This is the time of year when we get the most spectacular sunsets. It's a combination of the angle of the sun plus a scattering of clouds that blow up around 5 o'clock. Every evening is yet another glorious show of color. I'll check out the view from Dago's tonight.
The other news is that Fernando and his crew have finished (well, almost) the new wall and it looks quite good. What's left is a bit more painting and the gate, which is being built by a local carpenter and may be ready as soon as Tuesday.

Tomorrow's opera is Rossini's Le Comte Ory, a delightful bel canto comedic piece with the incomperable Juan Diego Flórez in the title role. The Countess Adèle is being sung by a young South African soprano named Pretty Yende. Hear them both in a rehearsal for this performance here. It might tempt you to tune in. I'll be front and center myself.
