(Really like this building we passed yesterday)
As I write the wind is gusting outside the van and I can hear the not so gentle raindrops on the roof. In other circumstances I might be tempted to complain but I have been watching the storm reports from Ireland so I know we are the lucky ones. It is really hard to imagine what it’s like back home. When my sister was in Canada and she used to tell us about the snow it was hard to imagine that too.

We’re at a supermarket car park again today… with all the perks. Our spot is right beside the 24 hour petrol station. We seem to be getting used to the noises or else no one was buying petrol last night. There’s also a phone shop and a dry cleaners, there’s even a hardware shop. There’s a cafe too, with the best deals in coffee and natas – unfortunately!
(Two Americano coffees + two natas = €2.70!)
Tomorrow we’re off to stay at a zoo, again. The overnight cost includes electricity and entry into the zoo… so I anticipate more elephant pictures, possibly. Also it’s near Porto so if the weather improves we might chance getting the bus into town.
Can you imagine living in a zoo? Mairead.
