Fiesta time…


My scruffy old Fiesta, bought from a friend for 250 Euros has seen me through the school year. With just three more teaching days to go, she has suddenly started cutting out at low revs, echoing my exhaustion. At the end of a year teaching three subjects for exam classes, I am beginning to cut out at low revs myself.

The Fiesta goes straight to the garage at the end of the week, and I will finally have to spend some money on her. I go under the parasol at the end of the week. With a beer. And the beer will be Estrella Galicia.

It would be a pretty poor blog post on this donkey site if there was not a cute donkey. The cute donkey is a Poitou called d’Artagnan.
This picture of d’Artagnan and his mother is from the Baudets du Breuil website in France, home of the Poitou breed.


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 two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.
