Problem is, we're not very sure if there's going to be sunlight. I've checked five different weather websites, and got five different answers. They range from Fog on Saturday and Black Cloud With Two Raindrops on Sunday through to Sunny on Saturday and Sun With Small White Cloud on Sunday. The temperature ranges are highs from 10°C to 17°C, and lows from 3°C to 8°C. All we can actually conclude from this is that weather will exist.
Yep, I know that to guarantee sun we should have gone for one of the Canary Isles or Cyprus; but major cities ensure food I can eat, a good public transport system and things that we both want to do. I'm not sure what there is to do in some of the Canary Isles apart from lie on the beach and get drunk (which appeals to Richard about as much as an extra hole in his head); nor how navigable they are without a car. That requires more research than we had time to do.
Anyway... as usual, we have booked the hotel based mainly on its proximity to the centre + free wifi (the one we chose claims to be eco-friendly, gay-friendly AND listed the free wifi four times in the description!), so I expect I'll be online about as much as I ever am at weekends. Just letting you know :)
