Welcome to the October issue of Key to Mijas Costa. In my office it is 26º but my little granddaughter in the UK is on the swing in the park with her woolly hat and coat on and that is exactly why I love this time of year in Mijas Costa so much!
I would like to welcome Cecilia Tacchi to the magazine. She is a doctor and now a “patient advocate”. One of the biggest problems we have here relates to our health. Even if we have quite a good command of Spanish, how can we expect to get it right with the medical terminology, especially when we are not feeling at our best? Cecilia not only does this for you, but she can help you with all your patient care from start to finish. Things are different here to what we are used to, especially the health system, and I am sure we do not really know what we are entitled to or how to make sure we get it. Please see page 19 for more information on how she can make life easier for you.
We have expanded our Holistic Section in this issue with more interesting articles for you to read as well as some new practitioners, some of whom you can meet at the annual Mind, Body & Spirit Festival in Marbella later this month, including Dorota Rozmus who you can find out about on page 25. This leads me on nicely to the numerous events in the coming months. A selection of these are on page 38.
Lucy is Missing – if you have seen the dog whose information is on page 40, her owner will be over the moon if she gets her back.
Finally, don’t forget to book early for Christmas as some of the restaurants have very little availability already. You will find a great selection as always in our Restaurant Section which starts on page 54.
