The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance and HMS Pinafore are probably the most performed light operas of all times.

Residencia and Padron

In a previous posting in my blog, I looked at getting your official Spanish papers. Here is the final part of the story.

We had listened to all the reminders in the media here in the spring that there was a final date to get yourself on the electoral register and we made sure we got our names down before the final date. Did this mean that we got to vote in the local elections? No. Because we haven’t lived here for five years yet!  We’re not entitled to vote for the cabildo but we can vote for the local mayor. But well done to Gladys who won in Playa Blanca. Her posters were everywhere when we were looking at cars to buy and they always referred to her as Gladys without a second name. We liked this so much that we named our car Gladys after her!

So we were on our way – we had our NIEs and were on the padron and had our certificado de empadronamiento so the next step was to apply for residencia. Not only does this register you as living in Lanzarote but it also gives you very generous discounts on  read more »
