Journal Entry:
In the morning I sleep in, collected my laundry, and then met Nir and Chrissie for a late breakfast at Just Juice. At the restaurant I discovered something dangerous - the Banana-Chocolate-Coffee shake is to die for. The first one was so good I had a second - I'm going to have to ration myself. After breakfast I spent over an hour on the internet getting my journal up to date, reading / sending email, and launching the new version of my program Pike.

It was still raining so it was hard to motivate to do anything. In the afternoon I found a portrait studio where I could get some passport photos made reasonably. I had lunch at Tashi Doleg (same place as diner last night), but this time I had the amazing vegetable momos. I spent a couple hours going on failed quest to every outfitter in Thamel for a clip for my sandals which broke on the rafting trip. In the evening I hit an internet cafe again then went to my room to get my book, but fell asleep. Nir woke me at eight and I went to see a video with him - Chocolaté (I really liked it - while traveling I'm such a sucker for happy endings). The theater here at guesthouse is really nice - a big home theater set up with surround sound, couches, and even popcorn! After the movie I went with with Nir to Tom & Jerry's and met Chrissie and her friends. I left them when they wanted to a club, and I went back to the guesthouse for another beer and some reading.
