Was anyone paying attention? Do you remember me mentioning my distinct distrust of flying? My absolute terror of turbulence? So which one of you organised this as reported in the Majorca Daily Bulletin
Let us say that we arrived with a bang. And a crash. And an hour late.
The 45 minute late night drive to the villa was illuminated by continual lightning on all sides. Half an hour after arrival, coinciding with a crack as if the world were splitting open, the lights went out. After some tentative poking about in fuse boxes we went to bed to the sound of torrential rain and sporadic flashes.
By lunch time the following day the electricity was back on, the rain had stopped, the Mediterranean sun was doing its best, and I had already spied jacaranda, hibiscus, lantana, oleander, and bougainvillea.
All was well in the world.
