Shouldn’t complain – reports from Sweden talks of torrential rains and 12C temps. I guess we are still in need of some calibration to cope with the heat. 300nm north we still complained about 16C water temp. Now we have 26C and 37C mid day air temp. Experimenting with ventilation and all kind of “bimini” shelters. We are now in Cadiz, a fantastic, 3000 year old town. Key features are the narrow streets and a million tapas bars but we have also spotted one mysterious feature of the town. Every evening, about 100+ “young people” (according to our norms, ie 20-25 age) turn up with either a drum, a trumpet or a horn. At 2130 they start playing a rather military march sounding tune with serious conducting until approx 2300. Strange. We tried to get some insights by talking to some folks but are still in the  dark. Some googling suggest Easter festivities preparation, but sounds a bit premature, sure these kids shouldn’t have to wait 8 months to perform. At that age I knew more funny stuff to do in the evenings…

    Nu är ni väldigt nära Gibraltar, och vi är väldigt nära hösten och vintern….undrar vem som har det bäst…


    • Hej Jonas
      vi har det bra.Kämpar med Luther för att förstå att det är tillåtet att njuta av livet. Idag 40 nM på gungande hav mot Tarife. Största arbetet för mig just nu är att tänka ut Augustis resebrev. Ha de gott o hälsa alla.
      Kram, eva
