…Played ‘Excite Truck‘ whilst drinking Italian sparkling wine and talking about Asia.
…Re-read Stephen Fry’s debut novel, ‘The Liar’. I read it when it came out in 1991 and most of it went over my head. This time only some of it was lost on me. If you haven’t read it, read it.
…Paid an electricity bill so high that I initially thought the amount of money demanded was my customer reference number.
…Played along to Luisito Quintero’s incredible album, Percussion Madness with varying degrees of proficiency.
…Learnt some more about Hindustani music and persuaded Saj to get me a left-handed Sitar on his next trip to Kashmir.
…Developed a taste for Timothy Taylor beers. English ale might traditionally be enjoyed by elbow-patch wearing bearded folk music fans, but I’m telling ya – this is for real. This time I mean it. It’s Madonna’s favourite beer, apparently, but don’t let that put you off.
