Francois picked me up and took me to his place in Managua where we pored over kitchen equipment and he negotiated his way to the best deals. After this, a meeting with Matthew and then dinner with the boys. and drinks and more drinks. You knew it was going wrong when all the remaining half empty bottles were put out on the kitchen table!! Still, I coped and didn’t feel too terrible, unlike some, the next day to get onto my flight.
