... for me in Burger King, also feeling slightly worse for wear after staying out too late the previous night. After some chicken nuggets and ice cream we headed outside to catch a taxi to Chris' flat. When we got there we sat around outside waiting for Chris to let us in; he had been out since 6am collecting a new girl, Julia, who is to teach Spanish at Chris' school, from the airport and helping her find stuff like bedding for her room in the apartment.
