Thoughts from Galicia, Spain

Random thoughts from a Brit in the North West. Sometimes serious, sometimes not. Quite often curmudgeonly.

Thoughts from Pontevedra, Galicia, Spain: 16 July 2020

Night’s candles are burnt out, and jocund day

Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops.

Spanish life is not always likeable but it is compellingly loveable.   

- Christopher Howse: 'A Pilgrim in Spain'  

By the time you read this I should be several hours into a road trip to Bordeaux, en route to Gouda in the Nederlands. 

My Dutch houseguest is supplying the car and he insists on leaving at 4am. His custom, he says. Strange volk, the Dutch. His forenames are Petrus Hendrikus Auke Maria, for god's sake . . . 

I don't have time to write a post for tomorrow. So, I've added to this blog on Blogger all the Labels I used to have, so  that, if you have withdrawal symptoms, you can click here and select your subject on the right of the text. 

But I must confess I stopped allocating Labels several years ago. So the posts which appear under each one are old. But possibly still relevant.
