Day 26 cont.

After a cooked breakfast we visited San Pedro market, where I managed to buy a handbag for €10 even though he wanted €20 for it! It was a very colourful market with just about every nationality there.

A few spots of rain and the traders started to pack up, so we headed off to do a little food shopping in Costco. Life then got exciting when the storm hit and the shop lights went out! The emergency lighting was very good and they were even prepared with a battery hand held machine for the credit card.

As we prepared to dash to the car a young lady shopper grabbed two plastic bags and proceeded to put them on her shoes as if it was an every day occurrence ( she is ahead of Chris wading through the stream of water).

The evening was spent at Route 66 Resturant with Pauline, Pat, Bridie, Amy and Brian to celebrate Chris's birthday. The meal was excellent.

Driving home the lightening was all around us, but no thunder or rain YET! When it rains around here the roads just flood as it is so torrential.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
