at last that night, dinner with naz and the girls. we had a bit of a crazy night with taxis going to wrong locations, getting a late train back to our hotel, in heels (both me and z) and poor z suffering a terrible headache. but it was good to see naz and finally meet dagher's fiancee jelena. here i am with my friend rania whose sartorial style is the zaniest i know
