... a headache so bagged any alcohol which was not the end of the world. The LB tried to pour some wine for U/K with the top on. Favourite cities was the topic to conclude things. Dinner dragged on for more than two hours. Half of them, with nothing better to do, are still in the restaurant.
Ian had been able to get wifi but I've tried near reception to no avail. Will try in Greece tomorrow. Need an aspirin and a good night's sleep. Bagged out after 2130.
