Turtle temperature

Turtle temperature, originally uploaded by ccgd.

We had a multi location holiday, ie we went lost of places.....

Flew to Madrid, and then spent a couple of days travelling down through Castille, exploring windmills, castles and little towns in the middle of nowhere.

All in all quite a difference to the Almerian coast where we spend a week in villa high in the hills. It had a very nice pool, where the water temperature was a steady 29 Celsius, as measured by the rather rubbery turtle thermometer.

But this region was expat country, typified by the local English language newspapers our host had kindly left us in the house.

All a quite bizarre cross between the Daily Mail and the Sunday Post. I'd don't think that I'll ever understand the expat mentality - what are they looking for and what are they leaving behind?
