Roy reports it's 27 degrees there at the moment. He drove to the Supermarche in Fig Dos Vinhos on his way through and witnessed the total devastation caused by the forest fires, theres not much left of anything at all, just an awful blackness with the smell of wood smoke hanging in the air, even now, after several weeks. Very sad.
He met with our wonderful builder Paulo Piries to go through the details of our next project (pretty much the rest of the house). The builders are starting at 7am tomorrow so travel weary Roy will need to be up and making cups of coffee early.
Me, I am ok, in the UK plodding along in my usual routine, working hard every day...I am not jealous at all (much!).
