Cryptome unveils Assange in Embassy Eyeball

Julian Assange’s Life Inside A Converted Women’s Toilet At The Ecuadorian Embassy

Assange works 17-hour days and has always been a night owl, keeping “hackers’ hours” of late night nights and sleeping in. He is a light sleeper, and the location of the embassy in the heart of Kensington has been a problem for him. Harrods is close by 3 Hans Crescent and the early morning deliveries played havoc with his sleep.

“I couldn’t sleep because of the Harrods loading bay and the cops always doing shift changes outside,” Assange told the Australian magazine Who.

“And the quietest room is the women’s bathroom, the only room that’s easy to sleep in. So I thought I’d try and somehow get hold of it and renovate it. Eventually, somewhat reluctantly, the staff relented. They ripped out the toilet. They’ve been very generous.”

Assange’s converted bathroom-office has modest living quarters, with a bed, a small kitchenette, a computer with internet connections and a shower.
