Walk 1.5 kilometres to a local produce market, forget you’re only there to get one thing, buy a 2 L bottle of juice, 1/2 watermelon, a bag of cherries, a package of sausages, some puff pastry, and a bunch of golden beets, and then walk home carrying it all.

At least I was wearing a wide-brimmed hat and a light dress. As it was, when I got home I was sweating like mad and ready to collapse. On the plus side, the juice (store-made lemonade/iced tea blend) is delicious, and all the fruit looks amazing.
