As a ready made team of four, Andrew, Sim, Nick and I as the “Beach Bums” set off to show the home crowd how it is done.
Ex Pats started to roll in in their 4x4s to parade their egos.
The team of 4 began to look a little lightweight... some teams were 7 strong!
Brows furrowed, our meals arrived and we were off.
Nick was our secret weapon here; and with no football questions, we did good.
But the level of angst around us was obvious and as papers were exchanged to be marked. Such euphoria as they were found to be right on the question they had been a little wobbly on. “Well done, Rory! Good man!” Quite so.
Films, birthdays, riddles, cheese...
We had chosen the “cheese” category in which to play our joker, which probably shows the level we were coming at this from. Some people get awfully serious about this stuff, innit? Suffice to say we did frightfully well.

A definite non highlight was the continuing bad news from home, from different quarters, when there is really nothing one can do effectively from here.
