Journal Entry:
Woke up after a miserable night of being sick and decided that I should spent the day in bed again. Shortly after noon I decided there was no way I could stand any more bed time and got up. Still tried to do as little as possible. Spent the day walking around the waterfront and port, and drinking tea / reading at a waterfront cafe. Akko is pretty reminicent of Rhodes or Debruvnic with its city walls and Mediterranean location. Got to see my sunset over the water! First one since October. Over an ocean is definitely the prefered way to watch the sun go down!

My Minolta appears to be broken! Well at least the zoom is (it makes an ominous clicking noise when I try to zoom out past a certain point). I'm going to assume the camera still works for the lower zoom range, but I will try to start using my other camera more - just in case.
