in both places, it is not equal day and night. its a mystery to me, but i am sure there is a scientific explanation for it. haha. but if i were living in madrid now, i would get sunrise at 8.04am. so since i just woke up , and it is now 8.07am, it would be quite dark out there, with the sun just risen. instead it is bright sunlight  now with the sun peeping over the roof top of the block in front of my lounge window. i would find it very weird really, and it is going to get worse as winter comes, or maybe not, i dont know how madrid will be affected when the clocks go back… on oct 27.

in 2021 or 22, the EU will implement their new policy about clocks not changing. so look out for fun and games then, all this can really do your head in dont you think?

only the canary islands (of all the places in spain)keep the same time as uk.

it is so near the equator , it is practically always 12 hrs long day andnight all year round.

added 9.31am victoria station, knots pretzal

i redeem that voucher for a free pretzal , and when i asked what i can get for that, the first helper said anyone , but before i could chose one of the bacon pretzal, another lady came who looked like the boss, and she said i can only get the cinnamon one. even then from force of habit, she said what do i chose…anyway since i have never tasted any of the pretzals, this one is new to me. it is coated with suger, but they warm it up in a microwave first so it is quite warm and soft. its costs about £3.40, and is the cheapest item. oh, i just remembered, this must be what they call invasion of privacy, in that they can get access to you via your logging onto their wifi. but to me, i am all for it. haha. if they all give me free samples of their products that is a good thing. 

Digital StillCamera

i took a bite out of it before i remember to take a photo of it.

added 7.52pm 16C rain . i read in the papers of a fire in a chinatown restaurant on sunday. i was there, and saw the road blocked at the eastern end of gerrard st, i thought it was road works, but it seems early on sunday morning about 9am it started, there was a fire on the 2nd floor of the restaurant at the corner there. it is new chinatown restaurant. by 2pm when i was there, the fire was out, because there was no smoke that is why i did not think that a fire had happened there.
