The other day on my way home, I drove past a heavily bearded guy with headphones on a bike, yawning like there was no tomorrow.
Another day this week, I wandered around a fully functioning, brand-new, yet completely empty prison. I was most impressed with the tiny little windows in the holding rooms.
Also this week, I sat in an emergency care clinic with a relative who has mono, bilateral ear infections, tonsil infection, and enlarged spleen.
A friend and I made our first attempt at Ethiopian food too. She brought the injera and made the doro wat and honey bread (which is so delicious toasted the next day for breakfast). I made the lentils, collard greens, and salad.
Another friend and I are eating leeks for the next two days, as a kind of post-holiday detox. I was promised I wouldn't be hungry, but I am.
