    ...I fuel up etc and point the Hymer south and I always find a calm descends over me and a big smile stretches fro ear to ear...

    ... always.

    Just arrived at the walled city of Evora where I know of a small but very tasty Chinese buffet place.

    What is the good of a small buffet to a big guy like you. You'll have to have some toast when you get home.

    Listen very carefully, I will say this only once.

    How many French are there ?
    How many Chinese are there ?

    I rest my case.

    If you want a personalised number plate, there is one available in Figueira. Not my thing, I can always recognise my vehicle but some people like them.

    Now at Santa Luzia very near my old hunting ground of Tavira/Cabanas...

    Am having a Rufty Tufty, off-site, mini meet with a couple (+1) of famous, celebrity Funsters.

    My people tell me pancakes are on the way... yummmmmmmmmmy.
