Journal Entry:
Still didn't get much sleep - I think that each day my schedule get's more out of whack and it is starting to snowball. I'm starting to get very tired - tomorrow morning I'm getting up at a reasonable hour - maybe I can force my body back into a normal sleep schedule - that's always been my way of dealing with insomnia - treatment through denile. Being that it's Sunday nothing is open - nothing, even most of the street stalls are closed.

Last night at the restaruant I lent the Danish guy I was talking to my guide book - then forgot to pick it up on my way out. He left thins morning so it looks like I might be guidless. Strangely enough it's not at all scary. The book wasn't real big on details, and I feel pretty confident that I can handle without it. Asked at the reception thinking he might have dropped it off, then went to the restaurant to see if he left it there - he did. os I got the book back, but I still feel pretty good about how confident I felt when I didn't have it.

Spent the afternoon gettin caught of on email and my journal on my handheld. Then I rushed to the internet cafe before they closed - either they closed early, or they don't do Sundays either. Had diner a the same place, but didn't see or hear any other English speakers. Despite being so tired I was totally wired and stayed up late working on a coding problem.
