Journal Entry:
Basically a repeat of yesterday. Woke up feeling good, have decided I'm healthy. A few days ago I got email from Amy complaining about being sore from doing lunges. I thought I need the exercise, lunges are easy and effective so I did a few hundred this morning. Spent the rest of the morning with my journal and the travel books. Afternoon I had a lunch of street food (I really am feeling healthy) and wandered around the fetish booths of the Marché Central (think decaying bits and pieces of every kind imaginable - and many simply unimaginable). Explored the Cetre Artisanal and engaged in some bargaining, but never bought anything. After a few hours at the markets I really started to feel my legs. Spent the evening at the internet cafe. After diner I decided on a special treat, ice cream! Vanilla and hot chocolate sauce, it was pretty sub-standard, but none-the-less I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it's the first ice cream I've had since leaving Morocco.
