It’s been awhile since I posted last. Well, I guess it’s been only a couple of days, but it feels like a long time – so much has happened! I mean, dude, I’m in
There’s so much to say, but I don’t know if I have enough words to say it. I mean, how do I begin to describe this place and all the things we’ve seen and done? I don’t know if I should post here where I am. I know it sounds paranoid but to quote someone (I can’t remember who),”just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious.”
Let’s just say that we’re staying in
I ventured into the bazaar today, too. It was pretty cool. I bought soap and shampoo, both items that I left in
Before I can go on with this story, I have to say that the toilet is not “American-style.” It’s basically a fancy hole in the ground. See if you can find a picture on the internet. I means it’s still porcelain and all, but way different from what you’re used to.
Anyway, I’m taking a shower and I drop the soap. It’s pretty cold in there and the water’s hot, so steam makes it pretty hard to see. I’m feeling around with my foot and nothing! So I get down closer to the floor to see. Nothing. The bathroom’s not big; I just don’t know where it could be. The floor around the toilet is raised a little bit (maybe three inches) and it occurs to me that the soap may have bounced up on there.
Not only did it bounce up there, but – as you’ve probably guessed already – it bounced right into the toilet. So my first purchase went right down the drain, literally.
