Oct 19 Wednesday

Went to Montauban and had my hair cut: the barber much annoyed because dinner had ×××× [indecipherable] just been served, but did it silently and swiftly cutting away much too much.
In afternoon Anita, Juan, Juanita, Francisca, Miguel, Joanna1 & her husband from Tours came.
Francisca & Juan danced a bolero2 to the rest of us singing & me banging a drum.
