Bacchus! Stay on-line!

I may have caught you! Do you have the MSN? I have sent you a E mail with my moniker. Get on-line!

F#@*ing Freak?

Someone left an unpleasant comment about my last entry. Some people are very funny when it comes to strangers from abroad! I will leave this little comment up, I think, as a little fetish/memento of my online persona. As a very great man once said: 'It is all good.'

Now, of Barcelona. Friends, it is a city of lights and sweet delicacies. We drank great champagne in a club called 'Cazadores', a very modern place. Thank you for that suggestion, Cecil, and glad to hear you are recovered from your back injury!

I have decided to travel across Iberia in a rented Audi and meet up with La Machisma in Lisbon (Portugal). I trust the crew not to run her aground in the Gibraltar Straits.

The people are very appealing here, visually. Everyone is tanned and full of Latin zest. All the men wear sandals.

I will write again from Lisbon. Paulo, the young man driving us, is growing impatient! He also wears sandals!

How are adventures back at the Alexandria Club? Hola,

Salut! Hola! Mushi mushi! Hello!

Hello to all the guys back at the club! Wish you were here! How are things in Alexandria?

I have started a blog to keep you up to date with my adventures. I am currently heading for Barcelona to meet up with an old pal. The crew are very efficient and I will certainly hire these young fellows again. As the great man says, 'No time is lost watching men who know their business'.

I am at the minute on the poop with a good blanc in my hand; 1887, of course! The sun is baking me and I am in need of a good shower :). I may go below with some DVD disks I picked up in the Tunis bazaar. Aunt Pelagia had doubts as to whether they would work with my DVD player; it says 'multi-region' on the card-board container, so I am hoping they will.

Tunis was fantastic, as always. I am so glad Aunt Pelagia is happy there. After the death of her husband, Jorge (you will remember him from our Easter meet, 1993), she seemed so maudlin. Things are working out very well now, though. I have taken to calling her 'The Merry Widow', and she just laughs and laughs! There was one unfortunate incident which occurred between Demas and Esidor over a local young person, but that's all over with now and we're making good time for Barcelona. I have never been there, might one of you fellows send me the address of some friendlies and some other addresses? I am looking forward to a new adventure with my good friends and with good wine!

How are things back at the club? Did Cecil recover? And how is Andrew's pup? I hope you are living it up as I am. It is such a thing to be alive in these times. As another great man put it: 'All is permitted'. It is so hot! I am sweating with profusion! Time for a shower :).

Enjoy, boys!

From the High Seas,
