We drove away from town taking points, from 7:15am until 12:00 noon. Then we turned around and came straight home. We might have gone out for another hour or so, but we encountered a herd of cattle that most definitely did not want to get out of the small road. So we called it a day. (I’d gotten 31 data points, when I just need to average 20 per day).
We had lunch at the Cabana Quinta, the nicest hotel in town with delicious food, remarkably fast internet (faster than dial-up and only slightly slower than my internet at home), and, I’ve heard, HOT SHOWERS! I’m going to check in there for a two different nights while I’m here (for a whopping $30/ night!) just so I can have a hot shower and some fast internet. I started feeling exhausted (mentally and physically – stilted English and bad Spanish is very mentally wearing) after lunch, so I decided my day was done. Since then, I just came back to my flat and have been dealing with data since I got here. Dealing with data and watching Mr. Bean. I love Mr. Bean. He’s so silly. Also, Mr. Bean and Rio are the only two DVDs that are in English here… so I’ll be watching them over and over and over again until I leave.
Ok. Off to bed for me. Only 17 more looooong work days! Let’s all hope they go by really, really fast (although I doubt they will).
