I have a friend who live just outside Magaluf, where you have just been on holiday, he sent me a link to the online version of Magaluf's main newspaper - "Eesa Jokin". Front page headline:

"Who Was The Kaleun?"

Story reads:

The mood in downtown Magaluf is a sombre one tonight. The bars, normally packed with young British holiday makers and thumping music are quieter than normal. Restaurants report trade is down - the tourists and indeed the locals appear to have lost their appetite.

There is only one subject on everbody's lips, dominating conversation everywhere you go - "Who was the Kaleun?"

A local Senorita said "He charmed all the girls with his tales of convoy attacks on the high seas. We were all mesmerised by him, happily answering the children's questions about his U-boat and they'd squeal with laughter when he cried out playfully "Crash Dive!" and they'd roll into the dusty gutters". She later admitted, "My husband he get a quite jealous and notta speak to me for two whole days, all because I smile at the nice Kaleun when he buy his English newspaper in our store one day"

Claiming to be on well deserved leave from the stormy Atlantic with some of his crew, he bought lightness to every <STRIKE>bar and club he got drunk in </STRIKE> shop and market stall he visited here on the sunshine isle, and took time to <STRIKE> chat up as many females as possible</STRIKE>converse with the local traders and their families.

"Hw wassa a breath of fresh air, we were sorry to see him go" said one cleaner of the exclusive apartment in the Hotel that the Kaleun <STRIKE>rarely made it back to, instead crashing on the beach until sunrise</STRIKE> chose as his base for his vacation. "He liked to use the hotel PC, he was keen to keep in touch with his family back home - what a lovely boy - we haven't let anybody else touch the PC since then, and neither have we dared clean it" she said wistfully, picking at her blackened teeth with her even blacker nails.

So the sun sets tonight on a community left in awe, in wonder, wondering exactly who this enigmatic Kaleun was who chose Magaluf in particular to <STRIKE>down drinks torpedo style until they spilled from his ears </STRIKE> rest and recuperate, to forget the fog, rain and wind of BF17 and demanding crew management. The locals, and tourists alike, are better off for his visit, but worse off for his leaving it would seem.

Allegdly, his parting words "I have to get back to my Periscope" merely adds to the mystery of what this man was all about.

This is <STRIKE>RealJambo </STRIKE> Er, someone, reporting from Magaluf, in Spain for <STRIKE> The SH3 Forum</STRIKE> er, the BBC. And Reuters. And CNN. And ABC. And some others.

Can you tell I was always wanted to be a news journalist? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Laughing with you Goose, not at you.
