We do so little here, it’s hard to remember. After writing yesterday, we probably lay in our room for a while, went back to the pool and went back again. Had some food including brownies that were tasty yet way too dense and dry to be called brownies. Went back to our room and went to bed. Tried WiFi but it didn’t work. This morning I woke up with a worse cold than yesterday. Had pancakes and an omelette. Tried orange juice instead of Wonjo juice to spice things up. How exiting..
Met Assan to pay for tomorrow’s and Thursday’s trip (for Rens, Loek and one time dad). Walked some 50 minutes to and from a supermarket to buy cereal as lunch. Including cups and spoons and milk since we don’t have anything here. Went to the pool again of course, read more of my book and hoped the red would have gotten brown and the white won’t get red. Had cereal for lunch, made an appointment for a massage on Thursday and that’s it. Life is easy, lazy and what not. Just hope my cold won’t hang on for too long. I’d like to be able to breathe and smell the things around me.
Every once in a while, I need to be alone. I get quiet, try to ignore others or give short answers. Every once in a while, I’m on a holiday surrounded by people. Surely I understand small talk is nice, and company is nice. From their point of view, sure. From mine, not so much. On days or afternoons like this, I like to wander off or lock myself in, I’d like to listen to music or read and write. If the only place I can do that, is a lonely hotel room, so be it. I welcome it. My friends know not to say too much or just leave me alone at times like this.
At times like this I wish Wi-Fi was working so I could aimlessly surf the web. I wish I had my laptop so I could type this, get my photos in order or watch a series or two. But it doesn’t and I don’t. so I guess I’ll go and try to read a book again, here or at the pool. As long as I’m left alone, I should be fine.
