I am watching the rain pur down at Wimbledon whilst sat in temperatures in the mid-30s that feel like early 40s. Rain does make England green, but I'm sure that friends and family back home would prefer a little sun as well!

Here, in Sedella, the only greenery on the brown hills are the vines, almond and algorroba trees. Málaga still looked lush when I popped in yesterday. The palms and sub-tropical plants that line the road to and around the port offered shade and a pleasing sight.
