“My God I could get used to this you know said Michael to his friend.

“Why don’t you buy a place then I’m sure that could buy a mansion out here for five grand.”

“You would still have enough money to last you thirty years if you spend it wisely or invest in other property like me and make money hiring out to tourists.

“Most of these apartments have their own swimming pools so you cannot go wrong.”

 Okay you have convinced me; tomorrow I will look for a place near the beach. Even though the place has a pool people still like to come down and play in the sand.”

“What do you want to do tonight then my amigo?

“I thought we could visit Los Americas; I hear they have some great night cubs there.”

“Fine by me.”

“Okay lets go an buy so me gear to wear and then we can hit the town around nine thirty after we have both eaten something said Michael as the walked along the promenade.

When they came to a shop that they liked they both went in and had a look around.

Michael bought himself a pair of white trousers brown lattice type shoes that could be worn with out socks.

He also bought himself a read skin tight tee shirt that showed off his athletic body.

Johnny bought a Bermuda shirt and a pair of jeans he just kept the sandals that he had to wear.”

“When I leave here on Friday or is it Thursday I going to spend a hundred quid on clothes and take them home with me.”

“You had better buy a suitcase to put them all in then.”

“Yes I never thought of that.”

“The Spanish girl wrapped his clothes for him and he paid her les than ten pounds.

“Donada” said the girl as they left the shop then walked back to the hotel.

“The maid had been she had cleaned, changed the sheets, and the towels not that the place was dirty. Michael showered first then had a shave. The black roots were starting to appear in his hair and he looked in the mirror and though that the black almost lent itself to the style. He would however dye it again before leaving for England.

“Do you want a beer before we head out?

“Are you not having a shower?

“I had one this morning Michael.”

“So did I, but I’ve had another.”

“Are you on the pull again like?

“Get it whilst it’s there mate that’s what I say.
