We put on our most impressive clothes and headed
for MAHIKI in Mayfair.
I am very excited to be here because it brings me back
to my younger years.
I used to eat in KONA KAI every weekend, and its
Polynesian atmosphere and decorations give me that
same old feeling and put me in the mood for being in
a tropical island.
We sat in our bamboo round table and ordered our favourite
Tiki cocktail — Painkiller — the taste of Paradise!
The night was hypnotic and we went on enjoying ourselves.
Not for one moment we felt tired or sleepy; instead it was
euphoria and ecstasy.
We left the club at 3:30am feeling very active.
It was almost 4:30am and once again I was tossing
and turning in my bed without being able to fall asleep.
A few times I drifted in and out of sleep, but that was all.
My story was repeating itself.
