Sizzling Sunday

The UK is basking in its longest heat wave in 5 years, and yesterday was particularly hot. I took a long slow bike-ride, passing two of Falmouth's main beaches, which looked splendid under a clear blue sky.

Jon, along with 10,000 other cyclists, was enduring the 88 mile Velothon Sportive in Wales, said to be the most spectacular cycling event in UK, with temperatures over 30 C enhancing the challenge of the elevation gain of over 5000 feet.

Amanda, meanwhile, was relaxing in Zambia, at the Avani Victoria Falls Resort in Livingstone. This is Amanda's first visit to the land of her birth since she left Chingola in 1973 as a one-year old. She is representing MEI at the SAIMM Copper-Cobalt Africa conference, which begins this evening.
