Arrived by 3am
Found a small hotel leaving Algesiras.
Slept in something more like a shelter than a house.
Anyway, we were dead so.
A quick breakfast "con un bocadillo de jamòn y un cafe solo por favor"

Those shorts are more outrageous than the trousers




Any pics of the bar between the varios? Was thinking of some such arrangement myself.

not where u can see it clearly.

but it's a simple tube, the one u have to support curtains on the kitchen window... see ?

you bend the 2 extremities and flatten them. with a flame, of course.
you bend slitghly the tube as the one on the GSA.
to make it sort-of like a spring.
holes and fast attach and here you are.
black paint is a plus for discretion.
