We all made goals to train the morning session every other day, as there is less students and more black belts, so with the smell of toasted bread comming from my bulky bunk buddy nev, i wake up make myself some toast and a guranana smoothie and off to training i go. Every body is so much more energetic in the morning except us gringos but we soon liven up wen we get a few black belts mounting us.
Sunday day of rest..............not for me a friend of mine Emily, has come to stay and she arrived at 6:45 OWTCH!!!!!!. I get a phone call from a taxi driver telling me shes at the gate, on the walk up i see the bucket and ladder from the classic prank i put up the night before, (bucket over the door tied to the door handle) looks like it worked but i wont know till i speak to the sweeds (swedish guys).
