Irrigation in action


About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have three blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog begun in 2015, plus an old donkey blog which ran from 2010 to 2015.

    Can you swim in that cistern?

  3. Frere Rabit says:

    Absolutely not! The channel that flows from up the hill, four kilometres through a steep banked valled, brings drainage water from Finestrat. I have to make sure the donkeys don’t drink it, and I certainly wouldn’t want to fall in the cistern! The donkeys drink water from my house cistern, which takes qa lorry tanker load of water once every two months for 60 Euros (or whatever the equivalent is when we all inevitably go back to Pesetas after the Euro crashes!)

    For some strange reason, I thought that you lived uphill from Finestrat, not downhill. Pity you can’t swim in it, it looks lovely.
