Titbits of interesting info

Parking: Between 30 to 40 of the new parking spaces at Las Salinas beach will be covered to provide shade to keep cars cool out of the blazing sun and the cost for parking will vary from €2 to €5 per day. Expect footballer's open top Saabs to occupy all the covered spaces!

Traffic: The amount of traffic on the roads of Ibiza town, Spain's smallest municipality, increases fourfold during the summer from 25,000 to 100,000 cars per day. The busiest time is 7PM to 9PM when workers are going home and tourists are leaving the beaches and heading into town to dine.

Murphy's Law: The cops in San Jose spent all morning without the use of computers last week when new programs were being loaded onto their machines. Just as the programs were finalising, one of our all too frequent power cuts wiped out the memory and they had to start all over again.
