On the way from the airport I got a text saying he’d been held up with something and he’d meet me at breakfast the next morning instead.
So I checked in and went to bed and read a book.

About 11pm I got a call from the Charge to say that he was back in Minsk and he could still meet for a nightcap in the bar in 10 mins.

This was good. I got dressed again and went downstairs to the bar.
