We were a little early and the room wasn't ready but an upgraded room was nearly ready so we were moved into that, without even asking.

From the bar we headed to a club and danced the rest of the night away. In the early morning we caught the bus back as far as we could, and then walked the rest, talking and laughing and happy to be alive.
