... the stadium, as did many other athletes before me . . . except, of course, that I was fully clothed and instead of running a race, I simply walked back with the others through the gardens to the archeological museum.

He left at 7.30 to pick up the car at 8am and by 11am he still wasn't back. I was hoping he was just lost – tried to call him from skype to my mobile that he had, but it wasn't on, txt him, ...
