avis had forgotten to say that their north terminal car rental base no longer exists
trying not to panic after three fruitless circuits, we were back in a lengthening queue at a manic roundabout
from the corner of my eye & through the open window, i saw, on the verge, in a tiny triangle of verdure, a little brown bird that crouched and glared at me, almost close enough to touch, whilst pure & penetrating music gushed from his throat
not a sparrow, but a skylark !
what better omen for the start of a memorable holiday ?
