      ... the net. Sadly no, it wasn't me! Oh and just so you are all updated. Yes I have burnt and yes my nose has gone through the many varieties of shades of red. I feel like a ripening tomato. My scalp has just about stopped peeling. Just about ready for one more day and then the 38 degree heat of South America will soon be upon me. There is some brown somewhere underneath however.

      ... with to old guys about my age about politics and politicians and how they are all money grabbing buggers who should be shot, or something like that before returning to the hotel for the three S's. After I'd shaved and showered I dressed for the wedding.

      ... we came across a pretty stone store building, set in beautiful grounds and an adjoining bridge. After a quick stop, we made our way back to our campsite for our evening meal and an evening of Jazz and Blues as part of the Jazz and Blues festival, where over the next three days there will be over 150 hours of Jazz and Blues over 6 venues. We listened to the likes of ‘Blue Monkey Racket’, ‘River Rockers’ ‘Single Coil and the ...
