Day 5 - Our Box Turns Up

Miraculously, our shipped belongings turn up only one week and two days after we sent them from Glasgow. It's miraculous because in the absence of street names or house numbers, the only address is Michael’s name, followed by the name of the nearest church. There is a postcode, but it is shared by all 15,000 residents on the island.

Dinner is octopus and onions, made by Michael. He is very proud of his cookery.

Later, we go for a walk and sit by the wharf in the middle of town. We reflect how nice it is to be able to sit outside at midnight in just a t-shirt and shorts (23 degrees C) and with absolutely NO chance of being harassed by aggressive drunks.
