Born a "Norverner", she then spent most of her life "Dann Saff" before moving to Spain in 2006. Elle's loves are Alan, the internet, dogs, good food, and dry white wine - although not necessarily in that order.

    My Spanish friend told me that people from Olula are officially called Olulense, but they are locally known as “Onion Heads” by other close by villages!

    Living in Lanzarote, I think I prefer to be known as a conejero, rather than a cabron ( dumbass )!

    PS. I seem to have fallen off your mailing list so I’ll add myself back on

    Para referirnos a los habitantes de cierta región o país usamos el “gentilicio” (es un adjetivo). es decir, una persona nacida en Andalucía es andaluz/a, we don,t use capitals for “gentilicios”.
