On searching for sunglasses

I bought two pairs of sunglasses in England last time I was there.

For Autumn in Germany they were fine.

However. They’re no match for the Spanish/Canaries sun. Especially when my pupil right is artificially kept wide open (far wider than if I’m trying to see something in the dark) by the eye drops. The sunlight hurts, even through the sunglasses.

They are apparently ‘category 3’. I asked every beach shop if they had category 4, in the hope that they’d be darker, but none of them did. In the end, I settled for a pair of hot pink rimmed 3s, with mirrored effect… They are my new best friend, and I don’t go anywhere without them, including supermarkets and museums…

I also got a ridiculously wide brimmed hat.

Good thing I’m not all that self conscious…
