... and since they have Netflix we decide to watch something. Somehow this evening really is just like being home in Hanwell. We pretty much spend about 45 minutes deciding what to watch, starting and stopping a few movies before we finally set on something that is not that good either J. And then we discuss who will do the dishes.

Get to the address at almost 3am and ring several times. Mind you this is a 24hr hostel. The guy was sleeping and told me to go away as they had no beds so after telling him he did he told me to go away again.
Old mate in the shuttle was nice enough to wait ...
