Journal Entry:
In the morning I worked on my journal - I have not been motivated to do it at night. A little later I went to the beach. It was really nice, but a little too windy. The water was all blown out and minutes after getting out I'd be coated in a fine layer of sand. In the evening I hit the internet cafe, then went to a beach cafe for diner and the movie "Snatch". After that moved down to my usual cafe for another movie - "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". It was an excellent movie but a little difficult to follow on a small screen. At the cafe I met three English travelers (Helen, Esther, and Paul) who are invited me to join them to a nearby village for an elephant festival tomorrow morning.
