The big news in this locality this morning is about the small aircraft which made an emergency landing yesterday on our local beach (Caparica), killing a 50 year old man and an 8 year old girl. We are not really safe anywhere and we never know what will happen. I will think of this incident every time I visit that beach in the future. I’m not much of a beach lover (sand gets everywhere) unless of course I’m walking along the fabulous beaches of Boracay in the Philippines or similar idyllic beaches. I was once dining in the late evening on a beach in Koh Chang in Thailand when an almighty thunderstorm struck and everybody scurried back to their beach bungalows.
One of my guests recently gave me a bottle of something called ‘Kangingin’ and it’s been sitting on the shelf in the sitting room ever since. Well right now I’m down with a cold and sore throat and I read the label on the bottle ‘Licor de ervas energetica’. If energetica means ‘energetic’ (it does) it’s exactly what I need today so I decided to pour a glass and try it. Well it’s strong and tastes terrific, a bit like those cough medicines I loved as a boy. I just had a very small measure but it’s already gone to my head. I don’t have any energy though so I guess it’s because of the heat. Maybe I need a second glass to be sure.
I just took this shot from the kitchen window. Isn’t the water a terrific colour today ?
I have work to do. Two visitors left this morning so I have to clean the room and put clean bed sheets etc. I hate doing this stuff but ke garne ?
