The sleeping element of the evening seems to be over, the dulcet tones of my new friends gently snoring are no longer soothing.
Upon arrival we tactically selected an area to rest our heads, our approach was to avoid the main walkways to ensure the least disturbance as the hundreds of people housed within the giant structure relieved themselves throughout the night.
Spencer at 4.06am wrote ‘how I’m doing’ “What became evident fairly early as we settled down was neither of us were good Boy Scouts. In fact we had selected an area where the only water feature in the giant structure could be found in all its splendour. The large paper envelope provided to sleep in was soaking wet, Dexter found another for me to use and I adjusted my position but a few short hours later here I am, cold and very wet. Who would have thought water moves around a tarpaulin so freely.
Last night we made a few new friends and shared an incredible experience in this challenging but very much controlled environment, imagine if this was for real every day. We feel lucky and compelled to do more to help this and similar charities.
Dexter Franklin – Beck is currently off seeking sustenance and I’m sure we will depart for home shortly, how very privileged are we”
