My yahoo page constantly bombards me with calls to escape the English weather and head to Spain. Is it cooler there? Because we are all dying of heat stroke here. Nonetheless, Tommaso, Filippo and I enjoyed a wander about Oxford yesterday afternoon, and dinner on Banbury Road. This morning, finally, the welcome rain arrived, but it is still quite warm.

Glad you are making the most of the warm weather in Oxford! I'm on the East coast and the North Sea is always icy, when when there is some sunshine :-(

Have you tried the country walks around Oxford yet? Especially the Cotswolds? I suppose it's boring compared to the glaciers of New Zealand!

About Spain... If you google "madrid temperature" you get the daily forecast in Spain for today and the next 3 days. Today:

Current: Clear
Wind: NW at 2 mph
Humidity: 19%

Googling you google "Oxford temperature" gives for today (Sat 4 July):

Current: Clear
Wind: SW at 5 mph
Humidity: 53%

Therefore, you're way better off where you are regarding the temperature and the breeze, although you have much higher humidity than in Spain.
