After today I will never say that Irish Gaelic is complicated, Welsh is way worst. Found a Portuguese Bakery in Cardiff @nataandco . Matei saudades das natas! It’s so sad that no other language has the translation for saudade, because today what I felt more was saudade from the Portuguese sea and food. Cardiff is worthy, though. Lovely Bay, small city, pleasant people and cheap.

"The Dream Hunters" by Neil Gaiman.
Love a graphic novel. Love a Neil Gaiman story. This one marks one of Gaiman's occasional forays back into the world of The Sandman, and one of the few I haven't managed to get my hands on until today (thanks to Cardiff Central Library).
The Dream Hunters is a faux Japanese fairytale concerning a fox and a badger who each take turns trying to trick a young monk into abandoning his solitary vigil at a small temple. Things start to get really interesting when the fox falls for the young man, who comes under threat from a mystic in Kyoto.
One of the things I love about Gaiman's work is how convincingly he blends original ideas with established tropes. Dream Hunters was so convincing that he received a series of queries from academics asking for his original sources.
Another highlight of this book is the art style and colouring (from P Craig Russell and Lovern Kindzierski, respectively), which do an excellent job of recreating the art of 18th century Japan.
In all, a gorgeous book. I just hate how easy it is to read comics and graphic novels in a single sitting...
