... I recognised the accent, so I start chatting to the guy. Get this… He’s South African, he studied at my university – which is a coincidence – and more than that, he studied the same as me, but a few years after me! Him and his friend were really nice, so we chatted to them for a while before heading to bed – another incredible day in the bag!!
With sore heads we wake up in the morning. Time to check out of our plush ...
