The rain!The rain!
The rain!

Well, someone enjoyed it - Kate and I were beyond saving - more soaked than in east Africa, anywhere in India...no-one ever said bring a brolly!
They loved the rain!They loved the rain!

We got totally soaked through in a two hour, thunderous downpour - the boys were in heaven, no shoes anyway and very little clothing to get wet and they just ran around in circles, laughing and waving at us before finally deciding they might as well just sit down!

Beautiful old church in a square filled with blue-chairs cafes and people eating and drinking, lounging around...

door knocker...if I ever find this again, I'll know it's the restaurant Kate and I had lunch at...wish I could remember the name - any ideas anyone?

No problem, she said, take the photo anyway...I was actually trying to get the ceiling and walls in, but it was impossible...however, she looks great and was much less fed up than she looks!
