The thing to remember about Blogs, and perhaps it’s unique in the history of journal-writing, is that the reader comes upon one’s entries in backwards chronological order. So the Blog writer has to think backwards, upside down even. At least, I should be aware that any newcomer to this Blog won’t have a clue what this message (received from a Spanish friend) is about unless you refer to my following (i.e. previous) Blog, below.
I quote the message so that you can see the dance on the boat was not fictitious; it really happened. I’d also like to share the charm of my friend’s English.
Thank you very much for the beautiful day at the boat. The colours of the coast and the river were wonderful, the music and dance very funny.
I have a friend from the Mexican Embassy who would like to be included in the club…
