Dear Everybody

Thought that you might like to know that your favourite third-year gang from last year did finally make it to Majorca We've really been letting our hair down after all the stress of finals. Lots and lots of sangria and late-night clubbing !!!.

It wasn't so sunny yesterday so we all hired bicycles and set off to see the place where the poet Robert Graves used to live (Have you heard of him?). We didn't find his house but we did find a little secret path down to a lovely beach with a great fish restaurant, lovely swimming off the rocks, and
NO GERMANS .

The hotel is quite good but very noisy because it's near the middle of Palma and you only get one bread roll and a portion of butter for breakfast.

By the way, on the plane over here we read an article in the Times about a man who sued his university for a lot of money because the course that he took was nothing like the one described in the brochure.

Jessica (whose brother is a lawyer) thought that we had quite enough evidence to do the same. Apparently we have to inform you of our wish to sue so could you take this postcard as an indication of intent.

Enjoy your own hols

Hasta luego
