Yesterday, Pam and I were mulling over the hours of daylight that we enjoy here in Spain in comparison with those in the UK.
We still remember getting up in the dark to go to work and then going back home when it was dark again. It was one of the main reasons we hated winters. At least when the country went back to daylight saving we didn't arrive at school in the dark – those days were awful.
Even in the winter, there are sufficient hours of daylight (8:15 until 6pm) in the south of Spain to keep us happy.
