a few of us went to dinner in my hotel last night. the food, wine and company were excellent. so much so, in fact, that i didn't get to bed until 01:30 this morning. now i was meant to be up and at my first session by 06:30, but to be brutally honest, i didn't make it. a pity as it would have been good.. but i am on holiday after all!

the reason i can easily upload messages and pictures so easily is that lotus have provided us with a wireless network so i can type pretty much wherever i sit down. more later today.
