The Mariela Oasis is, I am told, not reopening after Christmas. This was Mojácars “everything for a euro” place which had a certain following amongst those strong in euros coins and short on tastebuds.
Merry Christmas to the owner of this little cheque! A sign of things to come, I’m afraid. See it on Ebay This is a cheque for £3 which Gordon Brown bounced in his student days. The Bank of Scotland cheque is marked “refer to drawer”, and is supported by a completed form from the Royal Bank of Scotland, advising the payee that the cheque has bounced, and debiting him 13p in charges.
