54: Wicker Roof

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 31, 2007

Glad to be leaving Spain behind, though worried about Carston’s friend. Do you recall Theroux ever putting himself in this much jeopardy? Thought not…

The Outlaw

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 31, 2007

The outlaw

I am Dawn Siobhan Jones, 27, an outlaw from Coventry. But I’ll be a good one, a Robin Hood type figure. I’ll give lots to the poor.

This very morning I bought a homeless woman a large bouquet of flowers.

Love & light,
Dawn x

Hidey Low

Posted by Ian Jones on July 31, 2007

Camouflage

I do not like hiding.

I liked it better when we were on a quest. It’s better to be going at something rather than from it. Best of all is to be in your own room, doing and making, at your own pace. But those days are gone.

I feel a bit twitchy and we’ve got no pop to settle my nerves.

53: ‘King Prawn of Alicante’

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 30, 2007

When I first started out as a documentary film maker I made a list of things I would never do even for a great story:
1. Put the lives of my immediate family in danger
2. The human trafficking of children
3. Have sex with a woman who marks less than 4/10
4. Black up in inner city areas
5. Sleep rough
6. Eat directly from a tin.
Looks like I’m going to have to revise the last two.

Spiritual guidance

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 30, 2007

Camping out with Carston

Tonight I tilt my head toward the blanket sky of night & wish upon a star as countless others have done before me. I throw out pleas for guidance to the cosmos. Spiritual guidance not geographical – I know we’re in Spain, I can tell by the onions.

Love & Light

The Art of War

Posted by Ian Jones on July 30, 2007

Ians bandages

I put a bit of yoghurt on my wound and that was quite soothing and I don’t think it needs stitches as the cardi took most of the impact.

Third sense

Boat/Bullets

Posted by Ian Jones on July 28, 2007

Carstons knife

Carston has a knife with a pig on it. When he first landed in Spain he only
ate things he killed under his own steam, like dogs and seagulls and once a
horse when he was desperate. This is why he values luxury now, he says.

49: Looking for Carston Whelk

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 26, 2007

Dawn and Ian are on the hunt for their next sibling. I don’t know if it’s the balmy weather or the cocktails but I’m finding that Alicante is a genuinely friendly place.

Giddy Lightweight

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 25, 2007

Ian's bed head

Ian’s getting grumpy. He needs his sleep but refuses to take it. I’m sick of being the bad guy.

When he gets giddy, it’s all very endearing for the onlooker but the buck stops here. An old Spanish woman was encouraging his behaviour yesterday, kept clapping him, so I sent him to live with her. She soon sent him back – only lasted 10 minutes, lightweight.

Love & light,

Dawn x
