The Town Hall may have dropped the ball with allowing the last bank and cash-point in Mojácar pueblo to close down, but they are continuing to 'modernize' the village. I saw that the stone steps up past the stone square (Plaza Parterre) and the stone church are now being replaced with polished granite. Very fetching. The steps, once completed, will bring the startled walker up to the as yet unnamed 'underground parking' square which is currently being decorated in some harmonious and tasteful way.
The church was open today for mass, and (a rare sight in this wealthy town) a beggar waited outside to ask for alms. This is an 'inside joke', as the begging fraternity usually prefer either the accordion or a perch outside the supermarkets, banks (hah!), estancos and lottery shops on the beach. Not many people visit the pueblo anymore - at least, not more that once.
While the Town Hall cheapens its vision still further (five mayors, and still no Arco de Luciana) with a new exhibition at the Centro Municipal de Arte for Tuesday from 7.00pm called 'Cosas del Corazón' (Things of the Heart), a private initiative from the Bar Restaurante Aquelarre shows more promise. The bar, on the top floor of the village multicentro, has exhibitions of art, live music and comedy, film, and daily degustaciones (tastings) of local food and, for some reason, different brands of gin, all through July and August.
