I’m sitting at a table with a couple of dozen people at the end of a long and winding road, and I am watching a movie about a woman who has just moved into a new home, a place she has not been in for many years.
I am in the car, watching as her old house is demolished to make way for the new home.
I can’t wait for her to move in and see her new house, but I can only imagine the havoc it will cause her, her family and her neighbors.
The landscape in Spain, especially in Parque Llanos, the area where I am sitting, is changing so rapidly.
The land is being subdivided, and the trees are being cut down, to make room for houses.
The old houses are being demolished and rebuilt as small apartment complexes.
And that’s happening in an area that has long been called paradise, but now it is known as a place that has no future.
A new study conducted by researchers at the Instituto de Investigaciones de Recursos de Madrid shows that there is a shortage of land for the population to live in.
And this shortage is affecting the quality of life for Spaniards.
