I finally visited the optician today and got a clean bill of "eye" health. But, more importantly, a pair of eye protecting sun specs was ordered. They've promised to have them ready before I leave. Let's see how good thay are at keeping up to their promises.
I was going to have secured some currency today too but that slipped off the end of my "to-do" list. Maybe Saturday!
Next on the purchase list is some suitable head-gear: perhaps a cool looking Panama? Not a big fan of hats but sun protection is a MUST.
