Had a decent sleep, even though it felt like I was sleeping on boards. Probably good for me anyway. Breakfast was a boiled egg, bread roll and a kind of croissant with butter and jam, a freshly squeezed orange juice and a heart starter coffee. Actually that's the type of breakfast I prefer.

Loek invited me to join him on the rooftop afterwards, though we ended up in his private quarters comparing notes of film making.
When I said I was tired and off to bed, he invited me to stay and sleep with him...whoops, I was taken by surprise and didn't react, said the children were waiting for me and mumbled a sleepy farewell.
