Mid-morning I checked into a cheap motel for two nights. Down to $340. If she didn’t show on the Saturday night, I’d at least have a place to sleep until bolting from Sydney on Sunday morning, and it gave me a place to hang out. The room was cramped and stuffy. After a short while I barely noticed. Nothing held my attention until I flicked through the TV channels and caught a news item about a big Ecstasy bust in Pittwater.
