|The library is next to |
Ramón's fruit stall
Now that we live in the centre of Cartagena we have shops, bars, restaurants, museums and offices a stone's throw away. It's brilliant. However some services, like the cinema, big supermarkets and libraries are now further away than they were from our last flat. I checked on the library website to confirm that the nearest branch was, as I suspected, in the Cultural Centre about two kilometres from home but I found that there was a tiny library set up in a stall in the Santa Florentina Market. The market is a five minute walk away.
Now it's not exactly revolutionary but I did think it was pretty innovative for Spain where doing things as they have always been done is almost a phobia.
It was closed though - summer holiday.
