Selfishness Fails!

I left on the first boat this morning and headed to the nearest city, Sevastopol. I was here with 3 spare hours to find a place to watch the rugby.
But alas, i could not find a restaurant, pub or hotel anywhere that would show Sky Sports (what is the world coming to?) So i've ended up at in internet cafe watching the live updates on the screen. Like this one:

"The final siren sounds and the All Blacks secure the
30-13 victory over the Wallabies after trailing by 13 at the start of the first half"
It sounds exciting but I'd love to see it, so if anyone taped it could they please send it to me.

Going to try and meet up with the rest of the group now, they wanted to come to Sevastopol later in the day.

Love Jono
Keep Looking Up

No Success Without Pain

I'm in Sevastopol and have 15 minutes in an internet cafe before getting on the next bus. We are staying on the beach near Balaclava on the southern most tip of Ukraine.

Last night I woke a few times and listened to the people staying up all night talking. I wondered how much longer before my alarm would wake me. Eventually at 4:15 the alarm started to beep and I begrudgingly dragged myself out of my sleeping bag, pulled on some clothes and met about 8 other keen but bleary eyed people from our group.

We headed along a little goat track that wound up and up and up. It was still dark as we left but the light gradually took over.

About 1 1/2 hours later, we stood atop a mountain watching the sun rise, the fog lift and gazed out over the majesty of the Black Sea.

On the way up I was wishing I was back in bed. I was wishing the girls in front of me were not so fit so I wouldn't feel so bad about being beaten by a girl.
