Sachi was already feeling the effects of the medicine, but wasn't ready to eat some of the Belgian wafels I brought from Holland. She told me that there was actually a chain of stores selling "Belgian" wafels but that they just didn't taste the same. Later that night I actually found a store called Manneken (Pis) selling Belgian wafels. Indeed they weren't the same, nowhere near as good actually.

The competition went smoothly again but not as good for me as the day before. I did have more fun though because I had gotten to know more people. I only did well in 3x3x3 One Handed getting a 28 and a 27 second solve. I also missed the podium for 7x7x7 and Master Magic with 5th and 4th place. In the afternoon we had wafels for lunch and we knew Sachi would have some more problems, but would be ok.

The 3x3x3 finals showed some impressive results by many people and World Records were broken for Clock.

After the competition many people had to go home rather quickly but I ended up going to a restaurant with a group of 8 people, eating octopus balls. Quite good and cheap, but I started missing the vegetables already. Potatoes/Pasta is rice here, and meat is fish, but vegetables are just a tiny seaweed wrapping.

I found myself a place in the hostel above the competition area, enjoyed another Japanese hot bath and then decided to check on my European friends, especially the ones at the tournament in Bristol. Before I knew it the clock showed 8 in the morning and it was time to get breakfast. This wouldn't be the last time that internet took over sleep on the list of priorities
