Hi everybody.

Hi Helen, welcome to the Forum, as La mancha has already said folk on here are very helpful and impart LOT'S of useful info and advice. There are some good B&B caves in the region. Do you have any idea exactly which area you plan to visit? Andalucia is a big place!! Most people on the forum live in the Altiplano area (eg Baza, Benamaural, Castillejar, Huescar, Galera etc ..... to give some examples and for you to locate the area on a map!). I took early retirement and moved here at the begining of May this year, I love it! Good luck with your plans!

Yes Helen, it's fairly accurate, although my eyes are grey green, not blue. My belly is quite fat, but I have smaller feet. It was the closest I could get. This is also a good likeness... albino but thankfully my teeth aren't as big.

Benamaurel is very nice and convenient for Baza. Actually, almost everywhere is nice in the Altiplano.

Hi Helen - yes I live in Galera and have had my cave for 4 years now. This is a lovely area and cave living is the best! I hope you enjoy your visit and find somewhere you like.

All the very best,
