At first, I thought there had been an accident along the river (or someone had admitted to dumping a body there) but this was actually a competition for firefighters. I believe they were going to throw a car into the water (the purple one on the river bank) and then retrieve it.
We’ve had a few rainy weekends (followed by sunny weekdays…) but, as usual, runners cannot be stopped, even if they’re Sevillians.
We lost an hour of sleep today, didn’t we? And here I thought I might be showing some early signs of a cold but I guess it’s just signs of getting an hour less of sleep. Of course, this means we’ll go back to everything being super dark in the morning until 9am, as is day, didn’t we? And here I thought I might be showing some early signs of a cold but I guess it’s just signs of getting an hour less of sleep. Of course, this means we’ll go back to everything being super dark in the morning until 9am, as is the usual for Seville – timewise, we should be aligned with Portugal (and Spain and France were until WWII).
Morning rain in Seville, Saturday a week before the marathon and a big rowing competition – the only people around were super fit runners, guys on bikes yelling at people in the water and me and another slow runner.
I haven’t been following the local news lately but the fact that the police are combing the bottom of the Guadalquivir for the body of Marta del Castillo even made it to the national news. From what I heard, part of the path along the river is still completely closed.
In a strange twist of fate, it’s pouring outside as I’m posting this.
Stared Ready Player One last night – does it get better because I’m not so sure about the first few pages… Maybe I’ll finally get a start on Seveneves instead continuing with this one.
In case anyone is keeping tabs, my second attempt at a running streak fell apart about as soon as it started.
La vie est un long fleuve tranquille…
I have mastered the art of freezing milk (which basically requires switching recipients and not putting too much in because it expands as it freezes). No more wastage! Yes, on some days even the smallest accomplishments count.
I think I must have slept 9 hours last night and that seems to be excessive – and now Fitbit won’t sync so I don’t know for sure if I hit the 9 hour mark or not! Talk about first world problems…
We had a terribly rainy May and now it feels like Seville has completely moved to Brittany – it’s been rain, rain and more rain since the start of November!
I watched “Wreck-it Ralph” last night, what a wonderful film! I only meant to start watching it but I just couldn’t turn it off!
Right now I’m at that stage of, “potentially in a day or two I will be sick”. I’m tired, I can feel everything starting to hurt and I had trouble waking up this morning – and that’s probably the first sign that something isn’t quite right.
I remember this day, October 11th – it had been raining and when I went for a walk there was no one around by the river when it is usually quite busy. Peeps around here aren’t just all that fine with rain.
