Journal Entry:
Slept in - finally! I ended up getting up around 10:30. Spent the morning lounging around working on my journal. Dawn got up around 12:30. She's not feeling that well so we took it easy. Mid afternoon we headed out to the Piazza. It's an area of town with lots of old buildings, people, and stores - lot's of character. We stopped and had coffee (Ethiopian coffee is awesome), Went in to a local cafe type place that was absolutely packed. Everyone was eating the same thing so I tried a piece - it was baklava (kind of) it was incredible sweet and there was no way I could eat the entire thing. Tried to go to a restaurant for an early diner but it didn't open until seven so we sat in a tea house and drank tea and played cards for an hour or two.

Went to diner at an amazing Italian restaurant. Dawn's still not feeling well - I think it's Girardia, but she went to a doctor last we and he didn't think it was. Went back to the house and she immediately went to bed. I stayed up and cleared the rolly polly bugs off my bed then read.
