Eyes wide shut
As if chasing Simon Hughes around Newham wasn't tiring enough, there's also been the small matter of capoeira this weekend.
Marrom, our teacher's teacher, is in town and led a workshop on Sunday, which ended in a big roda during which many old faces made an appearance - and Ben took the cake for diving head first during a game.
But his last class has to rank up there with one of the more original ones that I've been too. As if playing against two others wasn't difficult enough - you needed eyes in the back of your head to react to moves - we also had to play each other in pairs, with our eyes closed.
Imagine my surprise then, when opening them, I found I was still playing the same person and not someone else!
