We loved just sitting and reading here while eating chocolates
We awoke to very heavy rainfall this morning as well as spotty electricity. It was kind of a bummer because we wanted to hike to a waterfall, but the weather was not cooperating with us. Instead we meandered to brunch and His Holiness's complex to see if there was anything going on for His birthday-and there was! However, we arrived a little late and missed all the festiivities. Instead, we were again asked to be in several photos with Indian tourists, something that Larry is relishing in but I dread. Especially because one time while I was waiting for Larry ( while he was using the bathroom) and kind of daydreaming, I came to realize that people were taking my picture! And, on top of that, a young kid was sneakily getting closer and closer to me, his parents standing a few feet away taking pictures of us "together" without me took me a few minutes to realize what was going on! It seems like an odd thing to want a picture of-- a random white girl who hasn't taken a real shower or done laundry in weeks--but I guess I'm a big deal here :)  After my impromptu photo shoot, we found another favorite spot in Mcleod, The Chocolate Log. It's a small dessert cafe at the end of the road, a nice spot to just hang out and read.
