    Do I detect the odour of troll? Or is the OP victim of a practical joke? Very similar smell IIRC

    I have to agree, some rare elements there.

    Are you sure your Mexican friend is Greek?

    If he said he came from Episcopi it could be Huish Episcopi and his Somerset accent mislead you.

    I dunno. He dosnt look much like the only other greek I know - the one married to the queen.

    I think my swimbo has been conned. i have said for months that his window cleaning is bad. sometimes he calls for the money even before he has done them - and she gives it too him!!!!

    He cant even speak mexican - let alone spannish.

I left because of the matriculation tax myself. There won't be any foreign boats left in Spain soon and the Spanish will be the losers because their marine industry will be wrecked

    I was about to say the same as you Mike. The corollary of which can be found by a quick visit to Marina Smir, Morocco to look at all the Spanish boats and English ex-pat boats that have arrived there. It used to be a very quiet (dull even) marina. But not now!
