... us to see compared with the last time, according to Margaux.
We watched awkwardly until the national anthem was finished, and we went back home, conscious of me having an early morning for the plane. Margaux went back out to watch the rest of the game at Wudaokou, taking the room key, while I slept. She crept in early the next morning, but I was too tired to ask about the result.
