"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."

Market research PDF

I took a phone call this afternoon from a market research company.  At first I thought they were trying to sell me something, but, no, they were just trying to find out how effective it was to use the Spanish World Cup winning football team to advertise certain products. Commissioned by the advertisers themselves, presumably.

First question was “Can you name any of the sponsors of the team?”  To my acute embarrassment I couldn’t think of any! And I’m supposed to be a football fan!  I saw every one of Spain's World Cup matches, for Pete’s sake!

After that the survey got quite interesting as I was asked for my opinions about the effectiveness of the national eleven to promote green energy, environmental awareness, CEPSA fuel and Chevrolet cars. (So those are their sponsors!!)

It was such fun I even agreed to be contacted again in the future for similar surveys!
