2006-05-26 : Brief respite for liver recovery

The tour's going extremely well, with the exception of some fairly rubbish rain arrangements. It hammered down Wednesday and disrupted our tour with the Westminster Men, it was a lovely day yesterday when the Adelaide men went off to France, and now today it's bucketing down again. Go England !!

So anyway, following Moulton we tripped about the Cotswolds a bit, stopping in such lovely villages as Badby, Hinton-in-the-Hedges, Moreton-in-Marsh, Longborough, Bampton, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, and Bledington. It just amazes me how beautiful this country is, and how far (or rather how close) you have to go to start seeing some really pretty stuff. I reckon I ought to start taking my Londonny visitors out to see this kind of thing in future.

We stopped on the Monday night in Broadway as the guest of the Gloucestershire Morris Men and had a good bit of a danceout there, followed by a singalong. The following night we were in Ducklington at the behest of the eponymous team, and were joined by the Brackley Men, the Kirtlington Men, the Queen Emma's Morris… and I think that was it.

So now, in the pissing rain, we're off to Canterbury, then on to Rye. I'd best pack my inflatable liferaft I think.
