February 7

Not a lot to report – we’re having a cold snap at the moment – down to zero at night and up to 6 daytime. So I still haven’t touched my bike. It’ll be a bit warmer by next week and I must get more exercise as I’m putting on weight. 

There are lots of stray dogs. It seems that people just chuck unwanted puppies out onto the streets, where they learn to fend for themselves. They are normally quite docile, but can get a bit rowdy at times.  They don’t seem to care about the temperatures at night – sitting on cold stone slabs. So here are some photos of local dogs.
