We were invited to the AECC cancer dinner at the Hotel Puntazo on Mojacar Playa on Friday, where about 200 people joined for a buffet and some short speeches and some raffle-prizes. On the way home, we were able to see the ravages of the young'uns, which, truth to say, didn't look so bad.
For Mojácar to stop the kids, the botellones
and the boozing (and remember, the kids have every right to come here and not
drink in the expensive bars and clubs), we need to change Mojácar's image. A friend called Antonio has posted elsewhere articles from El Ideal and El Mundo going back several years bemoaning the late nights, noise, filth, damage and so on of the kids; but the main Mojácar complaint seems to be that they don't spend their money in the bars (who are our voters, cousins and primos
). 'Keep the bars open longer' say the opposition parties in the Town Hall. Are they mad?
To change Mojácar's image one has to go to the social media (Facebook, YouTube and so on) and re-write the story. This would probably be beyond our Tourist Councillor, who can't even manage putting the promotions into English, preferring the Google Translator (known locally as the 'dump in your soup' school of translating). However, if the top hit song of last year is the Maui disk-jockey created 'Mojitos, Mujeres, Mojácar
' (Cocktails, Women and Mojácar) then we must change our thrust towards older people. Wealthier ones too, but that's another story. House buyers...
Anyhow, here ¡s an idea for a song: 'Mojácar: Té, Tú y el Tacatá
' (Mojácar: tea, you and the walking frame) if anybody wants to provide the music. Next year, let's try and get it right!
