Friday, I left the office a bit earlier and then went to the Coop of Wallisellen to buy Ovomaltine biscuits for Karin. At home, I ate a bit and then started the chores. I had quite a lot to do, but was done at 4PM. I used my computer some time but had stuff to do in between. Later, I ordered a cordon bleu and when it came, I ate it in front of the TV, with a beer. Then used my computer again for the rest of the evening and had a couple more beers. I had a shower and went to bed a bit late...
Saturday, I woke up at 10:30. I did some chores, had a breakfast and then used my computer but also did some chores in between, because I had a rather long list of stuff to do until Sunday evening. It was like that for most of the afternoon and I also ate a bit and played with my cats. Later, I took the bus and train and went to the round table in Oerlikon. I arrived a bit before 7PM. I said hello and talked to Dan and said hello to more furries. Then ordered my dinner and a beer. My food arrived quite soon, so I ate but also talked a lot and had more beers. I looked at Dan playing the geek with his laptop. Later, I went outside with Toxo and a few others and we talked. I left with him not too late and took the train to Schwerzenbach but had to wait for the bus. So we walked to the Dorf station and waited for the bus there, so the wait was shorter. I went back home and did a few things and then Toxo came with his shisha and some beer and we smoked and had a beer and of course talked until 1AM. Then we tidied up and he left. I took a shower and went to bed rather late.
Sunday, I slept until 10:30AM (but was woken up almost one hour at around 8), then did some chores, had a breakfast at the computer and did more chores, and during the day, I mostly alternatively did some chores and then sat at the computer, or cuddled with my cats, etc. So it wasn't stressful and I could do everything what's on my list. Then I had a shower and did more stuff, and at around 6:30, I took my luggage downstairs and Anita was waiting for me. I put everything into the car and we went to her place. I did a couple of things and helped her and later we walked to the street and waited to the taxi. Our taxi was quite big and the driver was friendly. We arrived at the check in hall and saw Simba. Anita needed to go to a pharmacy so we followed her. Then we met Reto and then waited for Myriam. She came a bit after 8PM and then we checked in our luggage and then walked through the security check. I waited until the other ones were done and I bought a bottle of whiskey. Then we walked a bit and stopped at a Burger King for having a dinner. We stayed there around 30 minutes or a bit more and then walked through the pass check and we arrived quite soon at our gate. I had a beer with Simba and went then to the smoker's lounge to have a cigarillo, but we didn't have time to finish to smoke it, we had to board. We waited a bit and could walk into the plane and installed into the seats and maybe 15 minutes later we already took off. Around 15 more minutes later, I started to write this text on my laptop. Then we got our meal server, then I just chilled and then I listened to music and tried to sleep, but I didn't sleep well and a lot. Then the lights went on and a bit later we had a breakfast. Later, the plane started to get down and we landed a bit after 9AM. We went outside an walked to the pass check, we needed about 20 minutes. We walked and took our luggage and arrived at the main hall were we met Unci and Kijani. We talked and waited for Sebi who came around 30 minutes later. We then left with the driver of the park and put all the luggage into the bus and then went first to a supermarket (the same as always) and bought drinks and snacks. We then drove to the park and met Ronel. We went with her at the Alpha Conference Centre where we will sleep and installed into the rooms. I took a shower too and at 2PM, we waited for Ronel. We went with her around the park to see how it is and got registered and became our volunteer t-shirts, then we had an early dinner and then went to say hello with the lion cubs and then cheetahs. Then we were free. We went to the kiosk and then to our rooms. I went later to the swimming pool, but the water was quite cold. I went to my room to take a shower and came back outside. I had a whiskey and a cigarillo with Simba. Then I came back into the room, got ready and went to bed very early.
Tuesday morning, I woke up quite early and I made a coffee and then got ready and went outside at 7:40 to meet the others. We walked to the park and went to the animal interaction part and helped to clean. I removed the poop of the lion cubs and cheetahs and then looked the other finish to work. Then, we went to have a breakfast at 9AM. After that, I bought a cap and we waited and went with a vehicle to the big enclosures and stopped to cut the meat for the animals, with a knife an an axe. I also helped, it was quite cool but also dirty, fortunately we had gloves. Then we went with the vehicles to bring the meat to the lions, hyenas, wild dogs and leopards. I tried a few times to throw some pieces of meat over the enclosure, it wasn't easy but I succeeded. We also could take photos with open gate at the wild dogs and lions! Then we came back to the entrance of the park and had a lunch. After the lunch, we went to visit some enclosures and then had a coffee, went to the giraffes and waited around until we could get into the enclosure of the lion cubs and stayed there for a long time and took many photos and could pet them and play with them. A bit before 5PM, we had a dinner and then went back to our rooms at around 6PM. I stayed some time in the room and then went to a lounge of the center to use my laptop, talk to the other ones, drink whisky and have a cigarillo with Simba. Then went again inside to talk, use my laptop and phone. I had a shower and then went to bed not too late.
Wednesday, I woke up at 7AM and later I had a coffee with KingSimba in my room, then finished to get ready and went to the park to help to clean the enclosures but finally we didn't really help and just cuddled with the cubs and took photos. Later, we went to have breakfast and then walked around the park, went to some animal enclosures and to some other parts of the park. At around 11AM, we went to the tour starting point to wait and waited quite long. Then we went with bus to the monkey and elephant sanctuary, the drive dured about 30 minutes. We arrived and filled a form, waited and then started the monkey tour. We were in a big enclosure with capuchin monkey, squirrel monkeys and a few others, on wooden paths, bridges, it was really nice. A guide explained us quite many things, it was interesting and I took many photos. After one hour, we came back, and directly went to another part of the place to meet elephants. There were more people, but we could 2 by two pet them and feel their skin, ears etc. I was with a 19 years old bull, and besides a 20 years old cow. Later, we could walk with them, hold them by the trunk, it was quite cool but very short. We could also feed them. Then we left but we had to wait for the driver, so we had a drink and used the wlan there. Then the driver collected us and we came back by an other way, through a dam and saw expensive houses at the shore of the lake. We came back at the park and went to the restaurant to have dinner because it was 5PM. Afterwards, we went back to our rooms for a certain time and then I went to the parking of the Lion Park to meet Karin. I gave her Rivella and Ovomaltine cakes and then went to the rooms and then to the lounge to drink white wine and talk. Then a guy threw us out, so we went to sit next to the swimming pool and had a cigarillo and whiskey and talked a lot. At 9:30 PM, I went with Kingsimba to bring Karin to her car and said bye. I went back to the room did a few chores, had a shower and went to sleep.
Thursday morning we woke up at the normal time, later Simba came in to have a coffee and then I got ready and went to the park, where the cubs are, but I went with Sebi to Sabu the cheetah to pet him some time, it was nice. Then, we went to have a breakfast. Later, we went to the kiosk and then waited quite long at the place where tours started. We finally could go inside a vehicle which brought us to the enclosure of the big predators. We first removed bones and crap out of the wild dog enclosure, with them inside, but we were safe, because we stayed in a group. Then we did the same with two lion enclosures. It was time to go back to the park. We walked around and then went to have a lunch. After that, we went to the rooms for a small time and I took my big lens with the D5. We went back and could go again with Sebi to pet Sabu the cheetah. Then we went to the kiosk and waited a long time because we hoped to have a game drive but then we saw Ronel and said it's not possible. We went instead to the lion cubs and also to Sabu, this time with Kitwana and Kijani and we went back to the lion cubs and could take many good photos of them. We then went to have dinner and then went back to our rooms for a certain time and then went to the lounge to talk, use our phones and laptops and then I had a cigarillo with Simba outside. We came back to the lounge and had a whiskey and used my laptop. Then I went back to the room and had a shower and went to bed at 10PM.
Friday, I got up at 7AM but stayed longer in the bed, then got ready and had a coffee and went to the park. We went a bit to the cubs and then went to the animal food station to cut fruits and vegetables for the small animals like porcupines, meerkats and mongooses. I also helped to clean the floor. Just after, we sat on a pickup and went to the enclosures of big animals and waited and took photos of young lions and then fed them. It didn't take too much time and then we came back and headed to the restaurant because we needed to have a breakfast. Just before arriving, we saw Umuntu with a friend from Johannesburg and one from Serbia. We said hello and talked and then went to the restaurant, we all ordered something for breakfast but sadly something went wrong and we had to wait for almost one hour. When we finally finished to eat, I went with Umuntu and his friends to get a ticket to pet the cheetah, but we had to go to the ticket office first and also Umuntu's friend had to buy a self drive ticket in order to take a cheetah interaction ticket. Two of them went with the cheetah and I took some photos. Then, we went to the small animals and then brought them to the exit through the shops and said bye. My friends were on a safari tour, so I had an ice cream and a drink and then waited for them to come. When then came, I went to my room to get my camera and a few other things and then went back to the park and waited for the game drive to start. I was only with two men and the driver, it was nice. We saw the lion camps and then wild dogs, cheetahs, then went out to see the different hyenas and I then to the leopards. On the way back, we went back to the hyenas, because two tiny babies were out and I took many photos. Then we came back slowly but saw more animals on the way. When I came back, the other ones were already having dinner but Anita ordered my pasta, so I ate and later we went back to our rooms. As usual, we met us later at the lounge and I used my computer and copied the photos to it. I had a cigarillo and whiskey with Simba, but when we came back to the lodge, we had to go. I had a shower and used my laptop again and then went to bed not too late, but didn't sleep too well because of first the people around us celebrating and then a big thunderstorm at around 3AM.
Saturday was as usual: I had a coffee in my room with Simba and got ready, then walked to the park. I helped a bit to clean the enclosure and then we went to have a breakfast. Then, I helped together with Reto to assist the employees of the park at the lion cubs. We could also pet them. Kijani went then with us. Then it was time to have lunch. Afterwards, I went to assist at the cheetah enclosure but there weren't a lot of people, so I went back to the lions and helped a bit more, but then a thunderstorm came and and I first went under a roof at the park, then ran away to the Alpha Training Center but then it started to hail, so I found shelter under a strange roof at the beginning of the center. It was very crazy, because the hail was big and very intense, also lots of rain. When it calmed down a little bit, I went 10 minutes in the restaurant and then again to the room where Anita was. I was okay but very wet. I removed my clothes an later I put new ones and when it didn't rain much anymore, we went to the restaurant where we met the other ones at a chimney fire. I first had a cappuccino and then 12 samosas. Then, we left and I went to the room and used my laptop for a while. Later, I went outside our building and had a cigarillo and whiskey with Simba, we talked. I went back to the room, had a shower, used my phone and went to bed at around 10PM.
Sunday, I woke up at 7 but stayed in the bed quite long then Simba came into the room and we had a coffee, then we got ready and arrived at the park at around 9AM and had a breakfast and we needed some time until we were served. We then talked to Ronel and she said that there is nothing to help in the park, so we went back to the Alpha and I stayed some time in the room, then we went to a tent with table and chairs and used my laptop and my phone for a couple of hours. Later, we went back to the park and helped a bit with the cubs and also pet them and walked around the park. Then, we had dinner rather early and at this point, Ronel came and gave us the forms to fill before visiting the park of Kevin Richardson. After that, I went back to the cubs to pet them and play with them, we also talked, etc. We were asked to feed them with meat, so we did it and also brought the meat to the cheetahs. It was getting late, so we went to the hotel and I did a few things in the room, then went to the tent to use my laptop and phone, also talked, especially with Unci. I had a cigarillo with Simba and then I took my stuff and went back to my room. I did a few chores, then had a shower, went to bed and used my phone a little while.
Monday, I woke up at the normal time, got ready and Simba came to have a coffee. Then finished to get ready and we went to the park. We cleaned the enclosure of the cubs, removed the bones, etc, then went to the bigger cubs and could get inside the enclosure because they were active but friendly. We pet them and took many photos, it was nice. When we got out, we had to help to rake the leaves and put them into trash bags. Then we had a breakfast but some omelettes didn't come in time, so I got them in take away boxes. We went to the waiting point and ate the omelettes, waited more an then went in a vehicle to the lion walk, we were with two of them, 12 month old, named Noah and Leila, both white. They sat on a stone and we could pose with them, then we did the same on a branch and I took many photos. They also drank and did more "tricks", it was nice to take photos. It was then finished. We went back to the entrance of the park. Since we could soon go on a predator drive, I walked fast to the room with Simba and Sebi to take our big lens and walked back to the park. We waited and then went on a vehicle. We saw the lion camps including the feeding, then we saw the wild dogs and the cheetahs. We came back to the park and went to eat, but since I wasn't hungry, I only had a drink but ate some salad from Anita. Then, I went back to the room to change lenses and went back to the park. I went inside with the cubs and pet them a lot, especially a white male who was nice and cuddly. I also took many photos of them. Later, Unci came and I stayed a long time there. Then Reto and Sebi and Kijani, later Anita, Myriam and Simba. We stayed quite long there and then went to the grill restaurant of the park "Buck 'n Bull" with the other volunteers from the USA and other people and I ordered a starter and then a piece of meat, and of course lots of beer. It was quite nice. We stayed here a while and talked quite much and then came back to the room. Later, I had a cigarillo with Simba, had a shower, used my laptop and then went to bed not too late.
Tuesday was quite the same as every day, we cleaned the cub enclosures and helped around, then had a breakfast and then hanged around. Most of the volunteers went to a three hour game drive but I stayed at the park and went with the cubs. I chilled with them, pet them, played with them and took photos of them, especially macros. I also went around the park and to the cheetahs. Then, some volunteers went to the cubs too but then we went to the bigger ones and took some photos of them but didn't get inside because they were a bit too excited. We played with them through the fence. It was already time for getting to the Braai next to the children's playground. First I had a beer, talked to the people there and then played a domino game (Mexican Train) that one of the volunteer from the USA brought. We had fun! Then I talked to Jabulani quite a long time and then it was time to eat, so I had some meat, vegetable and salad. I also had my second beer. Then I was full! During the evening, I also pet Benji, the dog of Ronel. Later, we played to the Mexican Train and then left because it was late. I had a shower and went to bed.
Wednesday, we had the same program as usual, cleaned the cubs enclosures but we got annoyed by the attitude of Sebi. Anyway, then we went at 9 to a cheetah walk: we drove to the bush and later Sithle came inside a car. We could pose with him at two different places, pet him, take photos, etc. We also took photos of him alone. Then he left in the car and we too. At the park, I went with Anita to have a look at the cubs and Sabu the cheetah and then Myriam came. A bit later we went inside the enclosure with the bigger cubs and we could pet them a bit, especially Nigel, I like him. I went to the kiosk and then waited until we could go into a car which brought us to the bush. We fed giraffes, zebras, gnus, nyalas etc. We also went to the crocodile river and stayed there for a long time, it was nice. The last station of this rather big tour was to clean the water holes of the hyenas. We went inside with them and they looked at us from a certain distance. The hole was very dirty because they use to poop and pee a lot in it, so it stank but I still helped. I also took photos of the hyenas from inside. We were then finished and came back at 4PM. We went to the kiosk and then to the room. I got clothes and other things ready, then had a shower and did more things and then we left and went to the parking of the Lion Park where a Uber driver waited for us in a white van. He drove us to Montecasino, it brought around 30 minutes. There, we split us: Reto and Kijani went to play bowling and with the rest we went to a sweets shop and then to another souvenir/clothes shop, Karin went inside. Then we went a short time to another shop and met Reto and Kijani, then went all together to Donatella's, the "traditional" restaurant for Lion Park volunteers. I had a soup and a lasagna, as well as three Black Label. It was nice but then I was full. Before we left the restaurant, I went outside with KingSimba and Karin to smoke and when we came back, I finished my beer and we payed. We went with Simba, Reto and Kijani to the casino but they had to register in order to pay. Then we watched how Kijani played black jack (he works in a casino in Seattle) and won pretty much. Then, they played slots and Anita, Karin and Myriam came to us and later we left but Simba, Reto and Kijani had to get their cash out and had to wait in queue. We waited to be complete outside where the van was waiting. We said bye to Karin and went back to the Alpha. When we arrived, I did a few things but went to bed pretty late.
Thursday, we woke up at the same time, as usual Simba came to drink a coffee in our room and then I finished to get ready and went to the Park but since I was a bit late, I arrived later. We went to the cubs and collected bones, then I stayed with the cubs and then we left. I went to the kiosk, then back to the room with Myriam to take a few things like my photo bag and change T-shirt and went back to the park and waited for our driver. He came pretty soon and we left at around 9:30. The way was pretty long, we drove through Pretoria and its suburbs and then again on a highway, then we had to drive trough a private reserve with a bad road, and then we stood in front of a gate with no mention of Kevin Richardson. We waited and waited and then went further, but it was the wrong way, the only possibility was to go through this gate. We came back and then someone opened but we were late. We drove again many minutes to the gate of Kevin Richardson's sanctuary and we waited, then had to wait inside and then finally some Indian guy working for Kevin came with a safari car and also a French couple. We drove to the enclosures and then could go off the vehicle. The Indian guy talked about the animals and other details and I also took many photos mostly at 400mm. I got a few nice pics. We did that from lion enclosure to lion enclosure and to finish, we stopped at an enclosure with male hyenas. Then he brought us back to the starting point, we talked, payed and went back to the van to the Lion Park, it brought us almost two hours, because the driver didn't really went to the best roads. When we arrived at the park, I went with Myriam to help her to exchange dollars to rand and then went to eat, it took us a good hour. I took a beer for the evening. Then went back to the park and a bit later, we spent one hour or more in the tent, I copied my photos and talked, had a cigarillo with Simba. Then went back to the room, had a shower an went to bed.
Friday, we woke up at 5AM, got ready and went to the departure place of the park and didn't need to wait too long. We went into a vehicle with Ronel and she drove to the park at Sunset and stopped when we saw animals, it was nice but still fresh. I could take a few pictures. Then, we stopped around 20 minutes at the river and took photos. Then we went back, drove a while and then we stopped at the leopards, I could take nice photos, the light was good. Later we stopped at the hyenas, I also took good photos, especially of one baby. Then we went slowly through the park and I took more photos and then came back. We had a breakfast and then we waited to get on the Alex Tour. We had the same vehicle as the morning. We first went to the fridge to fetch meat and then we went to a lions enclosure where Alex interacted with them and talked about many things, and always gave some chunks of meat. We went to another lions' enclosure and Alex placed meat on the tree so that they could climb, it was interesting to see. Later, we went to the wild dogs enclosure and when the vehicle entered, all the dogs ran next to the car and it was awesome. I took photos, but they weren't that good. We then went at the river and took photos of the top seat of the vehicle for the fun with my cameras. We walked to the shore and Alex talked about more stuff and we took a few photos and then went back to the park, but through many ways and stopped a few times to take photos. When we came back to the park, we went to the room and changed my lenses and did more stuff and then went back to the park. First to the small cubs and then to the bigger ones and I took a few photos. Then we went to eat and then back to the room. I did a few chores and used my laptop and then Karin came. We went to the tent and I used a bit my computer, but mostly talked to Karin and the others and also had a bottle of white wine. I went outside to smoke with Simba and Karin. Then she left, we also left. I had a shower and used my computer a bit and then went to bed.
Saturday, I woke up at 7AM and went to clean the cub's enclosure at 8AM. We went a bit to the big cubs and had a breakfast at 9AM. Later, I first went to the small cubs but then we went to the big cubs and could go inside the enclosure because they were lazy and it was really nice to be with them, especially Nigel the 8 month old cub. I stayed quite long until the weather was starting to be less nice. I went to the kiosk to buy an ice cream and walked to the hotel. There, I bathed for about 20 minutes with Reto and Kijani but went back to the room when it started to rain and some lightnings were striking around. In the room, I used my laptop and talked to Anita until the weather was quite good again: we went outside, next to the pool and used my laptop again. About 30 minutes later, I went back to the room and then back to the park. I went to the big cubs but they were too excited to get inside, so I went to the small cubs but they were too sleepy and didn't want to be disturbed. I went for a short time to the big cubs. I went a couple of minutes inside but since they wanted to play rough, I left again. Outside the enclosure, I took photos of the three white ones next to each other on the platform. Then we had dinner before 5PM and before I finished my second drink, I went to the room to take a jacket because there was still a cold wind. I finished my drink and went to the tours starting point and soon get into a safari vehicle, which started at about 6PM, Nadien was our driver. We went to the hyenas and it took us some time but stopped on the way to take pictures of wildebeests, zebras and impalas, accompanied by information about them. At the hyenas' enclosure, we stapped out and an employee of the park threw a horse leg into the enclosure and the hyenas ate it very quickly, in quite a crazy violence. It was very impressive to see but couldn't really take pictures even though the scene was lighted with spotlights mounting on the safari truck. We then left and went to a lions' enclosure, every lion there got a piece of meat. The feeding there was quite peaceful, because the animals were already full from previous feedings. We left the place and arrived at the park a few minutes later. I first went with Unci to Cindy and then to one of the male cheetahs and others arrived too. We didn't stay not too long, because the next thunderstorm came quite quickly and we didn't know if the cheetah (I think Sabu) would be afraid of them. I went with Unci to the restaurant to buy beer and came back to our rooms. Some of us went to Simba's room to drink the beer. Simba also bought 4 Red Label. We drank them, ate some snacks and talked. Then had a cigarillo outside with Simba while I drank my 3rd Black label and then went back to my room to start to pack. I had a shower, used my phone and slept.
Sunday, I woke again at 7AM, used my phone, got ready and started to pack. When I was finished, I waited and then went to the park. I went with Unci and Reto to Sithle and we could pet him and take photos of him, but he wasn't really in a good mood. Then, I went to Sabu. He was in a better mood but still not that good. We also went to the big cubs but didn't go inside because they were too playful. It was time to have a breakfast. After the breakfast, we went back to the Alpha to put our luggage to the reception, came back to the park where we meet Ronel and talked a lot with her and made a good group photo. We stayed quite a long time together. Then, we went again to the big cubs and could go inside because they were calm due to the heat. It was a nice way to say bye to them. If I ever see them again, they will be big and we cannot pet them anymore. Then it was slowly time to leave. I bought some souvenirs for my parents and for Enzo, then we went to say bye to Ronel, it was a bit a moving moment because we like her, she took well care of us. We walked to the Alpha Conference center and took our luggage from the reception and loaded it into the park's van. We left the park and the drive to the airport lasted for about on hour. I used my phone, talked, watched the side of the road and took a few pictures. We arrived at the airport and went to check in quite soon but then didn't see Unci and Sebi. Just after giving the luggage away, we went to the security check and walked around the terminal A to find a restaurant. We found one and I first used my laptop waiting for the meal, because the WiFi was rather good. I ate some pasta with salmon. Then we payed and said bye to Kijani, then walked again around the airport. I went with Simba to the smoker's lounge to smoke a cigarillo. We had to consume a drink but no alcohol was served, so I took a mineral water. We stayed quite long because Simba wanted to smoke a second one. Then, I wanted to have a beer, so I found one at a duty free shop and I drank it before we approached the gate. We went to check the passports and found Reto again (he went with Kijani). We sat down and waited for the boarding, which was on time. In the plane, I waited a bit and then took photos of the lights underneath and then used my laptop a bit to write this text. They served snack and had a beer. I also played a bit with the entertainment system. Then, they served the dinner and had another beer. After this, I used my laptop and played more, then listened to the music and tried to sleep.
After a few hours of sleep, I was still quite tired. We had a breakfast and then just waited until the plane safely landed in Zürich. We got out slowly, had a pass control just outside and then walked to the skymetro and got one soon. Then pass control, we waited for our luggage and then went out and said bye to Myriam and Simba. I had to take my apartment key from the case and then I said hello to Reto's father and said bye to both. I took a taxi with Anita and I arrived at home at around 7:40. I had lots to do like empty my case, tidy up and more, it took me some time. I also pet my cats of course. Later, I had a small coffee break and also used my phone and then I went to the Migros to buy food and other things. When I came back, I started to wash. The rest of the afternoon, I washed more and used my computer, I copied the photos to the computer and watched them, replied to messages and more. I also did small things in the apartment. Later, I went to the coop to buy a bottle of white wine and waited for Anita. She came and I went to her place. I first collected the ripe peppers and cut some of them. Later, we ate a good raclette. It was really good and I was full! Then I sat on the couch, used my phone and had a beer but started to be very busy, so Anita brought me home and at home, I didn't do much and went to bed a bit after 11PM.
Tuesday, last day of holidays, I woke up a bit before 10, did some chores, used my phone, pet my cats and then had a breakfast at the Computer. Most of the morning, I photoshopped and exported the photos of the other participants to the South Africa trip but did more at the computer. I also did a few things in the apartment. Then, I went to the post to get my Swarovski calendar, did more chores, went to the cellar and took the wash to iron. Then I used my computer for most of the afternoon, and two teas and a bit to eat, pet my cats and did more stuff in the apartment. Later, I cooked a risotto, ate at the computer and then ironed for most of the evening, I needed around two hours of work because I had lots to iron. Of course I watched TV during this time. After that, I tidied up and then used my computer and had a beer. I started to be tired, so I had a shower and went to bed not too late.
