    Went to a fancy hipster coffee shop nearby for lunch which was very good though pricey - but the apple pie we had afterwards was excellent! Unfortunately their internet connection sucked so our plans of relaxing there for a couple of hours were dashed. Back to the room where we stayed for the day, Shandos working and dozing and me playing games.
