I am settled into the 'Vagabonds Hostel' in central Belfast after another well lived day (£15 for place in the dormatory). I was up and on the road at 5:00 am today for my 11:15 appointment at Stormont with Stephen Moutray DUP member of the Northern Ireland Assembly. In the event my timing was excellent, I arrived at Stormont with 20 minuets to spare. I had a short spell in the cafe waiting for Stephen to arrive. He is rather a tall fellow and I was dwarfed in his presence. We got on very well and there was much to talk about.
Afterwards I went back into central Belfast where I had a sandwich and called at the BBC offices to see if they might be interested in a story about JOG-LE in Northern Ireland. A long shot, I know.
