... A nice short day out today and now were relaxing at the hotel - birds are singing and orange blossom again. It's been overcast today, but pleasant with long sleeves on. There'll be no sunburn though. Our guide has been lovely and helps us all order at the cafes. We've not had to eat any animals yet :) Lots of stray cats at the restaurants but not so many dogs.

The driver furrowed his brow, "Non!" "Non magnifique?" "NON!" Eventually the driver let this go and made to leave.
