Dusty, heat-beaten tracks, walking in the shade, whirring grasshoppers and cicadas, washing drying within an hour, plant-watering on a vast scale, siestas rather than hot water bottle naps, endless salad, fridge full of chilling water . . . and dogs trying to keep cool rather than wishing to be buried in wool on the most draft-proof chair.
'Bali' on an early morning walk under evergreen oaks and olive.
