For their November field trip, Los Alcázares Camera Club were invited to the home of member Nilam Wright who lives just outside the village of El Mirador.

With her sister, Nilam runs a business selling curry spice mixes, ‘Curry on Cooking’ so, apart from treating Club members to an excellent Indian meal, they had a demonstration of how to cook poppadoms over an open fire and of course a chance to take photos of Nilam’s charming finca.

As if this wasn’t excitement enough, Nilam is also being filmed for the Channel 5 TV programme ‘Bargain-Loving Brits in the Sun’, and the cameras were still rolling for the visit of Los Alcázares Camera Club, so look out for their appearance in the new series, due to be back on your screens in the Spring.
