... a pet budgie just chillen, and then when Jade and I asked where the bathroom was, we were taken up 4 flights of stairs into darkness to the newly refurbished part that wasn't quite complete. I don't think they get many girls at the bar. When it hit the early hours of the morning we opted for a taxi home. The taxi cost £3.

9. Turkish coffee, Turkish Delight, Nougat, Raki and Kebabs
