    ... garantee a seat. So i was to take the bus instead. It's a fantastic building, as is the Southern Railways head office building next to it. Nearby is the Ripon building. This huge white building was built by the British during our 250 years here in the days of the British Empire. Originally we came as traders but ended up staying as conquerers and governors. As a result there are various buildings and structures that not only still stand, but are still in use today. ...

    After I checked ...

    ... we pay our room bill. We paid yesterday, we explain, by cash...in order not to waste time this morning. No, he is insistent they don't take cash he wants our credit card despite the fact that Ian point out that our receipt clearly says 'balance zero'. Ian is starting to get irritated.

    The drive to the airport takes ...

    ... he said I could take the photo so I was just about to when I felt this very warm, wet slap on the back of my neck! Thinking it was some kind of creature (yeah, I wish) I let out a little scream and asked mum to see what it was... a bird had shat on me from a great height and it had splattered all over my neck!!!
