We ate, talked about Betty Greenland and her lifetime of travels, contacted home, missed family ...

At one point, when a massive strike hit within metres of the balcony I was on (well protected of course) I ran into the building with a bit of a squeal which set the locals who were sitting inside into fits of laughter. They told me that they'd never seen a storm as intense as this in 30 years. It could have been that they were just being nice though..
