Fuerteventura:: VIII

It has been hot and sunny here for the past few days, well into the 30s. I was at the beach yesterday.

I dined at a tiny Italian bistro called - I think - Lori del Mar - where I had herb garlic bread, meat ravioli with a walnut sauce and a glass of wine; followed by Panna Cotta for dessert. The bill came to about €20.

On a completely different topic, I am unimpressed by Tesco's new cardboard sandwich containers (doubtless introduced in lieu of the serviceable transparent plastic ones in order to "save the planet"; some brilliant directive from the European Union imposed on the UK).

I bought a packet of cheese and onion sandwiches from them for my journey to Fuerteventura. They were in my holdall, which had been pushed and shoved a few times inevitably during transit.

When I brought the cardboard pack out, it had split and some of the cheese filling and stained some items in the holdall.

I doubt if this would have occured with the former plastic pack.

Tesco: either strengthen your cardboard; make it more robust and less flimsy; or revert to the plastic, transparent packs as before.

I cannot believe such an attrocity has occurred. Tesco must be brought to account for this. VC

Ha ha! Well spoken, VC. Perhaps I am being a trifle petty, though it was an irritant at the time!
