Ringing the changes for breakfast - Jerry had the continental (all kinds of cheese and meat and a particularly odd looking sausage) and I had the French (bit of a shock when you're expecting a croissant and it's full of chocolate, but managed to struggle through more than I should).
And I realised who the restaurant guy is - he's the creepy man you'd expect to open the front door if you visited Dracula's castle! I haven't seen him smile at all, but now suspect it's to ...
