5:30am - wake up
5:50am - go for run, all the while continuing to wake up
6:25am - see Francis, my stalker friend from Togo, waiting at the bottom of the hill, who then proceeds to walk me up the hill
6:45am - eat breakfast, shower, change
8:10am - van leaves for placement
8:45am - work at WiLDAF at the moment (a Women's rights law firm)
12:15pm - lunch (highly predictable food as there's a rotation of about 4 things)
1:30pm - various things: batik or drumming lessons, go to the market, go to the bank, walk around town
6:00pm - dinner (again, highly predictable food as now there are only 3 things that we could have)
7:00pm - seeing as we live in an old folk's home, this is when we start to get tired
7:30pm - look at the clock thinking it's 9 or 10pm
9:00pm - look at the clock and argue that it's really late, proceed to get ready for bed
9:30pm - drink cup of Milo
10:00pm - go to sleep

Besides leaving at 8am and the predictable food, this is very different from our schedule in Salvador! We had lots of late nights fueled by the strong Brazilian coffee the cooks made for us just before they left in the evening. Bed before 11pm was rare!
