Becalmed in Breda


Friday 27 July. As forecast, it was hot. How hot? The hottest area in Europe, is how hot. As intended, I stayed put, cleaned Big Al ready to move on, hung around the lake for a bit but eventually sought some relief indoors in the bar, next to a fan, got my laptop out and planned my next moves. And that’s it.

Hoped to see the lunar eclipse, but the clear sky before I had a shower had clouded over when I came out.

The weather forecasts have been very accurate and tomorrow they warn of thunderstorms for ten hours. I’m going nowhere.

It’s 23:00, the air is still and the van thermometer shows 30 inside and out. Bring on those storms.
