  1. For our last 6 weeks in Guadix before moving to France, the daytime temperature was a steady 46C, that was 2009.

    Before moving from rainsodden Galicia I checked all the info and nowhere did I find temps of 46C mentioned or the move would never have happened, we would have moved directly to France.

    It’s been very hot for a few days here in the Avreyon, temps up to 34C – we can handle that.

    I remember seeing the poor sods building (joke coming here) the flood proection walls on either side of the river Guadix, how they survived in those temps I just don’t know, the walls were not for flood protection but the first step in building more illegal blocks of flats on prime agricultural land.
