The mayor of Almería was refreshingly honest and open about the crisis in El Toyo . “I have sent several urgent communications to Costas [the coastal authorities who the mayor claims are in charge of looking after the beaches in the area] and they have not yet replied to me” he said. “As regards the rest of it” [unbuilt commercial centres, lack of infrastructure, half built roads and plazas, etc etc etc] “we have no money and nobody is interested in buying anthing. I don’t have a magic wand and until the credit crisis is over I cannot do anything”.
As I said before – all the money and attention is on todays white elephent, PITA. El Toyo seems doomed to decay and rot in front of our eyes.
