El Delivery!

Peter ScargillAnd the question I’ve been asking myself since I got here…. is there a CHANCE of delivery to the remote mountains here just outside of sunny rural Galera where our road doesn’t even show up on Google Earth?

The answer is a resounding YES. Last week I ordered a pair of blue solar wall lamps on EBAY from the UK  – payment was taken on 17th – I wrote to the fellow who sent them off, he thought that deliveries to Europe might take 15 days and yet mid-day today the package arrived in perfect condition by the postman – no problem! I’ve just had the drill out and mounted the lamps on either side of the living room window – it’s all down to time and sunshine Solar Lights on Bedrocknow.  I still plan to bring several solar spots back with me next time we’re over as I can’t see B&Q delivering…  Still – nice to know the postal system works.

Here you see the two new blue solar lanterns in action on the wall – indeed with the exception of the orange glow from inside, all the lighting you see outside (and more that you don’t) is solar the purple spot on the far wall is an infra-red light from my new IP-camera which will keep an eye on the place when we’re back in the UK.
