Journal Entry:
Woke up feeling surprisingly good after last night's over indulgence. Unfortunately that state didn't last and a serious hangover developed quickly. Spent the rest of the morning trying to keep down some cokes and avoiding bright lights and loud noises. I went for a quick swim in the ocean and that helped a little. Early afternoon we all packed into the Land Rover and headed for the internet cafe. We were there for two hours and I was able to get through 52 emails (leaving 32 to be dealt with tomorrow). The rest of the gang wasn't doing much better than I so we'd decided to go find a movie to watch (another advantage of being in an English speaking country!) We spent a couple hours tracking down theaters, had a nice diner, and finally settled on "Demolition University" (actually although we found another theater that was the only English movie playing). It was probably the worst movie I've ever seen, but it was bad in a good way and we all laughed the entire time (the local crowd took it all very seriously though - applauding when the good guys won, shouting encouragement, etc.). Then back to the camp for an early night.
