unbelievable

You'll remember last time, Brendan attempted to float to Turkey on a lilo with two Japanese girls. That was the last I saw of him.

Well, I was just downstairs at the hotel's Spam and Bread collection point when I saw Brendan, Yoko and Yappy on the TV, on a Greek breakfast show news item. The girls were sobbing in the background, huddled in those silver hyperthermia blanket things, and Brendan was being interviewed. There was a Greek translation voiceover for the natives, but you could just about make out what he was saying in English, underneath...

"The birds were in difficulty, so I dove off the rocks and swam out, but by the time I made it to them we were all caught in a massive rip. I knew we wouldn't make it back to Samos, so I was trying to head for the Turkish mainland. I had to keep re-inflating the lilo, too. It was bloody touch and go there for a while, mate."

Then the camera turned to the Greek fisherman who'd obviously hauled them out of the sea. He'd just started speaking when Brendan's forearm came into shot, his hand grasping the fisherman's and giving it a long, vigorous shake. You couldn't hear him at this point, but I bet you a billion quid I know what he was saying.

back in Blighty tomorrow
Duncan
