Sure no problem. That's why I said "sunniest part of the day" and not "hottest" by the way.

Remember that while the sun is directly overhead the UK at 12 midday (GMT), Spain is further west so it's later than that. Add on the fact that spain is an hour ahead in clock time (plus an extra hour for summer time) then the sun is at its strongest here at approx 3pm - dependng on how far east/west you are.

OK .... so far I have worked out from various threads that I should only go out at night, I should smother myself in tomato sauce and dress in rubberwear. My question is ..... will I ever make any new friends?
