The wind’s been howling like a heartbroken wolf; the weather map on the Spanish met office site has stayed an appropriate canary yellow for most of the last couple of weeks; the waves have been clearing coastal defences like Grand National winners and some divine being keeps emptying his potty over most of the island and it sounds as though there’s a plague of Sammy Davis Juniors on my roof. That can mean only one thing; hold on a sec whilst I turn on my television…..

Just as I thought; channel after channel of people dressed in grotesquely bright costumes with painted faces making kazoo noises whilst they sing a tuneless ditty which lasts for hours; it’s the attack of the ‘murgas’…Carnaval is nearly upon us!
