John’s friend Manolo went home this morning. John invited him to stay with us for three days as a kind of local guide. To be. honest I wasn’t sure about the idea at first, but as soon as I saw the dudes Pink Floyd T shirt, I knew we were going to get along. In fact he reminded me of Charlie or James so much that I asked him if he had heard of the Cat Empire. He had a very relaxed, laid back air about him, but one of a man who knows what he is doing. He was with us for the last three days , taking us to the most beautiful spots. He had to return to his home in Fueta Ventura today, but we hope to go visit him there in a day or two; if not hopefully we can meet up in London. He was such a great, kind guy I really hope I haven’t seen the last of him. Friendships with people like him are worth working on.
