Journal Entry:
I didn't wake up until eight. Between a lack of motivation and the late hour I decided to not go to the ruins today - I can always go tomorrow morning. I spent the morning working on my journal and writing email. At noon I walked down to my parents hotel to try to catch lunch with them before they left. I walked in just as they were checking out - I had misunderstood their schedule lunch is going to be later for them - and got to see them for a few minutes before the bus whisked them off. I had lunch at my guesthouse and them walked into town. Spent the afternoon in town. After the longish walk I tried to find an internet cafe - I found three, but all three were offline - I think there might be a problem with the provider. To waste some time I explored the market - not too exciting, all the worse parts of a market - it seemed to be all meat market and tourist crap. On my way back I tried another internet place - it too was offline. I decided to stop have a big dinner and then walked back. Spent the evening writing more email and reading. Since I'm leaving tomorrow I sat down and settled the bill with the manager. To finish off the evening I walked up to the road and had a few beers at the nearest bar shack. Back in the room I read.
