Saturday 29th November
Last day of organising and so after breakfast went to American Express – yes £50 was there from our account so we will pick it up on Monday – to the PO to collect a nice pile of mail and then to clearing agent and shipping company to enquire on dock strike progress and paying passage.
From this we walk to the offices of the New Zealand Insurance Company to arrange insurance of baggage. After an initial shock of £10 premium, they came down to £5. We were just going when the Indian executive said he would give us a lift back to the hostel. He did but via the “Saturday Club” - a really British institution. Super with big high rooms and lots of British and Indians being very colonial.
Had a couple of strong beers and came back to the Salvation Army.
