"At Least I Didn't Whistle" [Mr Martinez Part Twenty Six]

Short and bitter (like me)... Image author's own terrible photography.

"Somewhere Full of Guiris" [Mr Martínez Twenty Five]

The Wild Rover Irish Pub in Barcelona is a much better place than I've made it sound, or at least it was when I was last there around 10 years ago. Image is a detail from a blog post illustration and has no copyright issues: source is https://www.barcrawlbarcelona.com/top-10-pubs-in-barcelona/

"You Can Keep The Scissors"[Mister Martínez part twenty-four]

Like Martínez, I'm still moving, so I'm still living. Image source Google Maps 2015. Think we're ok. No Coke-fiends at the Cafe as far as I know.

You have done some research. However, the RPI changed its name in 1883, or rather reopened under another name that year. 

"In September 1881, the Royal Polytechnic Institution closed, marking a transition to new ownership and a new era...

Gold digger alert! We men are such fools, I imagine Donald believes Melania finds him irresistible, (just like Ivana and Marla did too).

is definitely the area to mine for your writing. Convincing; it certainly had me in the classroom (probably in a disappearing seat).

I think Jack's picked up on a couple of things, (I admit I didn't notice them).
