When w first went to New Zealand I shared my ignorance about the water down the plughole routine. Eventually we got the right answer from you brainboxes out there... here goes again. Why does forked lightening roar so loud but the equally bright sheet lightning just murmurs quietly while you sleep...? And why am I so stupid to be on-line in one of these massive storms...

This week they have added a Love and Spirituality tent. The council have provided them with their own recycling bins.Sunday is the day the police have set to evict them so we hope it will end as peacefully as it has been run so far... I am making no predictions though!
One friend we meet weekly for English conversation admits he gave them the megaphone they use to communicate (don't tell my poor Spanish teacher who struggles to speak above it!) However this guy is a lawyer so we realise they have support from all levels of society. "May you live in interesting times!"

Les was sitting eating his lunch - the only person in the Puerta del Sol who was looking the other way and complaining about the noise of the crowd. After a few verses of "We are the champions..." in English every body went back to work or off for their siesta. Yes we did notice a slight wobble of the outside door at 7pm but thought it was just the neighbours going past. We only heard their was an eartquake when you kind people start to text and email. Thankyou for worrying about us but we are fine!
