    I find myself standing out in the rain when the clouds have seeded over Abu Dhabi (yes, the Government pay for rain here). Glorious...for all of 30 seconds before I remember what happens to one's appearance in these unfavourable conditions when donning your Havianas.

    An Ode to a Haggis, by any chance?

    Mine Host will be reciting 'Chieftain o' Puddings'. I may try a bit of McGonagle. When the rains arrived on a Sunday morning during my first term in Africa, the students returning from church sat on the wet grass below my office and waved their arms in the air. I thought this a bit odd at the time but now I live in Andalusia I get the point. Mind you, our current spate of rain showers has come at the wrong time for the olive harvest. Fortunately, these days, a much younger Spanish friend looks after our finca.
