At the airport, ND noticed publicity posters of La Palma which feature the enormously varied cloud formations He was noticed in turn by Dacil, who used to work in the Residencia The appearance of this car is evidence of the fact that we had just missed the Fiesta del Pulvo in which, as the story goes, thin-legged Englishmen are pounded with flour while their wives screech "Derek, I just washed those shorts!" etc
Goin' home.
