I'm home! It was a fab holiday but in some ways quite humbling. In some of the bays we visited we felt like aliens from another planet coming in out yachts to these impoverished places, short of water and waiting for the rain to start so they could plant next year's food and ganja. More anon.
Carpe diem. Savour every moment.

Welcome back!! That would be an humbling experience to say the least. OTOH, doesn't your coming there provide some economic boost as well as jobs for the locals? Still and all, the inequity would haunt me.

Must have been super to be in the lovely weather!

I shouldn't think so.

Speaking of 'planes: my best mate lives in Oz (near Melbourne)
Got a message from him yesterday, telling me that he'd been to his mum's funeral on Friday, in Manchester, and now, of course, is stuck in the UK waiting for the skies to clear.

Good news JJ! Looks like BA is flying some planes out. If your mate has current tickets and not ones that were cancelled, he'll get first priority it seems.

Good news for me too!
