We went out to dinner last night at the Istanbul Meze Mangal in the High Street. While we were eating I was telling him about RodM's work in the Ukraine. I asked if he could remember Rod staying with me years ago. "I don't know if I would recognise him," said Ben, "but I do remember the remote control helicopter he got me for Christmas or my birthday". A bribe has always been the quickest way to his heart.
"You can't rush something you want to last forever," he announced later.
