20/01/2020 Back home in the Charente.
Maximum temperature in the Charente today 7C, minimum 0C. Dry today, but 31mm of rain so far this month. 26km/h North-Easterly wind, with very icy gusts up to 57 km/h.
I still have many South African photos to work my way through but I have been feeling very down this week and have got far behind with everything. Think I caught a bug at a meeting Saturday before last. The meeting was held by the mayor and over 200 people attended, many of who were coughing!!! I am now feeling a bit better but the cough is back as usual when I pick these bugs up. I will get back to RSA photos very soon.
