Okay, a quick one before I hit the road. I made myself a little playlist of some of the songs I have listened to whilst walking along or lying on the beach over the past week. I guess it’s quite summery without being overtly Una Paloma Blanca.
I watched Hertha Berlin v Schalke 04 on ESPN Brasil a couple of nights ago and saw that the Olympiastadion was full of people in coats, gloves, scarves, and hats. Apart from it being weird seeing a little bit of Berlin for the first time since I left, it did hit home a bit that I’m lucky to be over here in a warm sunny place in March. When I say “lucky,” though, I probably mean “smug.”
Here’s a mix cobbled together from a few of the songs from my Sunny in Brazil playlist that hopefully might make you north Europeans feel like the sun is already shining in your heart. Hope you enjoy it.
