent a little more time exploring the area, for which I have created a travelogue and will soon be adding more local info with tips and photos. Feel free to message me for any info :)

A Christmas Visit
"La Navidad, 2008"
With family living in the centre of Rojales, on this occasion I stayed with some visiting family in the neighbouring area, Benimar, an urbanización (residential area) mainly inhabited by extranjeros... with a small local complex of shops/bars/restaurants to accompany. English/Dutch/Chinese food etc. can be found here. I also met a man selling freshly hand-picked mandarines each day (very cheap too - a carrier bag full was only 1,50€)
A short 20-minute walk brought me back down to the more traditional town of Rojales. with among others, a lovely gift shop of handmade crafts, clothing and accessories. The friendly owner is himself a craftsman of leather goods, made in his workshop at one of the local cuevas artesanales (see my tips for more info). Make a visit for some authentic locally-made products at very good prices - and say hola to his lovely dog!
