Irrigation in action


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself dividing my time mostly between looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca and preparing a legal case against the corrupt management of my monstrous last employer - the Elians group - for unfair dismissal. I like to hear the wind in the pine trees. I do not like struggling to get a duvet into a duvet cover. My musical tastes are extinct and I have mostly given up cycle racing.

    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.
