Having a few pesetas left, I found a table, and soon there was a girl beside me, whispering wooingly in broken English, full of instant charm and lies.
Have you ever walked out of your house for an adventure that will take you who knows where?
If you’ve ever busked in a foreign land to make enough for a meal and some wine, come tell us about it. How did you arrange you tip hat?
Join me tomorrow Friday at noon on my Goldster book show to discuss Laurie Lee’s magical classic As I Walked Out One Summer’s Morning.
Tell us what you know of Laurie Lee’s Spain, Cadiz, Seville, Madrid and the plains, mountains, heat and weather in between
And Laurie Lee on Madrid … Counting London, it was only the second major city I’d seen, and I slipped into it as into the jaws of a lion. It had a lion’s breath, too; something fetid and spicy, mixed with straw and the decayed juices of meat.
