... was on our own. We decided to try one of the tapas restaurants near the restaurant. The menu was in Spanish with English in parentheses.

A sleep-in then breakfast on the rooftop terrace is an ideal way to start the day and Liz presents me with a scarf that I had spotted in a shop yesterday. MARIGOLD! My favourite colour!
