Journal Entry:
I met Chrissie and Nir for breakfast again - we all seem to go there for breakfast. My big success for the morning was no shakes. After breakfast I went and signed up for a kayaking clinic starting tomorrow - four days of river kayaking, should be a blast. I spent a chunk of the afternoon reading in the courtyard and then went to my room to write email - my goal for the day was to get completely caught up. I went to the hotel's internet cafe to send the email I'd written and had just sat down when the power failed. At this time it had also started raining hard so walking around wasn't sounding that great. Instead I went out for an early dinner / late lunch. After eating I ran into Chrissie and Julian at Just Juice and ended up hanging out with them and another American, Emmy. Emmy and I had a beer in the guesthouse's courtyard and then went to meet up with a big group at a middle eastern restaurant. I wasn't very hungry, so I tried an "interesting" babaganuch (Sp?). Another beer in the courtyard and I ended up staying up latish talking with Emmy - she's just started traveling and is on her way to India. I went back to my room to pack for tomorrow and realized that I had forgotten to pick up my laundry so I had a bit of a quest finding someone who could get it for me. Ended up in bed late.
