Caroline has had an 18-year-old Spanish girl to teach for the past fortnight. Maria today returns to Valencia, glad to say goodbye to what she perceives as "normal" English Summer weather. In fact, it seems to be on the turn - from Thursday evening, we've had no rain and some little warmth. So I'm off to plant some more French beans, as urged by the gardening experts. And tomorrow we welcome a couple of more cheerful-looking Japanese High School girls, Yuka and Haruka.
