On ambience

Maggie and I wandered around Ciudad Rodrigo yesterday. I hadn't realised just how "famous" she is in this little town. Adults and tiny children greeted her on the street. More than one person said, "ah, you're the Maggie, the English teacher, my son/daughter loves you". They bought us drinks. she knows lots and lots of people.

Mind you we were in another café and a man who was cooking at the barbecue, dressed as a chicken and with curiously aligned teeth came out from behind the bar, greeted us like long lost friends and bought us drinks.

Perhaps they just like talking and buying strangers drinks. Lovely place.
