Saturday, July 29
We had our first bit of rain in what seems like weeks today, this soon cleared the streets and kept us busy. Being a Saturday afternoon the usual flock of Goths were moping in the town square in front of the forum. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I went past when the rain was at its heaviest there was a gaggle of Goths playing football, now for a group of people who abhor any form of physical activity this seemed really strange (breathing usually stresses them too much) I even thought I saw one smile. But when I passed later after the rain had stopped things were back to normal they were back in the shadows hiding from the light and looking suitably suicidal again.
