Biking & Baking in Las Alpujarras

We've been in Spain for over 4 years now - plus 4 motorbikes - and a horse - join us for the ride!

Spain to Suffolk to Scotland to Spain again...

Eight days 'on foreign soil' ...and however nice it has been, I'm ready to go home. The temperature in Aberdeen is around zero so I long for the warm winds of Andalucia...but I've managed to squeeze in seeing friends, doing some intensive gardening, shopping (mountain stuff, a  sweater, Bisto gravy), a spot of tango and getting a decent haircut from an Italian motorcycle-mad hairdresser!  Plus some great meals out (Fox & Goose in Fressingfield, the 'all you can eat' Tropero Brazilian steakhouse in Aberdeen) and sampling Paleo-eating with my son and his girlfriend. Not just 'low carb' but 'zero carb'...very healthy for serious fitness people like them. Less bread, potatoes, grains and sugar...more meat, eggs and salads. How to lose weight and improve your digestion - effortlessly!  I think we need a Crossfit gym like theirs in Granada!

Someone dumped 2 sweet little black kittens in a street bin here yesterday, just around the corner. What a very cruel and thoughtless thing to food, no water, a cold do wonder about some people's moral code. Plenty of animal shelters or the RSPCA to take them to.  Our Alpujarra village has its share of street cats but we manage to feed them through the winter and I doubt if anyone would put them in a skip; I wish we could catch some of them and neuter them to slow down the birth rate however.

So, the joys of Prestwick tomorrow, a quick meet and eat with other friends, and then into the teeth of the gale heading for the Bay of Biscay. What a joy! Perhaps we'll fly above the storm rather than through it...all the way to Malaga!
