' sitting here listening to Supreme DJ Flash playing Hip Hop tunes to wake up as all around me the Walk down the street gamelan is being constructed. We've made it through the night only 7 hours to go and I'm going strong - fuelled by great samosas from Shanaz, juice, fruit and snacks. There have been some great highlights of the event so far - I'll share them when we've done - in the meantime this is what is coming up.
