The main event during the last week of November was Thanksgiving. As we do 
every year, we invited about 15 of our local friends for a Thanksgiving dinner. 
They find the traditional dishes very exotic, and of course the turkey is the 
main attraction, along with the various side dishes and pecan pie (I dislike 
pumpkin, so the pumpkins are just for decoration, not human consumption)—and of 
course copious amounts of wine. It all started a week earlier, when my wife set 
up the large table in our covered front terrace and the work continued during 
the week with shopping, preparation of what could be made in advance, etc. We 
had the dinner on Thursday night, not the most convenient day given that it is 
just a normal working day, as is the following day. But my wife wants it to be 
as close to a US Thanksgiving as possible, so it is done on the day.

Besides Thanksgiving, I also tested another film in the Adox HR developer that 
I am considering making my standard developer for all films. This week it was 
Fuji Acros, in my Leica M2, using my lovely colleague Eri and the new crop of 
trainees as my test subjects. I continue to find that people really relate to 
these B&W portraits of them shot using a camera and lens that were both 
produced by the craftsmen (and women) of Wetzlar before any of them were born.

Finally, there is also an evening walk in Alicante to look at the lights of the

And as always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
