Day 1 continued
I love eating outside & I LOVE people-watching (which is helpful when you are eating alone) and foreign-people-watching is the best. I try to guess who's local & who's visiting, and if visiting, where they're from. I'd be obvious bc I'm camera-in-hand, peering into every shop I pass.
Ooh! Just saw an aussie military man - similar uniforms to ours actually. And a pair of hippies in an old VW (pictured) - I've always thought of that as an American thing, guess not.
I think I just saw a kookaburra bird (is that real?) tried to get a pic but someone threw trash out the window & scared it away. (yes you read that right - trash out the window)
I've also attached a pic of me - yes in a bathroom mirror - and of this weird aloe drink I bought. Tastes like lychee.
Walked around for a long time & then came back to the hostel & uh oh I'm suddenly exhausted. CanNOT allow myself to sleep at least for another 4 hours.
Hmmm. Maybe just a nap...
