    ... blockos and private parties (Camarotes) lining the route

    We were fortunate enough to go to all three with the highlight being the Camarote that we went to on the Friday night where we had a prime view of the action whilst we were waited on hand and foot by the waiters.

Sometimes I just write a big long page of disconjointed nonsense, and I even make up words like disconjointed because I don't have time to look up words.
