text: Castle has arranged five big chests to be made for me. They are of hard wood as one cannot get a soft kind here, and very heavy, but they are solid and my collection should be securely contained in them. With the heat reaching 32o celsius I started the tedious packing. It was no fun. The weather continues to be unusually good and dry.
