Glass of wine has been drunk here - now pretzels are being nibbled while we listen to David Attenborough talking about bats.
A couple of years ago we were invited to the grand opening of an exhibition of the art of the South Pacific - David Attenborough was the guest of honour and at one stage we were placed very close to him. He has the most amazingly beautiful skin. Being so close to him was nearly as exciting as being very close indeed to a troop of Maori warriors performing a traditional Haka ... an experience that will remain with me for a very long time indeed
