FOOD AND WATER

DAY 21 Friday 21 September

 Limones, patatas, pimientos de Padron and lechuga.

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.

 Potatoes baked with lemon, garlic and red peppers followed by greengages.

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.
