"When I bought an apartment in Ronda in 2001 and a house in 2003, Paul was an invaluable help in my dealings with estate agents, lawyers, at the bank and at the notary. It’s too risky to do it all without a competent interpreter. Many do, but I would strongly advise against it."

Spain again! PDF
Montag, den 02. Juli 2012 um 00:00 Uhr
 

Spain won the European Football Championship last night by defeating Italy 4-0 in the final in Kiev, Ukraine. In doing so they confirmed themselves as the world leaders at the sport, having won three consecutive major championships: Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and now Euro 2012.

They also claimed another record by notching up the highest winning score ever in a major championship.

Before the game, the smart money had been on Italy. The Azurri had played really well in defeating much-fancied Germany in the semi-final and Spain, although winning their matches, were playing in a lack-lustre – some said boring – manner.

Yet, on the night of the final in Kiev, Spain dished out a footballing lesson. Comfortably 2-0 up at half time courtesy of goals by Silva and Jordi Alba, once Italy had been reduced to 10 men mid-way through the second half by an injury after they had used all three of their permitted substitues, the game was over.

Two Spanish substitutes, Torres and Mata, helped themselves to a goal each and Spain started to celebrate a fine victory.

The sounds of car horns and an impromptu party could be heard late into the night.
