Hi Anthony,

Nice account of your trip to the funeral of your friend, but there's something incongruous here. In London, drivers of 'Chelsea Tractors' or big 4X4s without towbars are reputed to add 'designer mud' to make them look like they've been used offroad.

After 2X200km of dirt road with boulders and wash-outs &c your vehicle looks like it's in a showroom. How did you manage that?

The little skirtsuit is nice, though

Ahhhhhh, you need water to make the dirt stick.
Note that I chose a dust coloured outfit, although if I wore black the end result would look the same.

Ah yes! That's why camels are dust coloured, too. Here in the nanoseconds between year-round downpours the best camouflage is either green or grey.

And in poor visibility it's amazing here how many drivers of green or grey cars don't stick their lights on.

I expect the 'Chelsea tractor off-roaders' use plenty of wet to apply their designer mud.

I noticed yesterday while the wearing of skirts by women here in NL is practically non-existent in the winter, the notable exception is women going to work. Naturally they are on a bike and so you see fairly tight skirts with pantyhose underneath cycling past. This is obviously just on the bit between home and work and cycling keeps you warm anyway.

I'm not sure people jogging past in leggings with a shirt that extends past the bum counts as a skirt/dress.

You occasionally see women with a coat/jacket that goes down to the knees. Sometimes you see a hint of fabric underneath which suggests a skirt, but who knows.

But there is definitely a distinct narrowing of the range. Perhaps they're worried about the wind catching wider skirts?
