As the rest of Europe freezes, and western Andalucía is swept out of sea (terrible floods), at 8:30 this morning it was 20ºC, according to my car. That’s almost 30º degrees warmer than the UK at the moment. Fantastic. This sort of weather makes up for the corruption, over efficient police, and illegal homes. And should the mood take me, within 2 hours I could be in one of Europe’s largest ski resorts.
