DAY 21 Friday 21 September
I shop here nearly everyday - food doesn’t keep fresh for long- perhaps it’s the heat. Fruit and vegetables are tasty and cheap, but fish and cheese seem to be more expensive. Lemons are sold by weight.
I return to the ‘Kindness of Strangers’ and ‘Naiads’ series today; the new Ox-ear Hair brush has a nice loose, watery quality.
The bottle contains water from a spring about a mile away; el Fuente de Berra. I walked there and a small boy took my plastic bottle to fill it - a precious memory.
I drank the water with lunch; lemon baked potatoes with fresh mackerel.
