Les was more than happy to see:
His pen pal Jose de Jorge
His pen pal's boat
All the other "gadgees"
The Valoria -
Boat belonging to Amancio Ortega, (founder of Zara and the tenth richest man in the world.)
However as it hasn't a mast, she is no longer interested.

Tonight we nipped into town partly to buy baby presents, but also to see how the Red Box team of Kilometro Zero were getting on doing open air preaching amidst thousands of Catholic youth, here for the World Youth Day and the Pope's visit tomorrow. We never found our friends on the Red Box because just at their usual start time a crowd of about 5,000 protestors marched onto the square calling out their protests about the government's spending of public funds on a religious event. One example has been cheap fares on the Metro for 1 million delegates the week after our normal fares have gone up 50%!
