Village

There are no more 200 people live here all the time, about half of them are around the 80 mark

Can imagine

Village/rural dialect is often worse than city dialect. Is certainly the case in Germany. Some villages neighboring here have a dialect that it almost like another language, and almost incomprehensible at first, even when someone understands the dialect of THIS village where we live now (with a whopping 2,000 inhabitants). How small is your village?

Andaluz

This village is a nightmare, they don't just drop letters, they drop whole words sometimes. you get the occasional sentence that is just one word

Andaluz

Let's just say that I can communicate w/Mexicans much better. Have heard the special Andalucia dialect, and will require practise to catch the speed and the letter dropping/word running together. Not to mention that my brain runs through English, German, and French vocabulary before coming up with the Spanish words/grammar when speaking myself. But that is just a matter of practise; I suppose.

Hot air

Thanks for the weather update, Bob. Will be a long and tedious journey tomorrow, leaving here at 6:30, a.m. arriving there at 3:30. Am prepared for slight system shock thanks to your "weather report suite"! :-) Also means I will be quiet here for a few days after today, back online on Sunday.

Weather Report suite

The weather here is still warm, a bit cooler than the last few days as we no longer have the wind blowing hot air from the Sahara
