Rain, rain go away!

The weather has broken. Last night there was a terrific storm and today has been light rain pretty well all day. No reason not to swim though!

The above is NOT the swimming pool but a vast jacuzzi! The temperature is maintained at hot and there are numerous jets in varying different strengths all over it. Everyone, men and women has to wear a swim cap. They can be bought in every shop all over the town as well as in the hotel and we all look like real wallies in them.

The entire town is in a time warp. Gentlemen wear jackets in the dining room and waiters serve tiny coffees to elderly ladies sitting in wicker chairs at the front of every hotel. Everyone wanders around the hotel in towelling robes and slippers.

It us all a bit like a Viconti film, Dirk Bogarde might appear at any moment.
