Spanish Citroen Sojourn

It's time for our Biannual journey to the World Meeting of 2CV Friends. This year it's in Alcaniz, Spain. We arrived on Tuesday & it's been scorching with temperatures in the high 30's. We've caught up with friends we haven't seen in ages, sampled the local beers (Ambar Especial being the beer of choice at the moment), wines & sangria and admired a great selection of A series Citroens.

We're camped on the hillside over looking the Motorland racing circuit. The sun is waking us before 9, but by about noon it's becoming too hot to do much, so it's time to find some shade down by the lake have some cool drinks and catch a siesta. There's been various activities such as engine building & 2CV chassis changes as well as a wide selection of music including some local bands playing which went down well. Anyway I'm getting shouted at that it's my round so I'd better get back to my hol, Salut!

Whilst we're away George & Craig are back on board, working Alton for the first weekend of the month. So a big thank you to them for enabling us to get away.
