A Close Shave in Marrakech

My first ever 'cut-throat' shave at a Coiffeur on Rue El Mouassine in Marrakech. He also tidied the mop on top. I was probably robbed, I got him down from 250dh to 150dh (about £13) by haggling - he trimmed eyebrows, and clipped nasal and ear 'ole hair too (something they don't do in a Stornoway Barber Shop) - but I came away with no blood lost and the best shave I've ever had leaving my faceand neck as smooth as the proverbial.

Schnauzell, Schnussell or Schnack?

What is the correct term for a Jack Russell x Schnauzer? This is Arlo, she's a new adddition to the Windy household.

Back in Cyprus

Back in Cyprus. Blue skies, sun and heat. Not too much tho', somewhere in the mid 20s. I could get used to this :-)

A photo of Carob flowers which, incidentally, have the most distinctive aroma!

Hey - connection at last

I've been unable to sign in and therefore have been locked out of blogger for months. Just looked at the blog on firefox and the option to sign in is back - you may see a post or 2 from  me in the near future.

Bet you're all glad about that?

For Chikashi

"Ok, that's too cool a photo not to upload on flickr and your blog!" Chikashi Miayamoto's comment on my new Strava profile. A silver medal ride in the Birmingham Division individual pursuit champs in 1980 (beaten by John Patston)

A belated 'Happy New Year' to my followers :-)

Back to Donegal

OK, so I can't go back to somewhere I've never been - but I have just been looking at a route for a 4-5 day bike tour next May. First thoughts -
