Went shopping as usual. Christina phone – she couldn’t get here because the buses are on strike!!! For the last 5 days the metro, buses and trains have been on strike intermittently. It's all over another austerity move - to take about 500 euros from the metro workers monthly pay of 2500 euros. Worked on getting the February Supply order in. Elks stopped by with more new bedding for the missionary apartment downstairs. Elks stayed for supper and we ordered in Chinese food that was pretty good. It was another dreary day with some rain and a little bit of sunshine here and there – quite cool though.
