Day 2 - twitching and altercations

Pakkey (for Patrick) is an Ulsterman with two cats (Crackers and Gizmo) and, once upon a time, a rat who liked cannabis. He puts down his can of Guinness. 'Don't drink and die,' he says. He twists round to show me the back of his denim jacket. 'It's the pentangle of Solomon - I put it there myself.'

He has purple leather gloves with the fingers cut off and a walking stick embellished with nail varnish flourishes. He says he is 'a sculptor or a sculpture'.  A blonde German woman admires the pictures of him. 'Oh no,' he says, 'you can see I've had my nose broken twice. Altercations.'
