Looks like sunburn country to me!
The manservant has been in Chile this week – playing astro-dweeb. He sent me this photo which he took on one of his afternoon walks on the mountain. I have not been to Chile but look forward to a trip in the next few years. Who could resist such an enticing landscape?
When I was a teenager, my friends and I, used to slather ourselves in baby oil and roast in the sun. This was especially funny as we were hundreds & hundreds of miles from a beach!
But, the cost of this folly can be felt for many years after the fun is over. I had the first "sunspot" burnt off my nose when I was in my late 20's. When I was 30 I had a "nasty" cut out from the hairline on my temple and then a couple of years after that, another cut out of my scalp. Last year I had one cut out on my chest – it looked just like a pimple – the scar is much bigger!
For many years now I have been vigilant in stripping off for a dermatological yearly check and I have always come away with nitrogen burns on my face, shoulders and arms – one trip a couple of years ago I had 17 "spots" burnt off my face! (I had a seat all to myself on the metro for a week after that!).
A couple of weeks ago I had this year's check and for the first time in all those years, I left the doctor's without a single thing needing to be burnt or cut!!
Summer is coming to America and I will be slip, slop, slapping!!
