Along with many other people, I went to the Balcón de Europa in plenty of time for the scheduled two o’clock start of the cavalcade of thirty Harley Davidson motorcycles, courtesy of Iberian Coast Route and Málaga Chapter of the Harley Davidson Owners Club.
Two-fifteen came and went and a few of the assembled throng wandered off. As Two-thirty passed, quite a few people gave up and departed. At three o’clock I was also about to give up when I heard the distinctive deep-throated chug of a herd of Hogs in the distance.
Five minutes past three – which is obviously roughly two o’clock Spanish time – and ten machines rode onto the Balcón de Europa and parked in front of the hotel. Presumably the other twenty had SatNav problems or failed to obtain some obscure local wearing-leather-on-a-Sunday in March permit.
Those who waited around, however, were treated to some lovely machines, all polished to perfection and glistening in the sun, the proud owners chatting and answering questions. Read more

The Government has decided that all foreigners registered on the Padrón (Population Census List) who have not renewed their inscription before the end of March will be removed from the list. In Nerja there are currently around 2,200 foreigners who have not confirmed their registration on the Padrón.
Renewal is required every 2 years. Nerja Town Hall receives an average annual amount of €90 per person registered on the Padrón from the Regional and Central Government. This could mean loosing an income of around €200,000 meant for services such as doctors, police, schools, infrastructure, firemen and social care.
To renew your Padrón registration is straightforward and only takes a couple of minutes at the most.
You can either go to the multi-purpose counter on the ground floor of the Town Hall Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 13:30, or to the Foreigners Department on Mondays or Thursdays from 10:00 to 14:00.
To renew your inscription, all you need is your NIE or Residence Certificate, a photocopy will suffice, a passport or some sort of official bill (rates, electricity etc) in your name. Read more
