I wanted to write a big long thing about this, but haven’t had time. I still don’t, so this will be brief.
Things that stood out:
- Heat! 40+ degrees during the day – the walk from the hotel to the beach seemed to take an hour, even though it was only 10 minutes. I barely tanned as being in the sun was to be cooked alive.
- Bodies everywhere – because of the heat, campers took refuge wherever possible, meaning every shady area of town was covered in sleeping bikinied bodies – a bit like a beach side massacre
- Music – lots of good stuff – I loved Mumford and Sons, Ellie Goulding (who was amazing standing in for Lily Allen), Two Door Cinema, Vampire Weekend, Dizzie Rascal – so much fun
- Food – a lot of oily food with a lot of garlic, but tasty – lots of squid and octopus and paella three times
- Wine – a lot of this
Lots of pics and videos online on my Flickr
