Dear Chris,
Cannot be easy for Doshu.I personally would never put him or anyone in an awkward position .Just felt he could have been more available in Cardiff. I do not expect him to be one of the guys but a balance could have been struck..Of course perhaps after I had made an hurried exit from said venue, maybe Doshu was Ok?Never waited around after the no chairs/pricy liquor.Had a good time slumming in Cardiff.Cheers,Joe.
My impression was that he gets kind of burned out and just wants to get out and be on his own rather than posing for a lot of pictures with people and making small talk.

Better to be in the cheap seats and have fun with the guys (and girls) .
