Mojacar on film

I found this on my internet wanderings yesterday. basically , it’s where we live (5 minutes away anyway) so I thought I’d share it with you all. I especially like the Spanish bloke doing the commentary – Miki says his voice typifies the Spain she remembers, which is fast disappearing. Enjoy!

  1. I do not know if I could live in Blinding White. How is Spain disappearing?
    Do they not speak Spanish anymore.
    He sounds like an announcer I have heard many times from school. Of course my Ocean is the North Atlantic.

  2. The perception is very different indoors, Sherrie, as the white reflects the sun to keep the houses cool. The Spain that is disappearing is the romantic, friendly Spain, sadly being replaced by something a little more selfish and ill-mannered.

  4. Hi Kev, I haven’t got a clue what the presenter is saying but it sounds really dramatic and exciting! It’s interesting what Sherrie said regarding the blinding white. I had a real perception shift in Sicily as many of the towns looked so shanty-townish, yet once inside your whole perspective is radically altered … there is something rich, elegant and beautiful about them. You’re a lucky guy to live somewhere so gorgeous!

  5. Shelley/Bethan: Miki and I are really lucky to live in this lovely place, and we actually take time to appreciate it every day, when we return from swimming and see the mountains rising in front of our place, it’s a good feeling! Many of the houses in Mojacar village are built into the rock, and some rooms have the rock just ‘growing’ out of the walls and disappearing into the floor – it’s so cool!

  6. Those buildings are amazing! I love the one with the blue door at 25 seconds. The visuals remind me of Paulo Coelho, the music Star Wars.

  7. The blue door is right in the centre of the village, hidden down the alleyways, and a favourite spot for photographers.
    The music’ s been bugging me -‘cos I know it, but I can’t quite place it. It’s really famous…might be somebody like Sibelius….anybody have a clue?
