Graham here, and I've just come back from a wonderul holiday in Portugal. Well done Paul! I was in Lisbon most of the time, though we hired a car and visited some of the historic places (Tomar, Batalha, Evora) nearby. It was a great holiday, but we did see a lot of the burnt forestland - quite a tragedy!
Caroline, you say you like detectives and mystery stories. Is Sherlock Holmes your favourite detective? Can you recommend any good mystery books?
