September 24th was the day when the rain finally fell after the long hot Ibiza summer. It wasn’t as dramatic as the usual’Gota Fria’, (we’ve still got that to come!), but it cooled everything down at last to a comfortable 24 degrees. As I write it’s 20 degrees at midnight and I’m wearing jeans…

If only everybody out there knew about the beauty of Ibiza in the winter… but, then again maybe not, we’re a very lucky and possessive lot trying to keep it secret by telling everyone the island’s shut – when it’s not…
