Should anyone ask, pay your bills.




Had a great breakfast of eggs and bread and fresh orange juice. Good. Said goodbye to Antonia who goes away to India for three weeks and was walking back. Saw a waiter running down the street after two people who left without paying their bill. Then they started running too.



I forgot to pay my bar bill once and was reminded of the matter next time I returned for cocktails. A most embarrassing experience although I was very drunk when I left. The benefit is that I am now well known by the barman and get excellent service.



Moral of the story: do something to stand out from the crowd but don’t run away from your problems. Or something like that.
