Yesterday and today the pharmacies have been on strike. This is in protest against the government's proposal to allow medicines to be sold in supermarkets. I'm all for the right to protest but the middle of the tourist season, when a lot of visitors will be in need of pills for upset stomachs or help regarding heat exhaustion, seems a funny time to do it, as such medication cannot be purchased elsewhere here. [There are emergency pharmacies open in each town, but they're hard to find if you do not know your way around.]
