A different type of work day

So my job in the States involves a lot of computer and meeting time. That basically means I am almost always in a nice heated or air conditioned office. Today... was not the same. I met my boss downstairs for breakfast in the hotel dining room. I wasn't very hungry so I had my much-needed coffee and a little bit of food. After brekafast we walked over to our office. Fortunately it's only 2 blocks from the hotel so we didn't need the driver to come get us. As soon as I stepped outside, I was engulfed by the heat and humidity. Thank goodness I brought sunscreen!!
After a meeting we had, we went to visit one of the textile facotries that we designed the wastewater treatment plant for.
Around 3 o'clock we made our way back to our office to finish up our day. I got back to hotel around 5 or so. Rick came down to my room soon after and ordered up some tea. Rick pulled out a nice bottle of rum that he bought in duty-free and of course we had some of that too! Around 7pm, we decided that we would call it a night. We contemplated going out to dinner but we were both still tired and jet-lagged that we didn't have the energy for it. I ended up ordering up room service and then wrote some emails and made calls back home. I soon found myself in my bed.... in a seriously deep sleep!
