From Jakko…

In an unlikely and uncharacteristic move
I have changed my room!!!!
Not because it was about a 1/2 mile walk from the nearest lift
Or that the endless corridors made me feel like I was in 'the shining'
No
My room smelled
Musty and damp like
And I couldn't stand it
It was like a Squat I visited once
Or an old church

I'm now in room 4029
Which is slightly better

Jakko is honouring a convention established by Crimson Brother Bill Rieflin, who has changed more hotel rooms than any other touring player of my acquaintance.

Back in the room, a Skypey with T – yippee! Practising and computerising.
