So yesterdays entry was minimal. There were of course other things I was going to write but having just woken up and realising it was near 8..the party/food time here..I seemed to forget all but the basics.
When I did go out..instead of the expected quiet Sunday evening struggle to find somewhere to eat. It was in fact the complete opposite. It was absolutely heaving with people! I ended up wandering aimlessly just in awe of all the people..until I found myself in a small and where it all became clear. The band and the virgin had been brought out of the garage again! No idea why..perhaps it is a normal Sunday event but there she was again. So like deja vu from last time I was here. What was also quite random earlier was that where as my first visit was blocked by a running event, this time it was a cycling one. Hundreds of families and random people on their bikes in the middle of town. To be honest there was not much actual cycling going on..more lots of standing and chatting but still it was quite a sight. It did make slightly insanely giggle with the realisation that no, I didn't have to get on my bike and join them. Anyway back to the evening..I got so distracted that no real cebratory drinkies Eee had instead i found à teteria (arab tea shop) for some licorice tea and then on to a cafe for some apple tart then bed.
Today was more of the same getting into relaxing mode..slow breakie at a local churrerier, back here to sort my bags abd get the bike to the shop. Then off to the beach for proper sunbathing! Swimming costume, towel and suntan lotion and everything! To be fair I only lasted about half hour.but gotta take things slow! I was going to take in a flick this afternoon but had a fishbowl g&t while waiting and then of course I had to have à second....it's tough all this relaxing business! Still a long way to go though
All in all a good day. Tomorow I continue the relaxing theme by flying to the canaries to cycle up a volcano or two
