thought id do a quick tour of the bombsite formerly known as sunburn festival site . had a cruise round on my ‘chopper’ and took some great pics . only a few days ago there where 120,000 people passing thru here , now even the plastic scavengers have gone . there is little left . all the adjoining fields used for parking have been really well cleaned up now , just this final push being undertaken … but it looks like a bomb went off at some point ! not many people will see these images of the aftermath .

on the beach , heres a video here showing the new chronicle , thalassa greek restaurant , oltremarino , and our shack . pleased to report the rotten seaweed wasnt evident today phew , and people have returned to the sun beds . also the beach isnt anywhere near as busy , and it seems to be settling back down to sort of normal quieter numbers even tho the number of shacks has increased .

mrs went for a massage in asnath on the cliffs who do the best massages around , but while on the beach the licence officials and cops came to pay a special police visit for “sunbed checking” carrying their saws and sticks . one guy carried a makita electric chainsaw to cut any pesky unlicenced beds up . sadly there was no sawing or cutting of beds to report back – maybe a show of strength , a tourist show , or tea money collection ? lads get down baga its where all the bed action is lol . one guy almost ran to them and couldnt kiss their arse any more if he tried , brown tongue all the way baby . they spent some time in one of the shacks and the group of about a dozen left about 15 minutes later , smiles and secret handshakes galore πŸ˜‰
