We then headed off with a couple of the people from the bar, including NGO Bob from Holland and Willem the freelance finance guy from Cape Town, to the famous fish market. Here you enter the market, purchase any number and ...
... amazing. We have been working here all day and have enjoyed it all. The MC were lovely enough to make us Lunch and initiate us in the evening with drinking games to welcome us as MC CEEDers (10 shots each, went straight to my head)
All in all a great day and great welcome from the MC and I look forward to working with these guys over the next coming weeks. Now I just need to make it home safely... then climb those stairs...
