Stayed at Malc's last night, he's in Mexico for the weeknd, and we stayed up playing cards and drinking. Got a few hours sleep and then got up to watch our nightmares being played out on the football pitch.

Laura just thinks that it's a dive, but she's been here for over 2 years. It had americana all over the walls and pitchers of beer and looked like it hadn't been decorated since the 60s.
