Already in Madrid three days since arriving Saturday morning and sliding across town on the Metro to walk into Dasniya’s weekend Shibari workshop, Michael and Gala both there also. We four are together this week (and they three last week also) at Compagñia Nacional de Danza de Españia, around 20 minutes walk from here, starting mid-morning and fleeing just before security would kick us out at 19h.

The sky is empty blue, dry and hot like Adelaide. Proper summer, that is.
