I would very much like to go, but have no car this trip. Anyone willing and able to give me a lift to and from Olvera (Cadiz)? I will contribute to expenses, of course. Paul Collins

Really disappointed but we won’t be able to make Wednesday meet this week as we have a building problem at home that can only be fixed on Wednesday.
