Wednesday 3 September 2008


Came across some poems written in darker days, and decided to put them into my blog. Jubilado is the Spanish word for 'retirement'; what a lovely thing to call it. A much better word than our prosaic 'retired'.
Took a course in learning Spanish (introductory) because I wanted to try to understand or grasp a bit of the language.
My studies came in handy on an OUGS trip to Almería in SE Spain. We stayed off the tourist track, ate at the local taverna and I was able to read the menu and make my self understood.
OK, so I didn't end up eating anything and having to guess what it was, but I prefer it that way.

Hi there, Joangee! I was thinking if those wells were full of water, what a funny sight if there was a diving board. Just a crazy thought! :D

Hola mi amiga, great pics, sounds like you had a great holiday, off the tourist trail is always more fun don't you think!

Yes, much better than the popular places.
Fond memories, sunny days and good company
