Yukata! That’s the traditional Japanese summer get-up. It’s kimono but more casual. Less elaborate. It makes for great comfort. And Japanese outfitters say it makes women look particularly beautiful. Not that the yukata is for girls only. It’s for the male of the species too.
I’VE just got back from Pamplona and if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it and will repeat it again a thousand times; Never Again.You can quote me next year. I’m bearing the scars of several cornadas, mostly in the region of the liver (pronóstico: muy grave.) and that last bit of the trip, after the car blew up in flames sixty nine kilómetros outside Madrid played hell with my gout. So on that happy note of goodwill and Christian charity, I will leave you to retire to my local clinic. And a happy Sanfermines next year to each and every loving little one of you.
A beautiful, timeless, classic, witty account of the running of the bulls. And to think that it was written no less than 45 years ago. In GUIDEPOST, of course!

It is summer time now when all movement is poured stickily out of a bottle. It is no time to do anything at all. And so here’s a Torremolinos without movement in, and for, a summer afternoon.

Did you know that El Escorial was built starting in 1563 to be the final resting place for the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, the father of the Spanish King Phillip II? It was finished in 1584 as not only his palace but as a Hieronymite monastery--hence its somber shadows and design.
