Thankfully, after the manic run-around on Sunday, we had a relatively quiet day yesterday, lazing around in the morning (well, I didn’t get to bed til way past 2am…:)), and then doing the final ‘shop’ – for coffee to take back to the UK (Simon’s taking home 5 kilos!!!), and just a chance to re-fuel for the final meeting Tuesday evening.
It’s been a very necessary ‘breather’, as. although Wednesday we head home, the flights a pretty gruelling, even when you like flying as much as I have for the last 30 years. And, of course, before that, the dreaded packing…
So Monday afternoon and evening, we went to eat, then to the cinema – ‘Thor’ and then ‘Captain Phillips’ back to back. I’d like to tell you that ‘Thor’ was good, but I only saw about 15 minutes of it, but it WAS one of the best sleep’s I’ve had for a long time. Well, the ‘preferencial’ seats, which cost peanuts compared to home, are very comfortable, you can stretch and spread out, and it is dark… 🙂 – but I couldn’t possibly have slept through ‘Captain Phillips’ – a real edge of the seat film well worth watching.
So into Tuesday….la ultima dia de reuniones – the last day of meetings…..
