gorgeous colours on a gorgeous day
I had an email from a Dr de Bruyn, telling me he was not in Singapore any more (before Borneo) but had absconded to Thailand.
He is supposed to be working - instead he is sitting on a beach or beside a pool in Thailand. There is something dramatically wrong with this scenario. I am here in cool, windy Wales and he is in hot, sunny Thailand - where everything and everyone seems so impossibly beautiful and exotic and serene.
Not to mention the outstanding food.
But wait, I am being unkind, because in fact we have been having beautiful weather since Dr de Bruyn left.
Gorgeous, sunny, champagne days - the kind that make the mountains shine in all their glory.
When the sun sets behind them the outline of the ridges against the clear sky, echoed with a faint line of light is truly breathtaking.
So enjoy your cocktail Mark, I am off to salute the mountains and sip on a glass of champagne!
