It’s 8.30 p.m. in Madrid, I’m here and alive, the forsythia and cherry blossom are out in force, and so, in force, are the Spaniards. More anon – if I don’t go to bed now, I’ll fall on my face.

    congratulations, once again, for uprooting and transplanting to sunnier climes.

    I forgot to ask if you have an away-from-home e-mail address for the next month. If so, please let me know so I don't have to talk to you in public every time!

    and hola to Bruce – may you both enjoy every step of the way – travel always a pilgrimage of one sort or another.
