We will paint until noon then take a break for 2 hours to rest and eat lunch.
Just a note: there are no really close washrooms on this calle ,so don't over do it on the coffee on this morning. There is an artist living on this street that allows us to use his premises but we won't be sure that he is home. There is a restaurant down the hill so no panic.Only that, what goes down must come up!
