... was already out so I just met up with her and we had some drinks and a dance instead. We went to the grimy hostel bar but it was super fun as there was one of The Ministry of Sound DJ's performing. The music was so good. All remixes of our favourite songs and songs that you can actually sing along to. It was heaving, our 'friend' was working behind the bar, the one we travelled with and she ignored me. Isn't it funny how some people get? Well it's no skin off my nose. I ...

... He really understands that you have come down just to fly, so he handles the flight plans and just lets you have fun flying--it was GREAT!!
Once we got back to Pete's hangar, we took some pictures of some of his other planes, his hangar museum that is done up with WWII stuff and is really neat even for non-pilots to enjoy. I of course had to purchase some souvenir items from Julie, as well as pay my flight bill, and ...
