This was our last night in London before flying home to Sydney on Saturday evening. And after the amazing weekend in Amsterdam, we weren’t sure whether we really wanted to go out or not. But the chance to see friends from Sydney while they were on honeymoon and to say goodbye to London-based friends meant that it wasn’t too difficult to twist my rubber arm. So once we’d finished cleaning the flat at 11pm, we headed off to Elephant & Castle for what we thought would be a quick couple of hours and a relatively early night by our standards for a Friday.

Of course it turned into a much bigger night than that, thanks to the generosity of people who will remain nameless as far as this blog is concerned and while Ferry Corsten’s set was not as good as the one we’d heard him play in Ibiza, he was very good, dropping Binary Finary – 1998 and Armin van Buuren – Communication towards the end of his set. He closed with the original mix of System F – Out Of The Blue, which was an awesome way to finish.

We didn’t enjoy Richard Durand’s set so much, although we had enjoyed a nice chat with him earlier. So we headed away from the Box and towards the above-mentioned generosity … which inevitably ended in just two-hours sleep for me and a massive hangover to check-in to Heathrow. Schoolboy error, but we had fun.
